Mainly Allen County, but adopters may be from anywhere.
The Allen County SPCA is a limited admission shelter which does not euthanize for population control. Our mission is to promote the prevention of cruelty to animals by providing: - A safe haven for animals - An effective and comprehensive adoption program - Education and outreach program for the community - Rehabilitation and medical services
Come Meet our Pets:
We are located at 4914 Hanna, 4 blocks east of Route 27 (Lafayette), just south of Pettit. We are open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 12-5, Thursday, 12-7 and Saturday 11-3. We also have cats available for adoption at PetSmart in the Apple Glen Shopping Center.
Our Adoption Process:
Potential adopters are asked to fill out an application for the animal they wish to adopt. For most dogs, a fenced yard is required, all animals currently in the house must be spayed or neutered and current on their shots. All members of the household must meet with the animal prior to adoption and any dogs must meet with a dog they wish to adopt. Once an application is approved, the fee for dogs is $85 and cats $65 which includes up-to-date shots and spaying or neutering. Cats must go home in an airline approved carrier and dogs on a leash. All animals adopted from the ACSPCA must be spayed or neutered.
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.
