By giving this gift, you’re making a direct and lasting impact on the lives of Indy’s most vulnerable animals: the abandoned, abused, neglected, overlooked, and under-loved.

Nearly 9,000 animals find themselves at Indianapolis Animal Care Services (IACS) every year. Thank you for giving them a second chance.

Your gift to Friends funds medical emergencies, free training classes, programs that give dogs a break from the shelter which improves adoption chances. We fund IndyCARES, community cat programs, and kennel enrichment.

We are also partnering with the City of Indianapolis to build a new, state of the art animal welfare center through our Journey Home capital campaign.

Choose how you would like to make an impact:
