Our Story

Executive director, Rosie Ellis started rescuing stray kittens in her home in 1987 and in 1994 she purchased the property where the shelter current resides.

After receiving her 501(c)(3) status in 1995, she and her staff starting building what you see today as Rosie’s Southside Animal Shelter. From the very first kitten rescued, Rosie has been and continues to be an active member of the rescue and shelter community and works collaboratively with other leaders to reduce the suffering and pain of Indianapolis’ at-risk dog and cat community.
