Surrendering a pet can be an incredibly difficult decision for you. As a responsible pet owner, you made a lifetime commitment to your furry family member and they counted on you to provide them a FOREVER home.
The Porter County Animal Shelter wants to support you in making the best decision for you and your pet. Accordingly, we have established the following required step by step process to help guide you.
The Shelter does not require a fee for owner surrenders, but even a $50 donation will help defray our costs and will certainly be appreciated. If your animal is not spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations or micro chipped, it could cost us hundreds of dollars before we can offer your pet for adoption.
An appointment scheduled in advance is REQUIRED to surrender your pet!
We Do NOT Accept Animals From Outside Of Porter County.
