IndyHumane will be opening its clinic doors, formerly known as the IndyHumane Animal Welfare Center, as the newly-branded “IndyHumane Downtown Clinic” on Oct. 28, 2019. The animal welfare organization received a grant in July from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust and utilized the grant for spay/neuter operational support and a re-brand of the clinic. The IndyHumane Downtown Clinic is located in the 46222 neighborhood, which was identified as one of the areas most in need of animal welfare services.
The clinic does not house animals for adoption, accept animals for owner surrender, or take in strays. The services provided at the IndyHumane Downtown Clinic are focused on creating a more humane and safer city through targeted, low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination efforts as well as low-cost pet care and supplies. Grants are used to help support medical needs of hundreds of animals through low-cost spay or neuter services, vaccinations and life-saving surgeries. IndyHumane’s two locations serve approximately 10,000 animals annually. The Michigan Road location is the only shelter in the state with a fully staffed medical team and surgery suite, allowing the nonprofit organization to care for animals that come to the shelter, as well as animals that need help from other shelters and rescue groups.
