kennel sponsorship

Adopting a kennel, cage, or corral at the Humane Society of Indianapolis is a simple way to show your support for the animals in our care all year long!

Beginning at $1,500, kennel sponsorships help to offset the direct expenses for a homeless pet to remain in our care: Food to fill their bellies, medical supplies to heal them and keep them healthy, and cleaning supplies to prevent illness and disease.

Kennel sponsors have a custom plaque hung on either a dog or cat kennel (sponsor’s choice) that will stay up for 12 months, or as long as the sponsorship is renewed. Sponsors will also receive semi-annual reports of special cats and dogs we’ve cared for and will be given recognition on this page for their generosity.

Helping Each Animal Live (HEAL) Program

For some animals, the road home is long and difficult. Some are injured or ill. Some are anxious or fearful. All of them deserve another chance at health and happiness.

The IndyHumane medical and behavioral teams meet pain and fear daily with love and compassion, helping each animal on a case-by-case basis.

Elayna is an alumna of the Heal program. When we first met Elayna, she had multiple lacerations and bite wounds on her face and front legs. She was terrified and in pain.

The medical team provided bandages, pain medication, antibiotics, and time.

The behavior team provided Elayna with a safe place to heal where she learned that she didn’t need to fear, and time.

And then… Elayna found a family. She now lives in a home where pain and fear are far from her mind.
