What is Southern Indiana Save-A-Pet?

This website is a collective effort by seven Southern Indiana Animal Shelters to increase the number of adoptions and decrease the euthanasia statistics in their communities.  Good dogs and cats are dying because no one knows they are there, and because people are hesitant to visit an animal shelter.

These animal shelters are city/county funded.*  As a result, all the animals pictured here have a limited time at the shelter.  Depending on the crowded conditions at each facility, each animal may only have 3 or more days before it must be euthanized to make room for the constant flow of new animals.   PLEASE, if you see a pet on this website that touches your heart, don't wait.   TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE FOR THESE ANIMALS.   Call the shelter or go visit the pet immediately.

Most of these dogs and cats are wonderful animals who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Many are pets that were no longer wanted by their owner for assorted reasons (some had good reasons; most didn't).   Others are non-tagged pets that were lost and never managed to find their way home.   Still others are strays who have never even had a dog house to call their own.  

Many of the puppies and kittens are products of irresponsible pet owners who should have spay/neutered their pets, but suddenly found themselves with litters that they couldn't get rid of.  Many times, the animals in these shelters pay the price for the ignorance and irresponsibility of their human owners.   Sadly, current euthanasia rates vary from 80% to 95% in these facilities.

No dog with any known history of aggression will be pictured here.  To the best of our knowledge, all are candidates for being your "forever" friend, loving and loyal.  PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTING A SHELTER PET - FOR THEIR SAKE AND FOR YOURS!  It will be a decision you won't regret.

If you have any questions for us, or if you are interested in volunteering at any of our shelters, please contact us today.

* Several of these animal shelters have humane societies that are involved in the care and well-being of the animals while they are at the shelter. These volunteer groups are 501(c)3 tax deductible organizations and would welcome your donations and/or your volunteer help. Please call the individual shelter for more information.
