IndyHumane seeking foster parents



Indianapolis, Indiana – The IndyHumane foster program might help you if you’re thinking about getting a pet and aren’t sure if you’re ready.

IndyHumane is seeking your help to give a number of animals a break from the shelter.

According to the shelter, some of the puppies, kittens, and larger dogs have been there for more than a year and a break from their kennel will help make them less stressed and happier when they return.

Foster parents are required to complete online training, and once completed, the foster program will provide various needs for the animal such as food, medications, and supplies.

IndyHumane has a high need for caretakers interested in large breed dogs with potential behavioral challenges and neonatal kittens under 8 weeks old.

“Giving these dogs a home to stay in, even temporarily, provides huge benefits to the animal,” says IndyHumane’s foster care manager, Anna Knabe. “When our dogs come back from staying with a foster family they are usually calmer, happier, and less stressed. If you had to spend many months in a shelter, you would want a break too.”
