Parke County Animal Welfare Services Inc (PAWS)'s Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

Application must be completed before being considered for adoption.

2. Home Check

Home check generally includes meeting the pet of interest and allowing us to observe your home environment.

3. Sign Adoption Contract

30-day foster perior required prior to finalizing adoption.

4. Pay Fee

Part of the fee due when contract is signed; the rest is due when 30-day foster period is completed and adoption is made final.

We offer "foster-to-adopt" as opposed to the traditional "first come, first serve" policy most adoption agencies employ.

Our Foster-to-Adopt program allows you and your potential new pet to experience each other in your home environment without having to make an immediate decision and final commitment up front; a "trial run" so to speak.

We require adopters to pay a deposit and foster their potential new pet for a minimum of 30 consecutive days prior to finalizing the adoption. The pet may be returned at any time within the specified time-period and the adoption deposit will be fully refunded.

After the foster period is complete and you have decided to make a lifetime commitment to the pet, you will then pay the remainder of the pet’s adoption fee and the adoption will be finalized.

About Parke County Animal Welfare Services Inc (PAWS)


Parke County Animal Welfare Services Inc (PAWS), formerly known as "OTIS" or "The OTIS Foundation Inc" is a 501(c)3 registered tax-exempt nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our community and beyond. We are a foster-based organization.

Because we have no physical location or facility, we take on ONLY the most extreme cases, which generally consists only of STRAY companion animals in need of emergency veterinary care (hit by car, shot, etc.) and animals seized by law enforcement in cruelty investigations. We do NOT accept owner surrenders; that is what an animal shelter/humane society is for. We are not an animal shelter.

We are a small group of people who love animals and believe in the value of all living beings. We want to ensure that our community's pets are treated with respect and teach others to recognize and understand the value of the animals' lives.

Through education and advocacy, we strive to promote the importance of proper animal care, spaying/neutering, adoption/fostering, as well as the importance of enhancing animal protection laws.
