INDIANAPOLIS- On Oct. 11 Colts players and Colts Vice President Kalen Irsay visited the Humane Society of Indianapolis as a part of the team's "Community Tuesday" program.
The visit began with a tour of the facility, which annually organizes the adoption of more than 4,000 animals. After the tour Colts P Pat McAfee, RB Donald Brown, RB Chris Gronkowski, TE Mike McNeill, and G Matt Murphy ran the dogs through various training exercises.
Throughout the afternoon pictures were taken of the players and their dogs, and at the end of the day the photos were printed and signed. The Humane Society will include the photos with dog's information sheet in hopes of helping the dogs find a new family more quickly.
Irsay, an animal-lover herself, served as a grand marshal earlier this year for the Humane Society's annual "Mutt Strutt" fundraiser at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. She will serve as an honorary chair of the event in 2012. To learn more about the Humane Society of Indianapolis visit www.indyhumane.org.
