Join the Fun
On April 29, Angus and I will be participating in the annual Mutt Strut, the largest fundraiser for the Humane Society of Indianapolis. You can join me on the day by donating on my behalf or registering to walk with me. Angus would LOVE to have his doggy friends along side him for his first ever Mutt Strut! Every dollar helps IndyHumane find homes for thousands of homeless animals each year.
My first dog Sam and I had done the Mutt Strut each year since 2007. In 2015 we were so proud to raise enough funds to be 2016's TOP DOG! Sadly, Sam passed away a few weeks before last year's Mutt Strut after a short battle with cancer. He was 13.
In October 2016, we rescued Angus. He was found as a stray by animal control. He had been on his own for a while and they had to shave 7 POUNDS of matted fur off of him. When I went to meet him he crawled into my lap and started licking my face. The rest is history! He is now home with us and spoiled every day!
This will be Angus's first ever Mutt Strut! I know he will love it as much as Sam did. In addition to the fun, Angus will be helping homeless animals just like him!

IndyHumane depends on donors like you!
Many people don't realize that IndyHumane is a private, nonprofit organization that receives no public or private government funding. The Humane Society of Indianapolis is supported solely by contributions, grants, bequests, investments, adoption fees and other fees for service. They receive no tax money, United Way funds, or regular contributions from other animal-welfare organizations such as the ASPCA, Humane Society of the United States, or Peta.
At IndyHumane, animals don’t have an expiration date - there is no predetermined time limit for how long an animal can remain on the adoption floor. We don't ever put animals down because of space, time or length of stay.
