The Humane Society of Indianapolis (IndyHumane) provides direct services for cats and dogs, including adoption, foster homes, behavior support, medical care, and affordable spay/neuter and vaccine services. In a typical year, they provide veterinary services to 10,500 animals, find loving homes for 3,800 homeless pets, and achieve a live release rate of 96%. They are proud to have served Indianapolis since 1905.
IndyHumane’s Senior Care program was launched in 2017 with the support of The Grey Muzzle Organization and expanded with Grey Muzzle’s support in 2021. The goal of the Senior Care program is to increase positive outcomes for senior dogs in central Indiana by taking in those most at risk in the Indianapolis municipal shelter and other central Indiana shelters, dogs like eight-year-old Zelda. To date, the program has helped rescue and adopt out more than 570 senior dogs. A 2022 grant from Grey Muzzle will help the program serve at least 123 senior dogs with approximately 25 served directly through grant funds.
