Who are we?

With the largest selection of animals and lowest adoption fees in the Greater Indianapolis area, Indianapolis Animal Care Services is the perfect place to find your next best friend. With our knowledgeable staff ready to answer all your questions, you will leave with the right pet for the environment you have to provide.

Our adoption fee is $60 for dogs, puppies, cats, or kittens. The adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations (except rabies), a microchip, and a preventive flea-treatment application. Many animals at the shelter are ready to go home the same day you pick them out!

To meet the wonderful animals available for adoption, please visit us at 2600 South Harding Street.

About Us

In addition to offering hundreds of animals for adoption daily, Indianapolis Animal Care Services oversees the enforcement of animal-related laws in Marion County. Preventing dog fighting, investigating abandoned animals, those not receiving proper care and dangerous and/or barking animals are just a few of the responsibilities of the agency.
