American Greyhound helps find forever homes

Chance is a handsome greyhound that turned 4 in January. This picture was taken during his car ride on his way to a new life with his foster home. American Greyhound rescued Chance from a shelter in Jay County, Ind. He has racing tattoos, so he had a career at the racetrack before he found himself in an animal shelter. Chance is a very happy boy who always has a wagging tail. He loves meeting new people and four-legged friends as well. He is outgoing, curious and just loves living the good life in his foster home. He is looking for his forever home and is available for adoption.

American Greyhound is a Hobart-based not-for-profit corporation that saves unwanted greyhounds that would otherwise be destroyed.  It provides the necessary veterinary care and finds the greyhounds homes in which to live out their lives as pets.

American Greyhound was founded to insure that racing greyhounds that have ended their careers would live out their lives as happy, family pets.  Now, non-racing greyhounds are ending up in shelters and humane organizations, too. Those hounds need American Greyhound’s help, too.

In order for American Greyhound to save as many lives as possible, foster homes are essential pieces of the puzzle.  Foster homes are the heart and soul of the rescue as they are the hounds’ first stop to their new lives.

American Greyhound does not have a kennel facility. Because of that, it can only rescue as many hounds as there are available foster homes.

Fostering is one of the best ways you can help a greyhound if you are not in a position to adopt.  American Greyhound covers all veterinary costs and provides all the supplies you may need for your fostered greyhound.  You supply a couple of meals per day, lots of love and a home to live in until they find their forever home.

The feeling of knowing a greyhound has a new life because of you is overwhelmingly joyous and heartwarming.  For more information, contact Nicole Graves at 219-395-4432 or e-mail foster@americangreyhound.org.

“We’ve got a history of doing community based projects” said Neil Davey, sales associate at Valparaiso Kovenz. “We did the carving at the veteran’s memorial for Swan Lake Park in Michigan City. We have also done a lot of etching works from the bricks at veteran’s memorials and parks in Northwest Indiana.”

Davey said they often encounter individuals who want an engraved pet marker or other memorial. He said many people often request the name of their pet as well as a symbol to be placed on pet markers or benches that they then place in their yard or garden.

The newest service offered at Kovenz is called Life Gem. Life Gem allows for the ashes of a loved one or beloved pet to be compressed into a diamond that can then be worn in jewelry.

“This way you can be sure to always keep a loved one or pet close at all times,” Davey said.

Davey said that services for pets such as the ones they offer, aid in the grief process when a pet has passed away.

Spidey and Biddy – Featured Independent Cat Society Cats



Spidey and Biddy are two amazing brothers with unique features and a ton of love to give.

Spidey is a lovable black kitty who just happens to have a special feature – extra toes on every foot.  As a polydactyl – or “Hemingway cat” – Spidey certainly has all of the tools in his arsenal to become the superhero of your household.

His brother Biddy doesn’t have extra toes, but a unique characteristic of his own. As a kitten, Biddy suffered a terrible eye infection that scarred parts of his corneas. He now has what appears to be bluish cataracts on each eye, but don’t worry, he’s not in pain.  In fact, he may have perfectly good (though not perfect) vision for the rest of his life. He climbs into laps and plays just like any happy young cat would, and with Spidey around, they are two times the fun, excitement, and joy

Porter County Animal Shelter; It’s still a busy time of year for shelters

It is still a busy time of the year for animal shelters throughout the country and the Porter County Animal Shelter (PCAS) is no exception. At this very moment, Porter County is 20 percent over the capacity that the shelter was built to hold over 30 years ago.

Operating as a “no-kill” shelter since 2008, the challenge of caring for the animals of the community Is a recurring one. The phrase “no kill” equation is made up of two important components, adoption and spaying/neutering.

The most significant part of the equation is proactively spaying/neutering instead of reactively placing unwanted pets in new homes. Although the shelter has struggled since the dramatic shift to “no-kill” in 2008, their preemptive spay/neuter program has been successful.

The number of animals admitted has gone down significantly since the reform and the shelter now has a strict policy on following up on animals released with spay/neuter certificates. PCAS’ goal is to never release an animal until they can be spayed/neutered but that is a reality that cannot be fulfilled quite yet.

With several low-cost options available for pet owners, the outlook is bright. With active TNR program for feral cats and full low cost monthly spay/neuter transport, PCAS is encouraged that the community is doing their part to avoid unnecessary litters.

Yet, no matter how diligently the shelter administration works to create successful programs to increase adoptions or encourage spaying/neutering, PCAS is currently overwhelmed and fighting for room to house animals while maintaining its “no-kill” status.

The Porter County Animal Shelter is located at 2056 Heavilin Road in Valparaiso.  For more information on fostering, visit or call the shelter at 219-465-3550 and ask to speak to a member of the management team.
