Who We Are

Elwood Animal Care & Control is located in Elwood, Indiana. We are a no-kill shelter and will keep animals in our care until they find forever homes or are pulled by rescues. We do take in owner surrenders/strays as room allows but injured/aggressive animals have top priority.

We rely on donations from the public.. Items can be dropped off at the shelter (511 North 14th Street, Elwood). The following items are always needed:

-Bleach & Cleaning Supplies (Pinsol, Hard Surface Cleaner, Laundry Detergant, blue Dawn Dish Soap, Paper Towels, Scrub brushes/Scrubbies, Mops, Mop Heads, Spray Bottles, etc)

-Dry/Canned Dog & Cat Food

-Cat Litter, Litter Boxes & Litter Scoopers

-Dog Collars/Leashes/Harnesses

-Rugs/Towels/Blankets/Sheets/Pillow Cases (new or used!)

-Trash Bags (all sizes!)


We are also always in need of monetary donations for the medical care of our animals. If you are sending a check, feel free to make it out to "Elwood Animal Care & Control OR Elwood Animal Shelter" Monetary donations can be sent to the following address:

The City Of Elwood, Clerk Treasurer's Office, 1505 South "B" Street, Elwood, IN 46036
