Outside of a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the recent blueness from the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy. His bare toes, extending from his overalled legs, crackled from the fallen palmettos. He leaped to the air, flinging his arms toward a flock of white doves circling above him.
The Allen County SPCA has been providing a safe haven for homeless cats and dogs in Northeast Indiana for more than 65 years. We are a limited-intake facility offering an effective and comprehensive adoption program. Every year we place thousands of dogs and cats into forever homes. Our animals come to us from a variety of circumstances and require attention from the moment they arrive. While in our care, we provide medical and rehabilitation services and behavior assessments as necessary to give our animals the best opportunity for adoption.
Each pet available for adoption is spayed or neutered and current on all vaccines. Operating without any financial support from the government, the Allen County SPCA survives through the generosity of pet lovers in our community who wish to help dogs and cats in need. In addition, to deepen the impact of our organization and its reach, we offer additional services such as a weekly pet food bank open to those pet owners in need throughout our community.
Our community pet food bank and resource center is open on Saturdays between the hours of 9 - 11 am when we have food available. The Allen County SPCA will promote the prevention of cruelty to animals by providing a safe haven for animals, an effective and comprehensive adoption program, education and outreach programs for the community and deep and broad membership and volunteer programs. How do you get the animals in your program? Our animals come to us as transfers from other shelters or from owners who have made the difficult decision to surrender their pet.
Many shelters in Northeast Indiana and Northwest Ohio are overcrowded with animals. We work with these shelters and with other rescues to bring in animals from around the region and make them available to you through our adoption program. As we make every effort to keep pets with their families, we know there are times this is not possible. Some of the pets available for adoption were surrendered to us by their families, due to circumstances beyond their control.
How long do you keep the animals in your care? The animals in our adoption program remain in our care or the care of a foster family until they find a forever home. Occasionally, we do humanely euthanize animals with incurable illnesses or severe aggression, but never for population control. Can I adopt an animal if I live outside of Allen County? Yes! Anyone with an approved application can adopt one of our animals.

EVERYDOG Article written by volunteer Debra Lockhart I’ve been volunteering with a local rescue for about a year now and have loved every minute of it. In the past year, I’ve transported dogs, helped rescue dogs off of a chain, helped a dog give birth, adopted and said goodbye as some of my favorites have found their forever home.
I’ve gotten to know some dogs more than others and have cheered nearly every adoption and only shed a tear or two for a few who have especially touched me in some way. Still, there was something missing. This rescue is foster based, and at this time that is the one thing I’m not able to do, so most of my interactions come from adoption events or transport services. If I could bring my dog to work with me things might be different, because sometimes you just need to hug a dog or play with a kitty, so I began volunteering at our local SPCA.
I figured that they were located close enough to my office that I could spend a lunch hour or two each week relaxing in the company of a furry little friend under the guise of helping them while in all actuality, reaping the benefits that come with cuddling a pet. Orientation was in two parts so after part one, I was able to ‘socialize with cats’ and I spent a good portion of a lunch hour on the floor of a kitty room getting and giving some soft purr-y love.
Part two allowed us to interact with the dogs and there was a special boy whom I met at both orientations and I was eager to go back and really interact with him on my first “dog day.” Its funny how a dog (or any animal, really) can grab your heartstrings and how it varies from person to person as to who that special furry pal may be. A fellow volunteer nudged me and pointed at a dog, “That’s my dog.
I’m going to adopt that one.” “Hmmm, cute dog, nothing special,” I thought. He or she was the kind of dog I might not have given a second glance at if I weren’t here to generally socialize with the dogs. In the kennel next to “her dog” was the special someone who had me at first glance. Truth be told, “special boy” is not usually someone who would grab my attention… except he did.
He was just a medium sized dog, medium hair, medium build but with a deep chest and funny white paws that were too big for his body. (As a further testament to how perception skews what we actually see, he is listed as a large dog with long hair.) There was nothing exceptional… but his eyes. Ah, those soulful cinnamon eyes peering at me over the chew toy he hopefully offered me, they had me at hello.
