Spencer County Animal Control Shelter

824E CR 800N
Chrisney, IN 47611

Our Mission

The shelter has been open since October 17, 2012.  Activity is picking up.  We have had 5 taken into rescues, one more going to rescue on Friday and today was our first adoption.  We hope that the animals continue to be that lucky.  We hope to add services as we can afford them.  Internet access will be the next step so that adoptors and rescues can contact the shelter by e-mail.  We hope to have that in about 2 weeks.

The shelter is bare bones as most municipal shelters are.  Donations for the animals of any kind will be appreciated.  Money, food, bedding, collars, leashes, food and water bowls, laundry supplies, cleaning supplies will always be in short supply.

Spencer County Animal Control Shelter is a tax funded shelter for Spencer County Indiana.  The shelter accepts strays and owner surrenders from Spencer County residents and law enforcement.  The time an animal stays at the shelter depends on how many animals are being held.  The cap

Adoption Policy

Dogs may be selected from our list.  You will need to come to the shelter or send payment in full prior to adopting the dog.  The dog will then be transported to our local veterinarian where you will be able to pick it up after it is altered and received its rabies shot.  Adoption fees include spay/neuter and rabies shot.  No refunds will be made after the dog is altered.  Additional shots and medical tests can be arranged with the veterinarian or those can be performed at the adoptors veterinarian.

Approved rescue groups may pull at no charge.  An approved group will need to have a policy of not adopting out unaltered animals.
