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.

    • Valerie,

      The pups actually went to Madison today to work with a prison program there where the inmates have a pup that they take care of and train. The programs are very successful for inmates and the dogs also. The momma is still available for adoption. The adoption fee is 100.00 which covers a spay, rabies shot, and all vaccinations.

  9. Someone opened my back gate and my 7 yr old Morkie is gone. I work til after 2 am and fear he’s been gone all day. I put a green sweater on him this morning and do not recall him having his collar/tags on. His name is Ollie and is mostly black with silver throughout and white chest. Approx. 17 lbs. He is friendly but not to be teased or otherwise messed with as he will bite. I will call shelter in am but am posting this in event he’s been brought there or someone has seen him. Praying he just comes home.

  20. A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that allows your doctor to check for diseases in your body. The scan uses a special dye containing radioactive tracers. These tracers are either swallowed, inhaled, or injected into a vein in your arm depending on what part of the body is being examined.

  21. We are looking to adopt another dog to add to our family. He or she will need to be either a small or medium dog and not a puppy. We currently have a male who is a year and a half old and will not stay by himself. He is use to having his brothers around so we have decided to adopt a brother or sister for him. He likes all dogs and he is really relaxed and lazy. So we are not looking for anything too hyper.
