INDIANAPOLIS — IndyHumane and Humane Society for Hamilton County are working together to increase the medical care animals can get at the shelters.

IndyHumane recently donated several pieces of equipment to Humane Society for Hamilton County. That donation included a portable dental x-ray unit, a dental scaler, and a high-speed hand drill. The equipment will allow the shelter to do dental cleanings and other procedures.

Other equipment donated will help with diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases like glaucoma.

“Having a medical center in our new facility is critical in serving over 3,200 animals each year—many of whom arrive with life-threatening injuries,” said Rebecca Stevens, the President and CEO of the Humane Society for Hamilton County. “We are incredibly grateful for IndyHumane’s generous donation of medical equipment as it allows us to perform even more procedures that will improve these animals' quality of life, and I’m looking forward to more opportunities for HSHC and IndyHumane to collaborate in the future.”

Both IndyHumane and HSHC are no-kill shelters and do not euthanize for kennel space, length of stay, cost of care, treatable injuries, illnesses, or behavior issues that can be rehabilitated – regardless of age, breed, disability, or special needs.
