The Pet Friendly Plate is Making Moves!

Summer is here, and people are on the move – and so is the Pet Friendly Plate! You might notice it on the back of buses in Indianapolis, South Bend, and Bloomington, as well as appearing on billboards across central Indiana.

OR, you might see it on the back of your own car! If so – thank you! You’re saving lives every time you drive! If you don’t have the plate yet, learn how to get your own Pet Friendly Plate at PetFriendlyPlate.org.

When you drive with this lifesaving plate, you’re helping cats and dogs across the state! Your support leads to success stories like the ones below.

Event Recap: Forever Families Found at Tails & Ales!

Pet Friendly Services hosted “Tails & Ales” at Broad Ripple Brewpub (Indianapolis) last month to help cats and dogs find forever families. Six local rescues brought cats and dogs of all shapes and sizes to meet potential adopters. Some were adopted that very night! A big thanks goes out to ARPO, Chihuahua Rescue Indiana, Four Legged Ranch, Homer’s Helpers, Second Chances Pet Rehab and Sanctuary, and Sacred Sycamore for participating, and to Broad Ripple Brewpub for being a gracious host!

All participating rescues received two free spay/neuter vouchers to ensure their available animals we ready to be adopted to forever homes! For more photos from this event, and to view more adoptable animals, visit this Facebook post.

Redemption Rescue was originally scheduled to participate in Tails & Ales, but then they had the greatest reason to cancel – they ran out of dogs!

They had such a successful week of adoptions that they ran out of dogs to showcase at the event – but they didn’t stop there. Like most rescues, Redemption Rescue pulls adoptable animals from shelters to give them a second chance at finding a forever family. They now have a new group of adoptable pets available. You can view them on their Facebook page.
We love a success story! All of these dogs found forever families thanks to the work of Redemption Rescue.
