We’ve reached the limit of the number of animals we can care for with our current financial and staffing resources. Will you be an angel and help us care for more than 500 kittens, puppies and mature cats and dogs?
It’s easy for you to help!
- Lend your financial support: sponsor an animal’s care, donate online or call the Humane Society of Indianapolis at 317.872.5650 x125.
- Donate items from our animals’ Wish List.
- Use the Low-Cost Vaccine Clinic at our shelter.
- Have $5? Vote for the cutest dog in the Mutt Strut Poster Pooch Contest!
And don’t forget: until Friday, July 9th, you can adopt any dog or cat 4 years and up for just $17.76.
The Humane Society of Indianapolis has a balanced budget for 2010 that allows us to care for 300 animals at any given time. Due to the dramatic increase in the number of homeless and unwanted animals in the Indianapolis area in recent months, though, we’re currently caring for 550 cats and dogs.
Our Indy-based and independent shelter does not euthanize for space or time. IndyHumane currently has 150 cats and dogs available for adoption, with a total of 400 living at the 7929 N. Michigan Road facility and 150 more in foster homes. Though IndyHumane invests, on average, $600 in medical, behavioral and shelter services per animal, regular adoption fees remain low: as low as $35 for some cats, and $150 at the highest, for puppies.
