Kevin!

Howdy Folks! My name is Kevin, I’m a young Blue Heeler mix that found my way to the shelter last month! I’m a spunky boy who will need someone with my kind of breed experience, no other animals in the home and a big ol’ fenced in yard for me to run around in! If this sounds like you, apply for adoption today!

❤️Happy Update❤️‼️

King is doing great! We love receiving updates especially when it's for one of our long-timers. King was surrendered to us back in May of 2019 due to no fault of his own. He had a lot of separation anxiety and trust issues. After time, King decided to put his trust in us so we could understand his needs. His playful side came out, and he started to bloom into a happy dog. Finally, in June of 2020, King found his forever home and a family that loves him unconditionally. We are so thankful for them and the updates they send us!

Road Conditions Update For Unincorporated Porter County As Of 6:00 PM - 2/16/21: First, we would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to the incredibly dedicated Highway Department team for their outstanding work over the past 48 hours under extremely challenging conditions. We also thank our residents for your patience.

The Porter County Highway Department is reporting that they have completed clearing and salting all roads in unincorporated Porter County including main roads & thoroughfares as well as subdivisions and residential areas. There may be some subdivisions that did not get curb to curb clean up because parked cars obstructed their paths. They full Highway Department crew has gone home for a well deserved rest. As usual, they will maintain a partial crew overnight to monitor road conditions.

Unless additional snow falls tonight or drifting starts to occur, they do not plan on having the full crew report until their normal start time tomorrow. If that should change, we will notify you. Otherwise, there will not be any further updates.

TRAVEL WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT!

Road Conditions Update For Unincorporated Porter County As Of 4:30 AM - 2/16/21: TRAVEL WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT! The Porter County Highway Department is reporting that around 6 inches of snow has fallen overnight and is expected to continue until late morning. Drifting is occurring on all roads and many are impassable. Winds remain a significant issue, not only with drifting but with low visibility as well. It is also expected that blowing snow will continue in outlying areas even after the snow stops falling.

The full crew is out on the roads. Their first priority will be to clear drifted and/or impassable main roads and thoroughfares in unincorporated Porter County. At this time, they cannot even estimate when they may be able to address subdivisions and residential areas.

Residents are advised that travel in some areas of unincorporated Porter County may be dangerous and are asked to limit driving to only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations.

We will provide another update at around 6:30 AM.

5:00 PM – 2/15/20: A TRAVEL WATCH is now in effect for roads in unincorporated Porter County. During a Travel Watch, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended. Unincorporated Porter County means roads that are outside the municipal boundaries of cities and towns.

The Highway Department is reporting that snow has begun to fall again with 5 to 8 additional inches predicted overnight. Drifting is prevalent mostly on north/south roads but any roads in open areas could be drifted and impassable. With the high winds, the snow may also affect visibility. The full crew of trucks can only remain on the roads until 5:00 PM because of the Department of Transportation “14 Hour” rule, so only a small crew will be out overnight, primarily responding to emergencies. This combination of factors means that road conditions in parts of unincorporated Porter County are threatening to the safety of the public.

The full crew of trucks will be deployed again at 4:00 AM tomorrow morning, but residents should be aware that it will take a significant amount of time to open roads, clear drifts and do normal plowing. Main roads will be the primary focus when they deploy in the morning. We will provide another update at 4:00 AM tomorrow.

Road Conditions Update For Unincorporated Porter County As Of 1:00 PM – 2/15/21: Currently, the Highway Department is continuing their focus on main roads with quick passes thru major subdivisions only. Drifting still remains a significant problem. Once a road is open, it is drifted closed again within a few hours. Roads that aren’t drifting remain slippery as the salt is having minimal impact because of the temperature. Residents are advised to use caution if driving and avoid open and rural areas at this time.

We are currently evaluating predictions for tonight and tomorrow morning. We will provide another update at 5:00 PM with the Highway Department plans for tonight and tomorrow morning.

Cindy Lou got all dolled up for Valentine’s day because she is looking for that special someone to call her own. No flowers or candy necessary, just love and a place to call home. Cindy Lou is a young shepherd mix that just came to us this month. We are still getting to know Cindy Lou, but from what we know of the pretty girl, she is sweet but does approach you with caution at first. Who could blame her? For more information on Cindy Lou, contact the shelter.

Road Conditions Update For Unincorporated Porter County As of 9:15 AM - 2/14/21: TRAVEL ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT. The Porter County Highway Department is reporting that all main roads have been plowed and salted and they have done pass-throughs in subdivisions and residential areas. There is some drifting in open rural areas and roads may still be slippery. A partial crew will remain out today and tonight covering main thoroughfares and addressing drifting as may be necessary.

Forecasts indicate that more snow will be coming this afternoon and continuing until Tuesday morning with total accumulation of 3 to 6 inches during that time span. Plus, temperatures will remain in the single digits to low teens, accompanied by increasing wind speed and gusts. If this forecast holds true, we will again face the issues of drifting and road icing as salt will be less effective because of the frigid temperature. This combination of factors is the primary reason that the Highway Department wants to maintain a Travel Advisory.

At this time, the Highway Department is planning on deploying the full fleet of trucks at 4:00 AM tomorrow They are maintaining a minimal crew today to let the drivers have some rest before heading into a potential three day snow event.

We will provide another update at 4:00 AM tomorrow morning, unless conditions rapidly deteriorate.

Our Story

Our Mission

It is our mission to reduce animal homelessness and pet overpopulation by caring for and sheltering homeless animals, providing education to the public about responsible ownership, practicing vetted and thorough adoption services, and advocating spay & neuter programs.

We Are No Kill

The Porter County Animal Shelter is a NO KILL Shelter in that we euthanize only non-rehabilitatable pets who are irremediably suffering or dangerous to people or other pets. The Shelter only considers euthanasia as an absolute last resort where no other avenue is open to prevent a danger to the public, other animals, or pain and suffering of the animal.
