Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

NW Indiana and into IL - as a new rescue, we are limiting adoptions to within 50 miles of area code 46375, but will expand our area as we build our volunteer force.

About Our Rescue Group:

I have loved animals since I was a child, and am especially fond of hounds. I have five rescue dogs of my own - all hounds, and three cats - all found as strays and were unable to find their owners. I am heartbroken daily as I see the number of beautiful hounds dumped at high-kill shelters, especially in the south. Many have been used for hunting and have had virtually NO vetting. Hounds make wonderful family pets and I want to save as many as we can. As Hearts and Hounds Rescue grows we will be taking other breeds, including cats.

In addition to saving dogs and cats from kill shelters and finding them homes, our long-term goals include increasing community involvement. We will be starting childrens' groups - Hearts and Hounds KIDS and Hearts and Hounds TEENS.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fee for most dogs is $150 (dogs are fully vetted, spayed/neutered, and will be microchipped). Adopters will be be required to sign an adoption contract, including a return to rescue policy should they not be able to keep the animal. We will check references, including the adopter's vet, and do a home check. We currently don't have fosters to handle cats, but when we do the adoption policies for cats will be basically the same as for dogs. Adoption fee for cats will be $100-150.

Our Adopted Pets:

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, 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.
