INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) Indianapolis Animal Care Services is hoping people will stop by the shelter to “give love” and adopt a four-legged friend during the month of February.

Through the end of the month, the shelter is waiving adoption fees for families looking to bring a pet home while also accepting cash donations to help its Friends of Indianapolis Animal Care Services Foundation. Organizers say they hope the move inspires people to open their hearts and homes to a dog or cat searching for their forever home.

“Now is a really good time,” IACS manager of Community Outreach, Roxie Randall, said. “It’s cold out, you’re not really going too many places because of the current climates and everything, this is the perfect time to bring a new pet into your family. You can get to know them, develop a really deep bond, get to know them super well.”
