Gretal and pups on Pet Pals TV: You can foster too!

March 1st, 2011

Gretal, a German Shepherd Dog, and her puppies show off the benefits  of foster care.

Gretal and her three pups were brought to IndyHumane by a good Samaritan. Through the Nonie Krauss Foster Care Program, Gretal and her pups were given a temporary home where they could nurse peacefully.

Fostering is a great way to get involved at IndyHumane. Opening your home to an animal in need provides a much-needed break from the kennel environment. Fostering is not only beneficial to the animal, it is rewarding to the families involved as well.

Most recently, Gretal and her pups made their TV debut on Pet Pals TV for a segment highlighting their story and their foster family. IndyHumane thanks Pet Pals TV for featuring Gretal and her amazing foster family.

Remembering Larry Reuben

September 16th, 2015

We are deeply saddened at the loss of our friend, attorney, and community activist Lawrence M. Reuben. Larry was a giant in philanthropy and a transformational figure for all the organizations he touched. He didn't just give money; he truly cared about the impact of his investments and honoring the legacy of his parents, Albert and Sara Reuben. Beyond his philanthropy, he remained passionate and involved in the work of our organizations. He was the first one to send an email or make a congratulatory phone call when there was news of a success, and he spared no criticism of something with which he disagreed. He was someone we could count on, to show up at events, to offer ideas and assistance, to heap on the praise when it was deserved, and to continue to fertilize the seeds he had planted in organizations whose work makes life better for all people in Indiana.
