signature events

IndyHumane hosts or helps with dozens of events every year, and each one is special to us. A couple times a year, though, we pull out all the stops to put the fun in fundraiser and throw a big party for the animals.

Mutt Strut

The Greatest Spectacle in Dog Walking is IndyHumane’s biggest fundraiser and takes place at one of the world’s most famous venues: The hallowed home of the Indianapolis 500. Each year, more than 7,000 people and their pets cross the Yard of Bricks at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in support of homeless pets.

Young Professionals
The Indy PAAW Coalition

indy PAAW

The Indianapolis Professionals Advocating for Animal Welfare Coalition – or Indy PAAW for short – is IndyHumane’s young professional’s affinity group. Since forming in 2013, Indy PAAW has helped shape and promote IndyHumane’s events, provided critical feedback for services and programs, and raised more than $30,000 for homeless pets in Central Indiana.

The Coalition’s strategic goals are…

  • Introduce young professionals to IndyHumane’s mission and programs, to
  • Inspire action and generosity among colleagues, and
  • Provide an opportunity for up-and-coming professionals to network with a shared passion for making Indianapolis an even more humane city

The group and most of its events are open to all ages, but experiences are tailored to friends of IndyHumane ages 21-40.

Membership Info
Indy PAAW is membership driven, and membership begins at $10/month or $120/year. More information is available here. Got questions? Contact indypaaw@indyhumane.org!
