Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve predominately Madison County in Indiana but put animals on transports that go all over the country. We do allow out of state adoptions as long as adopters come to the shelter to pick up the animal they are interested in adopting! We have adopted cats and dogs all throughout the country from Wisconsin to Pennsylvania!

About Our Shelter:

Mission: To make second chances possible through the human/animal connection.

We are a group of dedicated people who have the audacity to dream for a compassionate, humane community for our animals. While maintaining that animal abuse is the link to human violence, we also celebrate the human/animal connection from a place of spirituality which sustains us emotionally, touches the hearts of even the most hardened and provides us with unconditional love.

The Animal Protection League is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of animals and people.

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.
