‘Paws and Pour’ brings adoptable dogs to Irvington coffee shop

INDIANAPOLIS — A cup of coffee at an Irvington coffee shop could lead to your new best friend this weekend.

Coal Yard Coffee, located at 400 S. Ritter Ave., has partnered with Indianapolis Animal Care Services for a special adoption event known as “Paws and Pour.”

To help alleviate overcrowding at the shelter, IACS will bring about 50 adoptable dogs to the coffee shop on Sunday in hopes of finding them a loving home.

“It’s nice to be able to take our dogs out and bring them to people instead of having them come to the shelter, which can be very overwhelming for anyone visiting an animal shelter,” said IACS Deputy Director Kelly Diamond.

During the event, all adoption fees are waived and each dog is up to date on vaccinations and has already been spayed or neutered.

Diamond says 14 dogs were adopted on Saturday. The event lasts Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.



Anyone who adopts a dog at the event will also receive a free leash and collar, a goodie bag and a coupon for a free puppy cup.
