rescue relief & pet food pantry
Rescue Relief is an IndyHumane program that rescues slightly damaged bags of food and pet supplies from local pet supply warehouses and then redistributes them to 143+ rescues and shelters across Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Kentucky. Rescues pays a small fee for supplies, to assist in covering the costs of the program. This allows rescues, community organizations, and shelters to reallocate funds to cover the costs of surgeries and medicines, instead of food, which is increasing quality of care and the number of animals that receive a second chance. In 2019, more than 240,000 pounds of food and supplies were rescued from the landfill and distributed to other rescues and shelters.
