INDIANAPOLIS — If you’re ready to turn your house into a forever home, Indy Animal Care Services has some cats and dogs that would love to meet you!

Indy ACS is overwhelmed with the number of cats and dogs in its care and has over 170 animals available for adoption.

IACS took in 33 animals on Wednesday, according to a Facebook post, but only found homes for 17 animals. There are crates set up in the hallways to house some of the animals — something the shelter hopes is temporary but could become permanent if no one is able to adopt or foster.

“Adoption and fostering (are) definitely the two biggest ways to help us because it gets animals out of the building. But, if you’re not able to open your home to a new friend, you can always volunteer,” Roxie Randall, IACS outreach coordinator, told Pet Pals TV.

Randall said that a lot of the animals that have been coming in lately are strays.

“With the warm weather, that’s not really surprising,” Randall said. “People are maybe having more get-togethers or spending more time in their yards. They might be accidentally leaving a gate open or a dog or cat is darting out the door.”

Indy ACS is open for adoption Thursday until 6:30 p.m. and an outdoor adoption event will be held Saturday from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m.

All adoptions at IACS are free.
