Porter County could wind up with two animal shelters

Jeanne Sommers said her efforts in helping to establish the Lakeshore PAWS pet adoption group has moved ahead much more quickly than she expected.

The group has found homes for the equivalent of one dog a day since it was formed in May and is now hopeful it can build a shelter within the next year or two.

Yet, the move may end up testing the generosity of pet lovers across the county.

Porter County Commissioner Nancy Adams, R-Center, said she too may turn to fundraising over the next year or so to generate at least part of the money needed to replace the county’s aging and cramped shelter along Ind. 2, south of U.S. 30.

“I think we can raise quite a bit,” she said.
