Indianapolis Pet Resources

Visitors from Indianapolis often tell us how much they and their dogs enjoy the time they spend in Beverly's Pet Campus Bark Park. The fully-enclosed, 4-acre park allows them freedom and security rarely found at public parks and facilities.

However, we understand that not everyone can come to the Fishers campus as often as they would like. To help our friends in Indianapolis find outdoor alternatives to Beverly's Bark Park that they can enjoy with their pets a little closer to home, we provide information about local parks they can visit when they can't make it to Beverly's Pet Campus, as well as local resources, such as Pet Stores, veterinary care, dog adoption and pet rescue services, and dog-friendly events throughout Indiana.
