Are dogs spayed or neutered before adoption?

Under Indiana State Law and The Porter County Animal Control Ordinance, all of our adoptable animals must be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before they leave the shelter for their new forever home. If the dog you have adopted has not been spayed or neutered, the shelter will arrange for the dog to be spayed or neutered before they leave the shelter.
