Our vision is that all Central Indiana animals are treated with dignity and respect and live free from cruelty, harm and neglect.
The Humane Society of Indianapolis is the leading voice for the welfare of animals and improving their quality of life. IndyHumane is the first choice in providing direct services for shelter cats and dogs, including adoption, foster home placement, behavior training, appropriate medical care, and affordable spay/neuter services. As the voice for the animals, IndyHumane brings together like-minded animal-focused individuals and groups to educate the public about animal welfare issues and concerns. For over 100 years, it's all about the animals.
We respect every animal that comes through our door as a valued life and make medically appropriate decisions in the best interest of the animals.
We recognize the strong bond between humans and animals and are compassionate in the decisions we make and actions we take that impact that relationship.
We work with other animal-focused individuals and groups to ensure that animals have a strong voice to advocate for their welfare.
We can be trusted to do what we say we will do. We tell the truth, even when it may be painful. We make decisions based on what we believe is the right thing to do for the animals, their owners and their prospective owners.

We are good stewards of the resources entrusted to us, including both financial and human resources.
WHO WE ARE
Serving Indianapolis and the surrounding counties since 1905, the Humane Society of Indianapolis provides vital services to animals and people alike through sheltering and adopting animals, providing positive reinforcement behavior training for both adoptable animals and for owned animals through our public training classes, and outreach through our community and shelter programs.
A private, nonprofit organization that receives no public or private government funding, the Humane Society of Indianapolis is supported solely by contributions, grants, bequests, investments, adoption fees and other fees for service.
Since 1905, the Humane Society of Indianapolis (IndyHumane) has provided shelter and care to animals in need on their way to loving homes. Originally started to help both animals and families in need, the Humane Society eventually switched to focus solely on animal care. In its current location at 79th and Michigan Road since the 1960's, IndyHumane's facility now spans over 32,000 square feet on 13.5 acres and has cared for over 10,000 per year.
In a caring and nurturing environment, the work of IndyHumane deepens the bond between people and their companion animals. Whether you are ready to adopt a new pet, turn over an animal to our care, participate in dog training, give your dog a run in our Pet Park or volunteer your time to help our animals, you can celebrate your love of animals at IndyHumane.
