La Porte County Small Animal Shelter

Our Pet List


Who We Are

We provide animal control services for all unincorporated areas of La Porte County, and we also operate the county animal shelter. We are dedicated to citizen safety, animal rescue, and encouraging responsible pet ownership through education and reduced-cost spay/neuter vouchers. We enforce municipal ordinances and laws governing animal control and protection and provide a safe and caring environment for stray animals in need.

While our primary goal is to reunite lost pets with their owners, we are also committed to finding responsible, loving homes for as many animals as possible.

We also sell La Porte County dog tags that must be purchased yearly per County ordinance. The cost is $5.00 per tag or $50.00 for a kennel license (6 dogs or more).

Adopting a friend

Dog/Puppy adoption: $65.00 ($30.00 spay/neuter deposit)
Cat/Kitten adoption: $65.00 ($30.00 spay/neuter deposit)

If interested in adopting an animal, an application must be completed at the shelter and there is a 24-hour waiting period. Adopters must be over 21 years of age.

The adopted animal must be spayed or neutered by a specific date and a legally binding contract to that effect must be signed at the time of the adoption.

Adoptions are open to residents of La Porte County; however, out-of-county adoptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We do not ship animals to adopters.
