Want to Help GOTGM?

There are tons of ways that you can help the Guardians of the Green Mile continue to be successful in our mission to save lives! Click below to Volunteer or continue reading below to learn about more ways to help!


How can I adopt one of your dogs?

If you are interested in adopting one of our rescue babies, please visit the Adopt page for more information.

Is there a way to donate to GOTGM?

The largest expense that the Guardians have on a monthly basis is our vet bill. We fully vet each dog we rescue, regardless of their health at the time of rescue, as well as all puppies delivered while in our care. This includes their shots as well as spay and neutering. We make sure each dog is healthy before making them adoptable.

Donations can be made via the following methods:

  1. Click on the DONATE TODAY link below and your donation is made securely through Network For Good.
  2. Donate directly to our veterinarian: McAfee Animal Hospital – 651 Eastport Centre Dr., Valparaiso, IN 46385 (219) 462-5901 (Tell them you’d like your donation to be made to the Guardians of the Green Mile account).
  3. Mail your donation to us at P.O. Box 182 Portage, IN 46368
Are there places I can shop that support GOTGM?


We have partnered with several organizations as another way to fund what we do! Check out our partner’s information below to learn more.

Max & Neo

When you make a purchase on Max & Neo, use our code 𝗴𝘂𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗼𝗳𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗻𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗲𝟭𝟬. When using this code, we receive 10% of your purchase price as store credit. With these funds, we can purchase much needed supplies.

Or use our affiliate link:


WoofTrax is the free mobile app that lets you earn donations for your organization every time you walk your dog.

In 2022 WoofTrax donated and helped animal charities earn over $175,000. In January 2023 they sent donations to over 1,300 animal charities. The more pet parents in our community walking with WoofTrax the more donations they can send us!

Pet Friendly Service – Spay & Neuter

Do you want to live in a state where EVERY animal finds a loving home? We can, and we will, with the Pet Friendly License plate!

When you choose the Pet Friendly Plate, you’re helping over 300 rescues and shelters statewide get free spay/neuter surgeries for cats and dogs. This addresses the root cause of pet overpopulation and saves adoptable animals from euthanasia. Together, we can make Indiana a zero kill state!

Does GOTGM have merch or gear I can purchase?


Not only will you be showing your support by wearing some of our GOTGM Gear, a portion of each sale goes right to us. Check out the line of products currently on sale and come back often for any new listings.

Can I host a fundraising event?

Do you have a product or work for a company that does fundraising? We are always looking for new ways and products to offer for fundraising! Send us more information by using the Contact Us page.

Can I donate products to GOTGM?


We like to have raffles at all of our events as a way to raise money to help pay the expenses that arise. Do you sell or make a specific product that you’d be willing to donate? If so contact us! We would love to have your product as one of our raffle items!

Can I volunteer?


We can always use a few extra hands at our events! Check out the link below for more information on how you can volunteer today.

Are you on social media?

Yes we are!

You can connect with us on Facebook and help share about our dogs in need! Even if you aren’t able to adopt or foster, someone you know might be!
