Welcome to Loving Heart Animal Shelter!

The Loving Heart Animal Shelter is a private, independent, 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors composed of community members who are dedicated to animal welfare and currently a full time Executive Director. We are funded primarily through private donations and service revenue. We are not controlled or funded by any statewide or national organization. Donations made to national animal welfare groups do not benefit our local pets. We are based in Lafayette, Indiana.


Loving Heart Animal Shelter is a no-kill animal shelter and adoption organization. Our shelter strives to create an environment which enhances awareness of the humane treatment of animals. The mission of Loving Heart Animal Shelter is to rescue healthy and treatable dogs. This shall include, but is not limited to sick, injured and abused animals, strays, and owner relinquished animals. We will nurture and restore them to happy healthy lives in loving permanent homes.
