Our dream has come true. We have now moved into our state-of-the-art facility spanning 40,000 sq. ft. at our new location in Fishers. It is the moment we’ve been praying for all these years. Finally, the animals will have the quality of life they deserve as they wait for homes, and the people who care for them will have the resources to provide it.
Dogs now have areas to exercise…and cats now have indoor catios with ample sunlight and fresh air. An Education Center allows us to expand our community outreach programs and safely offer youth volunteer opportunities. A Medical Center gives us a place to treat hundreds of injured and seriously ill animals who arrive each year. We’ve built a brighter future for not just Hamilton County’s animals, but also thousands of Hoosier animals at risk for euthanasia in other Indiana shelters.
Our excitement of realizing a decade long dream was greatly impacted by COVID. However, we were able to persevere and the construction of our new facility continued. COVID did have a significant impact on our fundraising events and many other initiatives in 2020 but we fought hard and got to the finish line. Loyal supporters like you helped us weather the storm.
As one of the only open admission, truly no-kill shelters in the country, you have our commitment to do whatever it takes to give every animal the chance to live, love, and be loved. But we are going to need your support more than ever before as we transition into our new home while still navigating these unprecedented times.
Whether it’s purchasing an engraved brick to be included in the Memorial Plaza of the new facility, or an automatic, monthly donation to help fund daily animal care, every dollar you donate saves lives.
On behalf of our team and the animals who are counting on us, we thank you for all your support through these difficult times and wish you all good health and a bounty of unconditional, four (or three) legged love.
The Memorial Plaza in our new facility offers a beautiful canvas for you to honor the life of someone special with an engraved brick. Small and large bricks are available but less than 25 large bricks remain.
Plaques for Cat Condos & Kennels
Quality-engraved, naming plaques may also be purchased for individual cat condos, multiple cat condos, and dog kennels throughout the facility. These are life-long naming opportunities to your legacy will forever be a part of ours.
Other Naming Opportunities
Even though our building is complete, additional opportunities will become available including benches and other outdoor areas. And, there are still two major opportunities left for those interested in an even more impactful legacy gift.
Protect Their Future
While we raised the funds to build our new facility, we still need to establish a critically needed, operating endowment to protect the future. The 2021 fundraising goal is $2M…and we’re just getting started. Note, there is a naming opportunity for the first individual to make a lead gift!
