About Our Shelter:

The City of Peru Animal Control & Care (City PACC) will take care of lost and stray dogs in the City of Peru. While we do not normally take owner surrendered dogs, we will use our resources to help you find a home for your pet.

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.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our animals are updated DAILY on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CityPACC

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.

Our Adoption Process:

Those interested in adopting must

-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.

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
