Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We serve Madison County, IN and surrounding areas.
Our adoptions are not limited to these areas as pets have been placed in new forever homes in all of the Great Lake states and others,
Thousands of dogs and cats are unwanted or abandoned each year. Our belief is that all pets should be spayed or neutered to reduce the number of discarded pets. Our education commitment is to promote a stronger understanding for the necessity of proper care, medical treatment, training and the costs of pet ownership.
Countryside Animal Rescue offers initiatives and resources to coordinate low-cost spay/neuter programs and clinics, along with seeking financial support to those pet owners that may not be able to afford traditional methods.
Through our educational programs and outreach ventures, we focus on issues that may prevent the process of pet owners ultimately choosing the undesirable options of abandoning or no longer wishing to keep their pet. Unwanted pets eventually become the responsibility of animal welfare groups or government agencies that are overburdened with these dogs and cats.
Countryside Animal Rescue works with a network of foster homes to provide care, housing, food, medical assistance and behavioral training for dogs and cats in need. Our foster program provides a loving, caring ‘home’ environment as an alternative to kennel conditions in shelter facilities utilized by some animal welfare groups. Our foster program enables our funds to go directly to the animals’ needs rather than incur expenses for the overhead of maintaining a structure and its associated costs.
Our adoption programs and placement services assist in locating pets that will be life-long match to insure a forever home for a dog or cat. We offer lost and found services, pet identification and other programs to reduce the number of stray, lost or homeless pets.
Countryside Animal Rescue is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization operated solely by volunteers and primarily on the kindness of our donors and members
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.
