INDIANAPOLIS  – Indianapolis Animal Care Services is out of space and needs help finding forever homes for some of the animals in its care.

IACS is offering $5 adoptions through the end of this month as it tries to “clear the shelter” and relieve some of the overcrowding. 

Adoptions include vaccinations (except for rabies), spay or neuter surgery, a microchip, and a heartworm test.

The agency has taken in more than 11,000 animals this year and has a live release rate of 90-percent — one of its highest rates ever.

“We are asking our community partners near and far to embrace Indianapolis’s city shelter, and give our animals the voice they deserve,” said Deputy Director, Katie Trennepohl. “Every animal adopted, fostered, or rescued equals two lives saved: the ones leaving the shelter and the ones coming into the shelter, hoping for a second chance.”
