The Blackford County Animal Shelter, Inc. is a non-profit organization. We provide animal control for Blackford County, Hartford City, Montpelier, and Shamrock Lakes. Our mission is to provide temporary shelter, care and medical attention for stray, surrendered or otherwise homeless cats and dogs in Blackford County, to prevent animal cruelty and neglect and prosecute offenders, to strengthen the human-animal bond through education and adoption, and to promote the importance of spaying and neutering to help control the pet overpopulation.
Our shelter is full of wonderful cats and dogs just waiting for you to come and take them home.

Our adoption requirements are that you must provide a loving home and all your current animals are spayed or neutered. We begin the adoption process with an adoption application.

Our adoption rates are as follows:
Cost Spay/Neuter Vaccinations Flea prevention Heartworm Test FIV Test Microchip
Puppies < 1 year $125 N/A
Dogs > 1 year $110 N/A
Kittens < 1 year $50
Cats > 1 year $40

Stop by the Muncie, Carmel,or Fort Wayne Maysville Rd Petsmarts on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (February 13th-15th) to meet some of the great cats and dogs that we have available for adoption. This is a great opportunity to meet the animals, talk to staff, and receive answers to any questions you may have!
