We are the Animal Welfare League of Kosciusko County. Among our goals are providing happy, healthy animals to families in our community for adoption, the prevention of cruelty to animals, and the education of others in the care of animals. It is also the policy of the league to provide humane care and treatment for the animals in our facility, and to seek to return lost animals to their owners.

VOLUNTEERS are welcome! We can use many skills and much help!

Our Featured Animals!

We have many MORE beautiful, friendly, adoptable animals who are just waiting to meet you. Please check them out on our adoptables lists, and then come visit them to discover your perfect companion. They're even more adorable in person!

The procedure for adopting one of our animals is as follows:

Please come in and let us help you select the pet most appropriate for you and your family. Most of our animals are now "temperament tested" by our trainer and we can help you find the pet that will fit your family.

Once you select your new pet, we ask you to sign an adoption contract that spells out our obligations to you and your obligations to us and your new pet. After you have filled out the adoption application, then read and signed the adoption contract and paid for your pet, you will receive your pet and an adoption package that contains many gifts for you and your new animal (see below under fees).

We try to make the adoption process simple and enjoyable for you and your new pet. Please come in for a visit and give us a try!
