Animal Shelter Appreciation Week: Show the animals you care!

Mayor Ballard proclaims Animal Shelter Appreciation Week in Indianapolis along with leaders from Indiana's two largest shelters Mayor Greg Ballard visited the Humane Society of Indianapolis on Thursday, October 29, and proclaimed November 1 – 7 Animal Shelter Appreciation Week in Indianapolis. Marion County’s (and Indiana’s) two largest animal shelters, the Humane Society of Indianapolis and Indianapolis Animal Care and Control, along with smaller area shelters, care for tens of thousands of homeless animals every year.

Animal Shelter Appreciation Week in Indianapolis recognizes the importance of shelters working to promote the invaluable role they play in our communities and to increase public awareness of animal welfare issues, shelter services, and public safety. Mayor Ballard is pictured with IACC’s Amber Myers and Teri Kendrick, and HSI’s John Aleshire.
