INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Hoosiers looking to turn their home into a forever home are invited to Thursday night’s Tales & Ales adoption event.
The event, hosted by the Alliance for Responsible Pet Ownership, runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Broad Ripple Brewpub on East 65th Street.
Several animal rescue groups will be on hand with dogs and cats in need of loving homes. There will also be food, drink and music, says Rhiannon Johns, marketing and development manager for Pet Friendly Services of Indiana, an organization supporting the event.
“We have six local rescues joining us. It’s a great opportunity for them to showcase all of their pets,” Johns said.
Johns says there will be around 25 pets in a designated area in the parking lot outside the brewery.
“There are all shapes and sizes of dogs. Indiana Chihuahua Rescue joins us,” Johns said. “So any size, shape and dog and lots of kittens and cats too.”
Visitors will learn about the adoption process and may even have the chance to bring home a pet, according to Johns.
“It depends on the rescue. They all have their own policies. Some of them can be adopted on the spot. For some of them, you’ll need to fill out an application first,” Johns said.
ARPO’s next adoption event will be July 10 at the Irvington Farms Market in Indianapolis.
