Serving Indianapolis and the surrounding counties since 1905, the Humane Society of Indianapolis provides vital services to animals and people alike through sheltering and adopting animals, providing positive reinforcement behavior training for both adoptable animals and for owned animals through our public training classes, and outreach through our community and shelter programs.

A private, nonprofit organization that receives no public or private government funding, the Humane Society of Indianapolis is supported solely by contributions, grants, bequests, investments, adoption fees and other fees for service.


Our vision is that all central Indiana animals are treated with dignity and respect and live free from cruelty, harm and neglect.


The Humane Society of Indianapolis is the leading voice for the welfare of animals and improving their quality of life. HSI is the first choice in providing direct services for shelter cats and dogs, including adoption, foster home placement, behavior training, appropriate medical care, and affordable spay/neuter services. As the voice for the animals, HSI brings together like-minded animal-focused individuals and groups to educate the public about animal welfare issues and concerns. For over 100 years, itís all about the animals.



Since 1905, the Humane Society of Indianapolis (HSI) has provided shelter and care to animals in need on their way to loving homes. Originally started to help both animals and families in need, the Humane Society eventually switched to focus solely on animal care. In its current location at 79th and Michigan Road since the 1960's, HSI's facility now spans over 32,000 square feet on 13.5 acres.

In a caring and nurturing environment, the work of HSI deepens the bond between people and their companion animals. Whether you are ready to adopt a new pet, turn over an animal to our care, participate in canine obedience training, give your dog a run in our Pet Park or volunteer your time to help our animals, you can celebrate your love of animals at HSI.
