We Wish You A Merry Christmas!

Pulaski Animal Center Christmas

On behalf of the Pulaski Animal Center, we wish you and yours (and your furry, four-footed family) a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Welcome to the Pulaski Animal Center Website!

Our site has just been created, and we are working to update and improve it, so please check back often!

In January, nearly a year ago, a core group of Pulaski County animal lovers committed themselves to the construction of an animal shelter to serve Pulaski County.  At present, Pulaski County does not have an operational animal shelter.  Our group is committed to addressing the problem of stray, lost and abandoned animals in our community.  Our first goal is the acquisition of land for a shelter, and we have worked tirelessly to accomplish this important first step.

The Pulaski Animal Center was created as a non-profit organization.  We filed for 501(c)(3) non-profit status with the state of Indiana, and we established a board of directors, adopted by-laws, drafted a mission statement, and formed a partnership with the Pulaski Community Foundation.  The current board members are:  Karen Shidler, president; Lisa Traylor-Wolff, Monica O’Conner, Christine Smith, Jaime Keller, Chris Mills, and Olivia Taff.

The Pulaski Animal Center will help save the lives of lost, abandoned or surrendered animals.  We will humanely care for animals and facilitate the return of lost animals.  The Pulaski Animal Center will work to educate our community and raise awareness about the humane care of animals, prevention of cruelty to animals, and control of pet overpopulation
