Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a loving shelter located in Schererville, Indiana. We house and care for the animals picked up as strays within our town limits.

About Our Shelter:

The Schererville Animal Control & Shelter is run by 2 Animal Control Officers. They put in many hours to run a successful animal control program and maintain the shelter. With every stray that comes in our animal control officers goal is to find an owner. This sometimes requires an investigation to reunite or press charges if an animal has been neglected or abused.
Not only our they a voice for the animals but they maintain the shelter where these animals are temporarily being held. They clean the shelter daily, make sure the animals have food and water, get excise, have proper vetting if needed, administer medication, and love them.
All of the animals here at the shelter who are not claimed are put up for adoption through our facility as well as our court case animals if the judge rules that they should not go back to their previous owner. The 2 animal control officers then proceed with the adoption process and find these animals forever loving homes.
Both of the ACO's at this facility have a love and passion for animals. They understand that working with animals can be very stressful. Being animal control they see mostly the bad, but with the bad comes the good. Finding a loving home for an abused animal or a stray that was never claimed always trumps the bad.

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.
