Funds are Needed

We could use some help with our medical bills. We could use some funds to work with a professional behaviorist on some of our dogs whose spirits have been broken or scarred. We could use some help with our boarding bills. We could use some help with buying supplies such as heartworm prevention/flea/tick, etc. As the song goes, “I ain’t too proud to beg!” Anything for these beautiful souls.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! 

Nelson’s Chicken Fundraiser Event

We will be selling delicious Nelson’s chicken and pit-tatoes to help offset some of our recent medical costs. YOU get some tasty food and WE get some moolah to pay our vet bills (which will then enable us to save more dogs and cats that need us the most)! You can pre-order via paypal, just indicate how many chickens and orders of pit-tatoes you’d like in the message portion. Our paypal address is Pre-sale pickup will be from 11:00am to 1:00pm on Sunday, July 20th, at the Walgreens in Valparaiso on the corner of Route 30 and Washington. Additionally, for those who PRE-ORDER, we will have a pickup location in Schererville, IN (TBD) from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. Some of our supporters buy multiple chickens and freeze them, then just toss them on the grill to re-heat. They rave about how dee-lish and easy it is!!!  Half chickens are $6.50 and Pit-tatoes are $3.00. For those not familiar, the chicken and potatoes are fully cooked, hot and ready to eat! Pre-orders will be guaranteed chicken and pit-tatoes during the pickup window of 11:00am to 1:00pm at the Valparaiso location, 12:00pm to 1:00pm at the Schererville location. Any remaining will be first come, first served. Please place your orders early and share this event. As always, we are so very appreciative of your support! ♥


Lilly Munster’s babies are still waiting for their families. Most people pass up on the black kittens to look at the colorful ones. I’ll never understand why black animals are viewed so differently. To help these babies get adopted while they’re still young, this summer’s KittyPalooza Event will focus on adoption of the often overlooked black cats. All kitten adoptions are now $50 each, or two for $75. This still includes spay/neuter, rabies and vaccines. Email us today at if you’re interested. We still have five more black kittens from two other litters that are growing up in rescue and will soon need homes!

Adoption Vests Needed

We love our dogs and cats to look stylish at our events. The best way to get them noticed is to have them wear an adoption vest, supporting ABRA’s name. If you’d like to donate a vest to ABRA, check out Give A Dog A Home on Facebook and visit their Etsy store. Vests run about $20 each and we can use them in all sizes! They even have the ABRA teal color and can be custom printed with just about any slogan. We only have a few for this adoption season and would love to have more. Summer event season for adoptions and expos has officially begun!

Looking for Love

We have many amazing dogs and cats looking for forever homes and foster homes. If you are interesting in fostering, please fill out our volunteer application. The rescue provides you with everything you need for the animal. You provide the home and the love. Fostering an animal is one of the most rewarding things you can do. The dogs/cats show their appreciation each day with wagging tails and cuddles.
