Pet Loss Support Group
February 7th, 2017
Join us to share memories about your pet with pet lovers who have had similar experiences.
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!
