Join the Fun
On October 23rd, Bruno, Gus, 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. Bruno and Gus would love to see all his doggie friends come out to support IndyHumane! Every dollar helps IndyHumane find homes for thousands of homeless animals each year.
I adopted Bruno in September 2013 as a puppy, his little white chest stripe reminded me of one of my childhood labs that passed away while I was in college and I just knew it was meant to be.
Gus is an IndyHumane alumni and was adopted in June 2020. I fostered him and his littermate as puppies for about a month from May-June 2020 and when it was time to go to their furever families I realized that Gus was already there. Luckily his littermate went to good friends so we are able to have playdates with his brother Kaizer.

About the Humane Society of Indianapolis
Founded in 1905, the Humane Society of Indianapolis cares for dogs and cats on the path to finding a loving, lifetime home. All animals are spayed/neutered and microchipped before being placed on the adoption floor. Visit www.indyhumane.org for more information.
How your donation helps
$10 – Microchip one animal
$25 – Provide adoption counseling to successfully match an animal with a family
$60 – Spay/neuter one animal
$100 – Provide dental cleaning and polishing for one animal
$250 – Fund blood work and urinalysis for an older dog or cat
$500 – Pay to x-ray and splint an animal’s broken leg
$2,000 – Feed all animals in the shelter for one month
IndyHumane invests around $800 into each animal that comes into the shelter which means 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
