The Humane Society of Indianapolis does not provide emergency veterinary care to the general public. If your pet cat or dog is in need of urgent help, please refer to the animal hospitals page.
Life with your dog should be fun for both you and your dog. If you have problems with your dog that cause you stress, then we want to help. If you just want a better relationship with your dog, then training will give you that. We believe that dog training should also be fun and exciting. If you have tried other training methods and you now think your dog is "stubborn" or "he will do it, if he wants to" then we invite you to visit one of our classes. We make the classes fun not only for you, but for the dog so he wants to learn and interact with you. We offer both group classes and individual training. If you just have one problem that bothers you such as jumping up, then consider a private class. If you want a better relationship with your dog, then look at our group classes. And don't forget your puppy, we offer a fun and interactive puppy class. New classes start monthly.
In addition to giving initial vaccinations to all adoptable cats and dogs and as part of our mission to improve animals’ quality of life, the Humane Society of Indianapolis offers low-cost vaccinations for pet cats and dogs at our 7929 N. Michigan Rd. shelter.
Nearly 10,000 unwanted dogs and cats were put down in Indianapolis in 2010. With your support, we'll put an end to unnecessary euthanasia in Indy once and for all.
Central Indiana’s first dog park is on the campus of the Humane Society of Indianapolis. The park is a place for owners to hang out with their pets in a safe, fenced area.
No matter how responsible you are or how well-behaved your pet is, it is possible that one day they may become lost or stolen. Collars can fall off and tattoos can be removed, but pet microchip identification is a permanent way to ensure that if your pet goes missing, the authorities can trace the ownership of the animal back to you.
Check below to see if your lost pet is currently at the Humane Society of Indianapolis or with a Good Samaritan who reported the found pet to us; pets reported to us as lost are also shown at the bottom of the page.
The Humane Society of Indianapolis offers dog and cat euthanasia services to the community by appointment for pets who are suffering and terminally ill.
