How $25,000 from HomeAgain Helps Would Aid this Shelter
The Humane Society of Indianapolis operates a mobile vaccine clinic to reach pet owners who cannot travel to its low-cost vaccine clinics. The Grand Prize would go toward acquiring a second unit and the staffing and technology needed to run it. Funds would also be used to further improve education and outreach programs.
The Humane Society of Indianapolis takes care of roughly 400 animals everyday and are committed to every single one.
