Service Projects

We receive many requests from groups who would like to perform a few hours of volunteer service as part of a class requirement or club service project. There are a number of ways you can assist the animals and staff at the Humane Society of Indianapolis. A few projects are available at the shelter that do not involve direct contact with the animals, and are only available on an as-needed basis.

We can work with Boy Scouts earning their Eagle Award and Girl Scouts earning their Gold Award to design a project that fits their requirements.

Service Project Suggestions

If we cannot schedule an activity at the shelter, here are additional ways that you can help outside of the shelter:

  • Organize a supply drive - request a copy of our wish list and organize your own drive to collect toys, towels, food and much more in your own community. Create a marked container and place it in a high-traffic area for people to see.
  • Organize a fundraiser - hold a bake sale, car wash or carnival and collect donations for the Humane Society of Indianapolis. Distribute information about the shelter at your event to help educate the public.
  • Organize an animal awareness week - a school or community-wide animal awareness week will help get the message of kindness to animals heard. Visit the Humane Society of Indianapolis ahead of time to gather materials to hand out.
  • Get the community involved - ask local businesses to spread the word about caring for animals. Organize a dog wash in your community and ask for donations or sponsorship.
  • Give out information - man a table at school or in front of the supermarket. Ask the community to support responsible pet ownership and consider a donation of change or supplies to help the animals. Distribute information about the wonderful animals available for adoption at local shelters.
  • Volunteer - volunteer your time at a local animal organization. We - and others - can use the help!
