Indianapolis, like most major cities, has a problem. We have too many homeless animals. Each year, thousands are euthanized at municipal animal shelters across central Indiana. Rescue groups do all they can to pull animals from these shelters but they are very limited on space and resources. Frankly, we’re all pretty tired of the killing. We know that shelters have the reputation for being sad places and that keeps people like you from visiting. This is where the IndyMega AdoptionEvent comes in.

For two days the public is invited to come to the Indiana State Fairgrounds where rescue groups will bring over 1000 fantastic dogs and cats of all breeds, ages and sizes for you to meet. And if you fall in love, you’ll adopt through the rescue group that brought them. Adoption fees begin at just $30. All animals are already fixed and microchipped AND you’ll take your new family member home with you that day, too.

The event is FREE (parking at the fairgrounds is $8)

Why the IndyMega Adoption Event?

The purpose of the Indy Mega Adoption Event is one piece of the puzzle that works to address a major problem that Central Indiana is facing: pet overpopulation. We have far too many cats and dogs, most aren’t spayed or neutered. As a result, they are constantly creating litters…continuing the cycle.

Our local shelters simply cannot keep up and don’t have space to care for them all. Sadly, this is why so many perfectly healthy animals are still being euthanized- there’s just no room for them.

That’s where the IndyMega Adoption Event comes in. Shelters from across Central Indiana bring adoptable, spayed and neutered and vaccinated pets to the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Together we find them homes. Shelters are emptied, pets are in loving homes and they’re not adding to the pet population!
