Construction continues, and we're in the final push to open the Center's Albert G. and Sara I. Reuben Vaccination Clinic.
More about the Center: In November of 2011, IndyHumane announced that the Humane Society of Indianapolis Animal Welfare Center will open at 456 Holmes Ave, Indianapolis. The new facility is scheduled to open in August of 2012 and will be home to a second low-cost vaccine clinic.
The long-awaited Animal Welfare Center will be located in the Haughville neighborhood, which was identified as one of the areas most in need of animal welfare services. The center will house the Albert G. and Sara I. Reuben Vaccination Clinic, offering low cost cat and dog vaccines.
The center will also provide pet-care resources and assistance with feral cats, pit bulls and chained dogs via the efforts of the IndyHumane Outreach/Education Coordinator and our partner groups: Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana and Indy Pit Crew. The center will be one of the first of its kind in the nation to provide animal welfare partner groups with phone lines, a physical address, and a presence in the city’s target neighborhoods.
“In our community, 10,000 dogs and cats are euthanized each year,” said Kirsten VantWoud, who is currently director of shelter operations at the North Michigan Road location and who will lead operations at the IndyHumane Animal Welfare Center. “That number is substantially down from previous years thanks to the diligence of many dedicated groups. What is unchanged is the18,000 animals brought in each year to Indianapolis Animal Care and Control. Nearly 75% of these animals come from only 10 zip codes. Our Center is in the heart of one of those zip codes.”

Cat Adoption Special
May 20th, 2013
IndyHumane will be running a Memorial Day week special on cat adoptions. Select cats will have a $19.99 adoption fee for one week only – Monday, May 20 through Sunday, May 26 (the shelter is closed to the public on Thursday). IndyHumane adoption fees for cats are typically $75.00.
There are over 30 cats who will have this special, $19.99 adoption fee this week. Ages range, but the cats featured in the special are 8 months and over. Potential adopters will need to plan to place a hold on an available cat and return the following day to complete the adoption process. Adopters will also need to plan to go through IndyHumane’s typical adoption process, which includes filling out an application and discussing the animal’s history and behavior with an adoption counselor in order to ensure that each animal adopted will be matched with the most compatible family.
