IndyHumane Animals to Receive Pastoral Blessings

The blessing will include a spoken prayer for the animals and individual blessings for each animal. The patron saint of animals, Saint Francis of Assisi had a deep love and compassion for animals that continues to be celebrated eight centuries after he founded the Franciscan order.

Serving Indianapolis and the surrounding counties since 1905, the Humane Society of Indianapolis provides vital services to animals and people alike through sheltering and adopting animals, providing positive reinforcement behavior training for both adoptable animals and for owned animals through our public training classes, and outreach through our community and shelter programs.

A private, nonprofit organization that receives no public or private government funding, the Humane Society of Indianapolis is supported solely by contributions, grants, bequests, investments, adoption fees and other fees for service.
