Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We ONLY accept canines and felines from Perry County residences. However, we adopt to families/individuals in other cities and states.

About Our Shelter:

The Perry County Animal Shelter, Inc. is a state of the art privately owned shelter located in Perry County, Indiana. We accept surrenders from Perry County only, but allow adoptions from anywhere. The Board of Directors took control of the facility on July 1, 2004 & has made vast improvements since then, including the construction of a new facility.

Our new facility has 12 isolation kennels and 12 adoption kennels. We have separate isolation for kittens, cats, and puppies. The facility was designed for maximum disease control, including 3 separate heating, cooling, and ventilation zones between the isolation and adoption areas. Strict protocols are implemented to prevent spread of any disease.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
