Dear Indiana Advocates,
Please join the ASPCA, The Humane Society of the United States and fellow animal lovers on Tuesday, March 12, in Indianapolis for Indiana Humane Lobby Day. This is your opportunity to let state lawmakers know, in person, that you support animal protection and oppose laws that would allow animals to be hurt and exploited.
During Lobby Day, you will be the voice for the animals you care about!
Indiana Humane Lobby Day provides animal advocates with a structured, comfortable setting in which to meet their elected officials. Weâ€™ll organize and help prepare you for these meetings with insider tips and an overview of pending or upcoming legislation that directly impacts animals. Legislative topics will likely include supporting spay/neuter and ending canned hunting.
This annual event is critical to our lobbying efforts, is a great networking activity, and is invigorating, inspiring and very personally rewarding. Donâ€™t miss outâ€”RSVP today.
Please spread the word!
The staff at the shelter would like to wish all of our friends, associates, and visitors a Happy Holiday. Please take a moment to enjoy this beautiful video made by our talented friend, Joe Canning!
