Thank you to all our wonderful supporters, volunteers, and donators over the last several months.  Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not been able to hold adoption and other normal events.... but so many of you have been behind us to make sure our fur-babies are well cared for and we truly appreciate it.  If you would like to help ARS during this uncertain time, please find below a link to our PayPal account.  Any amount greatly helps our cause!

Thank you,
Animal Rescue Squad

Fosters Wanted
We are looking for loving fosters to give some adult cats the extra time and love they need. These babies have had the world treat them badly and need someone to show them we aren't so bad.  You supply the time, home and love and we supply the food, treats and litter.
Please email us at for more information and details.


Please consider helping us by donating to our group.  Thank you! Find or share us on Facebook.

Animal Rescue Squad, Inc. is a non-profit (501c3) corporation established in 2007 by founder, L. Cardoza.  We rescue and take in stray, abandoned and pregnant cats in Northwest Indiana and adjacent Illinois areas.  Our staff consists of hard-working volunteers and our  are completely funded by private donations.  All proceeds go directly for the care of the animals. 

All cats are rescued using humane methods.  If possible, our volunteers will catch the animal by hand.  If that is unsuccessful, we will use a humane trap.  The animals are then taken to a veterinarian for a physical exam and all required vaccinations.  They receive any medical treatment necessary and are spayed/neutered, then placed in the home of a foster volunteer.  After the animal has a clean bill of health and is properly socialized, they are ready to be put up for adoption to their forever home.
