Adopt A New Furry Friend At IACS Late Night Adopt-A-Thon

They're staying open later in hopes more people come to the shelter to meet the animals that are looking for a new home.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Stay out late and adopt a new furry friend.

Indianapolis Animal Care Services is holding a "Late Night Adopt-A-Thon" from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. tonight.

"We typically see an influx of animals coming to the shelter during colder weather," said Katie Trennepohl, Deputy Director of IACS.

By staying open later they're hoping more people will come to the shelter to meet the animals that are looking for a new home. 

They're also hoping to free up more kennel space. 

"People just need to make sure they bring their photo IDs with them," said Roxie Randall, Public Information Officer for IACS, "because they will need that in order to adopt an animal from us." 

She says if you are planning to adopt you should also bring the whole family, so the animal can meet everyone they are sharing a home with. 

If you find an animal you want to adopt, she says they can go home with you that night if they are spayed or neutered. If they aren't you will be able to take them home after they have been. 

All adoptions are free and the first 25 dogs and 10 cats adopted will go home with a special adoption kit. Randall said that the kits come with everyday items like litter, food, and toys.

The event will also have activities for kids, a kissing booth to get your picture taken with your new pet, and the Bacon Station food truck will be there.

Lost pet tours, and return to owners will not be available after 6 p.m. and Animal Intake will close at 5 p.m.
