There will be adoptable animals of all ages, breeds, and sizes from 29 different animal shelters in Indiana.
All animals will be fixed, vaccinated and micro-chipped, and if you find a furry friend they can go home with you right away. The adoption fee is $30.
Leave Fido at home! For safety reasons we ask that you please do NOT bring your own family dog to #IndyMega. A meet & greet can be arranged.

“The upcoming Indy Mega-Adoption event marks two significant milestones for animal health and well-being,” said event organizaer Megan Bennett in a press release. “This is our tenth adoption event in five years, resulting in the adoptions of approximately 7,000 animals. At the same time, we are seeing a record number of shelters from Indiana coming to Indianapolis as part of this collective effort to find loving homes for animals while cutting down on needless euthanasia.”
The Indy Mega-Adoption Event is the largest two-day pet adoption event in Indiana, and helps make more room at shelters, which often become over crowded.
