ISU to ‘Fill the Cart’ for humane society


Indiana State University will once again host the “Fill the Cart” drive to collect items for the Terre Haute Humane Society animal shelter.

The large, dark green metallic cart that toured several campus buildings last December will once again be out to accept items to be donated to the animal shelter.

The shelter, which works to rescue animals such as cats and dogs, uses a variety of items to operate year-round. The shelter works with Terre Haute and Vigo County authorities with animal control.

The shelter needs an array of items to operate, from flea and heartworm medication to office supplies and newspapers. The shelter even can benefit from used bath towels. Volunteers bathe puppies and kittens with Dawn dishwashing soap.

The shelter also uses significant amounts of laundry detergent and bleach for the dozen loads of laundry that need to be done daily.

The green cart collecting goods will be stationed in different ISU campus buildings over the next several weeks for people to donate items.

The Humane Society also accepts gift cards from different stores, as the shelter can frequently run low on various items throughout the year.

The shelter recently ran low on office supplies, which are used in processing adoptions and other logistical needs. The shelter can run out of supplies quickly, Wheeler said.

Last year, the Indiana State community donated more than two cartloads of items to the Humane Society. A large van was filled to capacity with the items.

“I think this year will be even more successful because people … remember when we did that last year,” Wheeler said.

More information about the Terre Haute Humane Society, including a list of items that the shelter uses in operations, can be found at:
