Why does your fundraising matter?
Your fundraising matters because you are saving lives! Every year, thousands of animals are homeless in Central Indiana and you’re doing your part to help save these animals' lives.
In 2015, IndyHumane helped 3,043 find their forever homes, and each of these animals are given an average of $700 in care. All animals are given a thorough medical exam, spayed or neutered as necessary, microchipped, and temperament-tested to make sure they are physically and mentally ready to be adopted. We are the only shelter in the state with a fully staffed medical team and surgery suite, allowing us to care for animals that come to our shelter, as well as animals who need help from other shelters and rescue groups. We believe every animal’s life is worth saving, and any funds that you raise DO make a difference!
We receive no tax dollars from our local or state governments, nor do we receive regular contributions from national organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States. Your fundraising is so important to us! We are so appreciative that you’re involved – and our animals are, too!
