Frequently Asked Questions About Pet Adoption
Where are you located?
We are located at 10801 Wicker Ave, St. John, IN 46373.
Do you put any pets down if they're not adopted in a certain time period? How long do you keep pets who are brought to your facility?
Animals are kept sheltered until they find homes, no matter how long it takes unless they are seriously ill and their quality of life is considered unacceptable by a DVM.
Why was my puppy or kitten altered at such a young age?
The spay/neuter procedure must be done by the time a pet is 6 months of age. If it is not completed in the allotted time, any fees associated with the spay/neuter will be the responsibility of the adopter. Pets older than 6 months of age at the time of adoption will be spayed/neutered before leaving the hospital.
Where do our adoptables come from?
We get our adoptables through Jellystone Bark's Rescue Rangers who rescue countless adoptable pets awaiting their avoidable fate of euthanasia in high-kill facilities. This gives these precious pets a second chance and all the time they need to find their forever homes.
How do you determine the breed of dog for adoption?
As all dogs we get are rescues, and often mixed breeds, our veterinarians provide an educated guess based on the physical features of the animal as well as information provided by the rescue.
