PLEASE NOTE REGARDING ADOPTIONS
Due to the Covid-19 Virus we are closed to the public during Adoption Events. If you'd like to see our available animals, we welcome all online applications. Once we receive your application, you will be contacted by one of our adoption counselors to begin the process.
PUBLIC FOOD PROGRAM
Are you in need of dog or cat food? We have a food program available to help you during this difficult time! Just stop in our shelter anytime Monday through Friday from 10:00 to 3:00 and we can help you out. Currently, cat food is limited but we have plenty of dog food.
Our Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel Catsino Night which was scheduled for
August 15, 2020. This event is our major fundraiser for Pet Refuge and will greatly impact our ability to serve the homeless animals of our community. Although we won’t be gathering in person Pet Refuge is
offering an exciting fun-filled Online Auction experience so you can continue to support our mission and join in from wherever you are.
ONLINE AUCTION DETAILS
Begins: August 14th, 5:00 PM ET
Ends: August 16th, 10:00 PM ET
If you purchased tickets for Catsino Night, we encourage you to consider making the ticket price a donation to support the dogs and cats in our care. Questions? 574-386-1589
SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
Pet Refuge is a not-for-profit no-kill animal shelter established in April 1978. Pet Refuge is run by volunteers for the placement of unwanted and abandoned pets into responsible permanent homes.
Although we try to help as many cats and dogs as we can, overpopulation is a problem in our community. Because of this, there is a wait list to intake new animals.
We recommend that you try other options to place the animal while on our wait list.
