INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Animal Care Services announced Thursday that they are running out of space for animals.

Since January 1, 689 new animals have come to IACS, while only 224 animals have been adopted.

IACS currently has 842 animals in their care, 430 of them are dogs.

Due to a lack of space, IACS is seeking out residents that will become short-term foster families for large dogs for the next few weeks. If not fostering, IACS is asking for families to consider adopting or coming to the shelter to share the animals stories, in hopes that they will get adopted by others.

For the rest of January, IACS is offering free adoptions. Adoptions include spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip and heart worm testing.

If you would like to become a foster, IACS ask that you fill out their application and look at all of their adoptable animals on their website.
