Our Home

Serving the city of Greensburg and all of Decatur County, Indiana, we are a local government funded facility that consists of Animal Control and the Animal Shelter. Our focus is domestic animal rescue and adoptions.

In spite of space limitations, our euthanasia percentage is less than half the national average due largely to our wonderful volunteers. We work very hard to provide a loving and caring environment for our animals while they are with us.

We are open to the public during the above hours. Adoptions are not limited to city or county residents. Come visit us and meet your future pet!

We gratefully accept donations of money and materials for animal care and enrichment. CLICK here to see our Wish List of items we need.

  1. I’m looking for a puppy I want another miniature Pinscher but I’m having no luck so I’m pretty much looking for any breed of puppy to add to my home


  2. I know that currently this shelter is under quarantine for cats, but still I want to rescue two stray kittens, supposedly 3-4 months old bedding right outside my apartment. Ok contacted near by county’s shelter and was told because it is owned by municipal government, they cannot take cats outside their county. Do you have any back up plan before the clearance of the quarantine on MARCH 14? I’m worried that the kittens may weaken and frigid with this severe winter weather. I have not been able to capture them. Please, any inputs or thoughts on such emergency situation is appreciated. Thank you.


  3. We adopted a kitten here this year and he is past due to be neutered which we were told was included in adoption — we keep calling and the phone doesn’t connect. Could you tell me when the shelter will reopen — thank you


  4. I am needing to get my dog spayed and was told that you are in with a group that does it fairly inexpensive. Will someone please get back to me with some information about this?


    • Just seen where you are wanting to add a new pet to your family. We have a 7month old Golden Lab female. She has had all her shots and been spayed. We are older people didn’t realize how much playful she would have been.She’s just to much as a puppy for us to handle. Do you live in the country we do. She has been an inside and outside dog. Do you have children or other pets she does love other pets and I know likes kids I think this is what she needs someone to play alot with.


  5. These two dogs have been out in the rain all day today (Thursday July 30th ) it’s now 8:12 pm they are soaked tangled up so terribly that they can’t move . What can be done about this!!! To me this is animal abuse . It’s at the corner of Integrity and Liberty streets in Greensburg


  6. I am at the south east corner of North St and Wilder in Greensburg. There is an emaciated mid-size brown dog tied up in the yard with no water. Can you please help it. Thank you. My number is 812-593-0809.


  7. Eight-year-old Siamese not registered but full blooded. Completely declawed all four paws. Cannot be around other pets or children one owner cat.


  8. Are you guys doing welfare checks right now? I just got a kitten from a lady and the kitten is deaf and she didn’t even know, had a major eye infection, covered in fleas, was anemic, and she had at least 14 cats in her home, adults and kittens all included. Can there be a welfare check on her? I’m scared for the health of the other cats.


  9. Will you have any more neuter for cats coming up? I have a 7 month old male kitten i want to get fixed but it is way to expensive for me to take him to the vet, especially with everything else going on.
    Thanks for any help you can inform me on and for everything you all do for the animals.
