Loving Heart Animal Shelter is a no-kill animal shelter and adoption organization founded in 2009. Our mission is to rescue healthy and treatable dogs and cats while creating an environment that enhances awareness of humane treatment of animals. Based in Lafayette, IN, we are a private and independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors. We are funded primarily through private donations/service revenue and are not controlled or funded by any statewide or national organization (donations made to national animal welfare groups do not benefit our local pets).


Our goal at Loving Heart is to provide safe shelter for animals who are sick, injured, abused, found stray, relinquished by their owners, etc., and to nurture and restore them to happy, healthy lives in loving, permanent homes.

Mutt of the Month


Ruffles & Cheeto

Ruffles (foreground) and Cheeto are young, purebred German Shepherds looking for a forever home. Both of them can be a bit shy at first, but they absolutely love to chase balls and could play fetch for hours. Although not required, they would love to be adopted together. They will make wonderful companions for an active family.


Will you provide Ruffles or Cheeto (or both of them) with a loving home? Apply to adopt them here:
