Construction at IndyHumane, Adjusted Adoption Hours

October 19th, 2016

IndyHumane is undergoing construction! A generous donor has provided the funding to have new flooring installed in our lobby and main hallways. We will also be having these areas painted. The work will begin on Monday, October 24, and will take place over the course of two weeks. Because of this, we will have to adjust our adoption hours for those weeks. Additionally, all adoptions during the construction time period will take place in either our Canine Training School or our Pet Adoption Wagon, both located on our Michigan Road campus.

IndyHumane CEO John Aleshire to Retire

September 28th, 2016

John Aleshire, the Chief Executive Officer of the Humane Society of Indianapolis, is retiring after leading the organization for eight years.  
Over the course of Aleshire’s eight-year tenure with IndyHumane, he stabilized the mission and operations of the shelter. Shortly after Aleshire was hired in September of 2008, he led management and board efforts to free the organization from financial insolvency and, in 2014, IndyHumane announced that the organization had eliminated all debt. 
Aleshire collaborated with animal welfare groups across Indiana in order to create targeted efforts focused on animal overpopulation. Additionally, Aleshire worked to launch the IndyHumane Animal Welfare Center and began two mobile services - one for low-cost vaccines, the other for adoptions – expanding the organization’s footprint in Central Indiana and saving even more lives along the way.

Mutt Strut 2017 returns to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

September 2nd, 2016

The Humane Society of Indianapolis is excited to announce the return of Mutt Strut to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. On Saturday, April 29, 2017, thousands of people and their furry friends will hit the track to walk for the animals. 2017 will mark IndyHumane’s 14th annual Mutt Strut.

This event is the largest annual fundraiser for the Humane Society of Indianapolis. Money raised will help the non-profit organization fulfill its vision of ensuring that Central Indiana animals are treated with dignity and respect and live free from cruelty, harm, and neglect. Each year, the organization cares for more than 5,000 animals. Fundraising events like Mutt Strut are vital to IndyHumane, as the organization receives no government funding or funds from national organizations like the Humane Society of the United States.
