Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We will provide a safe environment for the dogs of the City of Peru, until we place them in a forever home!!!
We do not euthanize for length of stay.
Our hours are typically 9-4, Monday-Friday.
As Greg, our ACO, is the only person at the facility, it is best to make arrangements in advance.
We are also, typically, open from 9am-Noon on Saturdays.
-Complete an application (includes any other pets currently in the home plus information on your vet).
-Pay an Adoption Fee that is generally $65.00.
-Most pets are spayed/neutered before leaving our facility.
-In the event they are not, the adopter agrees to spay/neuter within 45 days (if the animal is of age). We work with HOPE Transport of Ft Wayne which will pay/neuter for $60-$70 depending on the sex and size of the animal.
-Agree to ensure the animal has his/her free wellness check through Miami County Vet Clinic within 2 weeks. At that time, the animal will be made current on the rabies vaccination as well.
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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
