Our Featured Pet...


We rescued Miss Zoey from our animal control with her large family of puppies. She was in sad shape just a few months ago but she's come a long way. She is now spayed, never to be in the family way again and ready for her forever home. She does well crated or left out in her foster home. She is good with other dogs and cats. She is definitely a snuggle bug! Homevisit and References required for adoption. Adoption fee is $100.00


The key to no more homeless pets is spaying and neutering. Each month we run a low-cost spay/neuter transport to Bloomington Pets Alive. Contact us to sign up your animal or if you know of someone that needs to sign up their pet have them contact us. This is the one way we can all work together to make a difference for the animals. Our next transport is December 9, 2014. Spay/Neuter for Dogs $60.00, Cats $30.00. Rabies Vaccine is $15.00. Microchipping, Heartworm Testing and Prevention, Worming, and all other vaccines are available. Contact Judy at 812-346-8751 to get on the list or find out more information. Tell your friends, family, and neighbors. Call us quickly to get on the list.

Adopting a friend

All of our pets for adoptions must go to homes that are committed to providing a loving environment for the animal's lifetime. Adding a pet to your home takes commitment and understanding that the animal you bring in will be yours forever. All of our adoptions will be spayed/neutered before you take them home. Before you contact us to adopt please make sure you are able to commit the time and money it will take to care for a new pet. Adoption fees vary: Remember we are doing this to help offset and pay for spay/neuter and veterinary costs which can range from 100.00 to 500.00 depending on the animal's needs and conditions when coming into rescue.

Purebred adoptions $200.00-$250.00

Mixed Breed Puppies and Young Adults $150.00

Senior and Adult Dogs $85.00 to $100.00

Cats/Kittens $50.00

Adopt a Dog


All adoptions are spayed/neutered and vaccinated before placement and a home visit and references are required. Please e-mail all questions about adopting before you call. We have a limited amount of volunteers that also work full time jobs. Our animals are looking for indoor homes. We have spent time and energy training them and will help in any way to make a smooth transition to their new home.
Meet Miss Kitty she's looking for her forever home! She's about 1 year old and wants to come live with you.

Come Visit Us!

We are on facebook and would love to add you to our friend list. All of our foster animals are kept in foster homes. That means they live with a family and are loved by that family. Our goal is to adopt a well-socialized, happy, healthy animal to you and your family. If you see an animal you are interested in just e-mail and we can connect you with the foster family.
