The Porter County Animal Control Unit is a part of the Porter County Animal Shelter. As law enforcement officers, their primary responsibility is to enforce the Porter County Animal Control Ordinance. When they are not responding to calls, our Officers work at the Shelter to train and socialize our animals to improve their chances of finding a loving forever home.
