oh hello. how are you?



Lakeshore PAWS is dedicated to finding loving homes for abandoned and unwanted pets in Northwest Indiana–one animal at a time–because we believe they deserve it.


Lakeshore PAWS is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization in Northwest Indiana. The effort was established by two business women and animal lovers who simply could not ignore the growing number of animals without homes.


Lakeshore PAWS envisions a culture of compassion and partnership in Northwest Indiana that will one day ensure that every pet born has a stable home and care throughout its natural life.


Compassion – Treating each animal with the kindness it deserves.
Community – Creating partnerships for a better world for pets in Northwest Indiana.
Results – Acting to ensure that every pet receives a second chance at a forever home.
Advocacy – Working as a voice for every animal in despair.
