Your support saves lives! Your participation in Humane Indiana's one-mile walk is a vote for the value of animals in our lives. The pledges you collect are an investment in the thousands of homeless animals and injured or orphaned wildlife that Humane Indiana takes every year. Every step you take gives a voice to those that can't speak for themselves. Please consider starting a team or walking as an individual to help our furry and feathered friends!
