Our Purpose

Indianapolis animals need
our help.

Each year, more than 15,000 homeless animals arrive at the Indianapolis Animal Care Services city shelter. Unfortunately, its municipal budget falls far short of meeting this growing problem. That’s where Friends of Indy Animals comes in: We raise funds to help IACS save animal lives.

Our Future


The staff of Indianapolis Animal Care Services works hard to save and protect animals. But the limitations of the current shelter, which is outdated and undersized, curtails their efforts. The good news? Plans for a brand-new shelter are in the works—and you can help make it a reality.
