about mended hearts rescue

Mended Hearts Rescue, Inc. is an IRS designated 501(c)(3) animal rescue formed in 2010 to serve homeless animals in the Indianapolis area who need a little extra TLC. We specialize in animals that need substantial medical care.

We are 100% volunteer run, and 100% publicly supported.

Our Programs


We work with shelters and vet clinics all around Indianapolis to save the highest risk animals - usually with severe medical issues.


Our team works diligently to promote our available animals, and carefully screens potential adopters to ensure a great fit for our animals.


Our Friends of Gladys program gives terminally ill or senior pets a loving home for the rest of their lives with one of our hospice homes.
