The mission of Humane Indiana (HI) is protecting pets, preserving wildlife, and supporting a nurturing connection between animals and people. HI is the largest and longest-running animal well-being organization in Northwest Indiana. They provide lifesaving care reaching 15,000 injured, orphaned, or homeless animals annually. HI’s programs include shelter and adoption, the Estelle Marcus Veterinary Clinic serving low-income people and communities, pet retention programs, shelter transfer partnerships, a pet food pantry, spay and neuter services, trap/neuter/restore program for community cats, behavioral training, pet foster care, domestic violence pet partnerships, and a wildlife rehabilitation and education center.
Support from The Grey Muzzle Organization will allow Humane Indiana (HI) to reduce owner surrenders by providing essential veterinary care, including medicine, vaccinations, and testing, to senior dogs like seven-year-old Jake, whose owners could not otherwise afford it. Jake’s family relies on government assistance and, without HI, would struggle to provide Jake with the veterinary care he needs to stay healthy and happy.
