We are an animal adoption center located in Crown Point, Indiana under the direction of the Lake County Sheriff's Department. We are a no-kill facility of adoptable pets. We also send pets to rescues when our facility is over crowded. We not only strive to maintain a healthy, safe and comfortable atmosphere for any animal that stays in our facility, but we also do our best to find good, loving homes for all our animals.

97.50% Adoption Rate "We are a no-kill facility of adoptable pets!"  We take in over 800 animals annually and place 780 of these animals in HOMES or RESCUES.
