Animal Care Services conducts Late Night Adopt A-Thon


INDIANAPOLIS. (WISH) — Indianapolis Animal Care Services had its Late Night Adopt-A-Thon on Friday night in the hopes of freeing up more kennel space.

“We typically see an influx of animals coming to the shelter during colder weather,” said Katie Trennepohl, deputy director of Animal Care Services, prior to the event. “By staying open later on Friday, we are hoping that more people will be able to come to the shelter to meet all of our wonderful animals looking for a new home.”

The Late Night Adopt-A-Thon went from 6-10 p.m. at Animal Care Services, 2600 S. Harding St.

All adoptions were free. The first 25 dogs and 10 cats adopted during the event were to go home with a special adoption kit.

The event included kids’ activities and a kissing booth to get your picture taken with your new pet. The Bacon Station food truck was on hand serving up some of their menu items, including vegetarian options.

To allow staff to focus on adoptions during this event, lost-pet tours and “return-to-owners” were not available, and Animal Intake closed early.

News 8’s Jenny Dreasler took pictures of the animals at the event and posted them to her Facebook page and Twitter.
