Animal Adoption / Redemption

The La Porte Animal Shelter adopts animals every day during normal business hours. All animals adopted through the shelter are required to have a current rabies vaccination and be spayed or neutered. To learn about the animals who are currently available for adoption at our facility, please visit us on Facebook.

Animal Redemption
An owner of a dog or cat wishing to claim their animal from the shelter must contact the shelter and make arrangements to pick up the animal and pay the fees. The pound fees are $35 for the first 24 hours and $5 for every additional 24-hour period. If the animal is not currently vaccinated for rabies a fee of $10 will be added for a rabies vaccination. If the animal does not have a current city registration the registration fees will apply.
