Hendricks County Animal Control/Shelter

It is the objective of the Hendricks County Animal Control/Shelter to provide for the safety and health of the citizens of Hendricks County by removal of the unwanted animal population from the public properties and neighborhoods, to control the problem of domestic animals running at large and to prevent the spread of rabies.  There is no intent to remove or separate pets from owners.  Every attempt to locate owners with their pets is made when animals with tags or a microchip are impounded.  In addition to its statutory duties, the Hendricks County Animal Control/Shelter will provide limited services for the citizens of Hendricks County including animal adoption and the assistance to individuals who have lost or found animals.
