The Porter County Animal Shelter and Kids Power Porter County have teamed up
to present the first “Pet-A-Palooza” adoption promotion to find homes for
fifty adoptable animals at the Shelter.
Twenty-five homeless dogs and twenty five homeless cats will be featured in
“Pet-A-Palooza,” which will run July 5-31. Each qualified adopter of the
featured animals will receive a free $20 gift card from Pet Supplies Plus
which was donated by Kids Power Porter County.
“During May and June, the Shelter has taken in 128 dogs and 102 cats,”
stated Shelter Director Jon Thomas, adding that May and June adoptions are
down due to summer breaks and vacations.
“We are bursting at the seams with adoptable animals, and we are again
asking the public for their help in providing forever homes for these great
cats and dogs,” Thomas added.
Kids Power Porter County, a community service group for kids that
exclusively services the Porter County Animal Shelter, has raised $1,000 to
purchase the fifty $20 gift cards to be used as an incentive for potential

Shelter in finding loving homes for our adoptable animals,” said Thomas,
explaining that the Kids Power kids, along with their parents, have raised
well over $12,000 in one year to benefit the Shelter. “Kids Power’s support
of Pet-A-Palooza is another example of the deep commitment that these
amazing kids have for the animals.”
Each of the featured animals will have a special Pet-A-Palooza tag on their
cages. Qualified adopters will receive a $20 Pet Supplies Plus gift card,
once the adoption is finalized.
The adoption fee for cats is $50. The adoption fee for dogs is $100. Each
adopting family is provided with a spay/neuter certificate, if applicable,
that is honored by most local veterinarians. All potential adopters must
