A.C.A. is a network of foster homes, an entity formed to help animals from Evansville Vanderburgh Animal Care and Control. The animals in our foster care program have all come directly from EVACC.
We choose to pull only from EVACC because of the thousands of great animals that come through the shelter each year. Thousands of cats and dogs (and some chickens, horses, and small furries) are relinquished to the shelter each year. Some are given up by owners, victims of hard times, or new living circumstances. A larger portion have come in as strays, found on the streets of Evansville, held for 7 days at the shelter for an owner to reclaim them, and then given a very short period of time in which to find an adoptive home before the kennel is needed again for the next animal that comes in.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Animals in our foster program are in homes, not in the shelter.
If you are interested in meeting our animals please email to make an appointment for a day and time that works best for you.
We are usually at Petsmart on Burkhardt on Saturdays from 9am-3pm, but watch our Facebook page and website to find out where we'll be this weekend!

Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures,
