Lovin' Our Pets and Our Pigs

By Sarah Ford of Indiana Pork

At Indiana’s Family of Farmers, we love our pets and our pigs.  Whether our household pet (and we all have at least one good barn dog) or our precious livestock, taking care of the animals entrusted to us is a duty and a privilege. 

That’s why IFOF is a sponsor of the 8th Annual Mutt Strut sponsored by the Humane Society of Indianapolis.  The event, which will be held next Sunday, May 1 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, gives dog lovers the chance to walk around the famous track for a good cause.  All proceeds will go to the Humane Society of Indianapolis – so you can know that Indiana animals will be cared for with the proceeds!

Stop by the IFOF booth and dress up your pup with an IFOF bandana.  All it takes is a $1 donation to the humane society to take one home with you.

In honor of our involvement with the Indy Mutt Strut  (and because we just love all things animals) Indiana’s Family of Farmers is making a special offer.

We are going to donate $250 to your favorite local pet shelter.  All you have to do is reply to this post with your nomination.  Tell us why this shelter is worthy of our donation – of course, cute puppy and kitty pics are always welcome!

So tell us your story (on here, facebook or twitter) and we’ll choose a winner later this week!

I nominate CATS HAVEN, Indianapolis' oldest no-kill cat shelters. The shelter was founded over 20 years ago as a sanctuary for special-needs cats and kittens, and senior cats who had outlived their owners. The shelter now houses nearly 200 cats, many of whom are available for adoption.
