Pet Food Pantry:
Our June pet food pantry scheduled Saturday, June 6, from 8:00-4:00 will again be a drive-thru format. This is for all clients, including community cat caretakers. It will run from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm and will again be a drive-thru format. Clients should attend the same time interval they were given for April and May. If they are unaware of the time interval or unable to make it during that time, they can come any time between 8-4. New clients are welcome. We ask a $2 fee if clients are able to provide it.
Clients will not have to leave their cars and do not need to bring their empty buckets. We will offer dry dog and cat food, which will be pre-bagged and ready to toss into vehicles. Flea preventative will be available for $2 a dose (limit 5) and cat litter will be available depending on supply.
The Indiana House Rabbit Society will also have rabbit supplies ready for clients as usual.
Warehouse Open Hours:
We are currently only offering warehouse open hours on Wednesdays from 3:00-6:00 pm for clients to receive various needed supplies. Our Sunday hours are temporarily discontinued. Clients will not enter the warehouse. We will gather/share information via our Ring doorbell and bring any supplies needed to clients in their cars.
We ask that anyone with a personal supply donation hold off bringing items (aside from food) for the time being. We will gladly accept supplies donations after stay at home orders are lifted.
We are plan to resume scheduling spay/neuter surgeries at FACE Low-Cost Animal Clinic in June at a limited capacity as they begin to open back up and schedule clients. We also hope to begin scheduling additional surgeries through IndyHumane downtown clinic.
We are hoping to resume our fence projects in June using social distancing and additional safety protocols. We have an extensive wait list, but we are planning to ramp up our program in order to meet the high demand.
We will not be doing any proactive alley outreach for the time being. If citizens call us with an urgent need, we will do our best to help them. Also, we will assist Indianapolis Animal Care Services officers with dog neglect cases, as needed. The good news is that IACS is caught up on their runs for now and there are very few neglect calls coming in. One little bright spot in all of this.
