Finding My Forever Family

Cost:
Free

Event Description:

Art-fueled, full sensory experience where participants "become" a dog or cat and visit stations to understand life at IndyHumane’s shelter.
 
Whether you own animals or love them from afar, IndyHumane invites guests of all ages to step into Big Car’s Tube Factory facility and to gain empathy and understanding for what shelter animals experience on their journey toward finding a forever home.
 
You begin the journey by choosing the profile card of a dog or cat. As you move through the room, you will stop at stations to learn a little bit more about your animal’s story. Each stop is a customized and interactive experience that will incorporate either some form of art (music, video, graphics, acting, paintings) or ask you to use one of your 5 senses (taste, touch, sight, smell, sound) before moving on to  learn another step in your animal's process. Each animal's story is unique, so a person can choose to go through the stations multiple times, should they find the experience interesting. At the very last station in the experience, you will receive a current update on how the animal has been doing since leaving the shelter.
 
Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 9.
