Humane Indiana Receives PEDIGREE Foundation Grant

Humane Indiana is delighted to announce it has received a grant from PEDIGREE Foundation to support HI’s Surrender Prevention program, which provides emergency assistance that keeps pets and their parents together.

Humane Indiana’s goal is to avoid shelter admission whenever possible through programs like the pet food pantry, clinic, and crisis foster program.  HI’s pet food pantry provides not just pet food, but also necessary supplies for a safe and healthy pet, like leashes, harnesses, collars, crates, bowls, bedding, training, toys, medication, preventatives, vaccinations, and treats. Assistance is available by stopping by the facility at 421 45th Street in Munster or calling 219-922-3811. Families using the pantry may also receive referrals for other family needs, in partnership with the United Way of Northwest Indiana.

Humane Indiana’s clinic offers discounted spay and neuter, microchipping, and basic veterinary care to low-income people in Gary, East Chicago, Merrillville, and Hammond and can be scheduled by calling 219-922-3811.

With Pedigree Foundation’s support, Humane Indiana will be able to help keep 300 dogs with their families.

“Humane Indiana offers many resources to the community to help families avoid the heartbreaking decision to give up their pet – from behavioral training, to pet food and supplies, to helping make care affordable to those with low incomes,” said Jessica Petalas. “We are honored to be one of only 10 organizations in the nation to receive this grant in recognition of these initiatives.”
