Happy Tails

Sabrina

In August of 2011, I began volunteering as a Feline Friend at the Humane Society of Indianapolis. On my very first day, I walked into a corral and was greeted by a beautiful black cat with a little white patch on her chest. She had gorgeous green eyes and greeted me with a "meow" but had...

Jude

I just wanted to share with everyone there at HSI that IndyHumane alumnus Jude has been named the Best Dog in Chicago by Chicago Magazine! Jude went through a rigorous interview process (playing in the park with magazine editors) and won over the judges unanimously. We've always thought he was the best dog ever, but...

Dexter

We just wanted to shoot you a note and let you know how fantastic Dexter is doing. He is literally our best friend and sleeps wedged in between us every night. Since we've moved to Austin (a SUPER dog friendly town), he's made tons of new dog friends and loves to explore and swim. We...

Cheyenne

We adopted Cheyenne, a beautiful retriever/shepherd mix, and couldn’t be happier! While she still has some puppy tendencies at just a year old, she really has been remarkably well behaved – no housetraining issues, no chewing on things (other than toys of course!), and she’s been very nice to her two new beagle sisters. Apparently...

Dolly

Hello there, Dolly here! I used to be named Sugar, and came to the Humane Society with my sisters. I was adopted and taken home by my new mom, and for the past three and a half years I've been living the good life. I would have written sooner but I didn't know I could....

Bella

This is our puppy Bella whom we adopted in December. Our daughter Claire could not be happier to have her new best friend. Santa visited the Humane Society in December to pick out Bella for a special 8-year-old girl. That chubby, tiny puppy has become a lean and feisty hunting dog… or so she thinks....

Gidget and Gizmo

A big furry hello from the home of Gidget and Gizmo (formerly Merry and Frodo)! My family and I came to the Indianapolis Humane Society to fill a void in our hearts after losing our 19-year old cat Bonkers who I had adopted from the Humane Society all those years ago. We saw Gidget (Merry)...

Thunder

Six months ago, I lost my best friend Sparky to cancer. I was devastated and hesitant to adopt again. However, after some convincing, I realized that there was no better way to honor his memory than to give another homeless dog a chance to have the same wonderful life as I had given Sparky. I...

Hogan Beauregard Byrne here (formerly Goose)

Hello and Happy New Year! Hogan Beauregard Byrne here (formerly Goose)!  They call me Hogey Bogey for short.  As far as my new name, Mom says I am named after one of the great golfers of all time – Ben Hogan — and she chose Beauregard so she could shorten it to Bogey (which is...

Dexter (Blue Bear)

Sorry it took a while to get back with you. Tess and I are so busy with work and school, and of course Dexter (formally Blue Bear lol). Where to begin… Today marks three months of having Dexter and to be honest, it feels like we have had him forever. We couldn't imagine not having...
