“I cannot thank them enough,” said Jane Bernard, LaPorte County Small Animal Shelter Director. “They came to our rescue when funds ran short, and we would not have been able to complete the project if it wasn’t for their commitment to provide the labor and expertise to get the job done. The finished room is such an improved environment for our cats spending time at the shelter and also very welcoming for the public to view our cats. We truly appreciate the hard work that went into upgrading our cat room.” The LaPorte County Animal Shelter provides animal control services for all unincorporated areas of LaPorte County and also operates the county animal shelter. It is located at 2855 West State Road 2 in La Porte, Ind.
