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. 
 
Aleshire also led the development and launch of the Albert G. & Sara I. Reuben Low-Cost Vaccination Clinic on the campus at 7929 N. Michigan Road and oversaw expansion of both canine and feline behavior programs and enrichment efforts.
 
“I’m very grateful that I had the opportunity to serve our pets, our community, and my IndyHumane family,” said Aleshire. “I will continue to be a voice and advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, and I leave the organization with so many memories that I will truly cherish forever.” 
 
Aleshire will remain at IndyHumane through September 30, 2017. A coordinated search for his successor will begin in early 2017.
 
“We are grateful for John’s visionary leadership,” said IndyHumane’s Chairman of the Board, Michael Stewart. “IndyHumane has never been in a stronger position to meet the needs of the community, and my fellow board members and I are thankful for John’s unique creativity and dedication to the mission.”
 
Over the course of the next year, IndyHumane’s board of directors and senior management team will be working closely together in order to seek out IndyHumane’s next CEO.
 
“We have big shoes to fill,” said Stewart. “We will be working hard to ensure John’s successor is prepared to continue the bold and innovative programs that have made IndyHumane the stellar organization it is today.”
