Charity: SOAR Initiative – Assistance for people and animals in need in Indianapolis
SOAR Initiative works with people who are either experiencing homelessness or another life crisis and have pets. I love working with them because they use creative ways to preserve the human-animal bond. SOAR ensures pets get to stay with their owner through changing life circumstances, whether that be financial hardships, medical or mental health challenges, or many other situations that could lead an owner to consider giving up their pet.

Charity: Chihuahua Rescue Indiana – Rescue shelter
Chihuahua Rescue Indiana is a volunteer organization dedicated to the Chihuahua and Chihuahua cross canine rescue and adoption. They are looking for foster homes, volunteers, donations, and families to rehome their dogs. Chihuahuas are one of the top breeds that get rehomed, and they require a lot of training and socializing to become confident, so I love supporting this rescue! I have been fostering and grooming for them for many years now.

Charity: Pet Partners – Animal therapy all over the US
Pet Partners’ goal is to improve human health and well-being through animal therapy. They serve a wide variety of clients, including veterans with PTSD, seniors living with Alzheimer’s, students with literacy challenges, patients in recovery, people with intellectual disabilities, and those approaching end of life. They are always looking for volunteer and their pets and donations to make miracles happen for people in need. I strongly believe in animal therapy and the positive effects of the human-animal bond, especially for vulnerable people.
