Paws and Promises

June 13, 2023 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 am

On Tuesday, June 13, 2023, the Marion County Clerk’s Office will perform
wedding ceremonies and vow renewals to raise money for the Friends of Indy Animals (FOIA).
This is the first annual event where couples who wish to be married or have their vows renewed
can bring their dog, cat or other pet with them to the ceremony.

The weddings and vow renewals will take place outside the City-County Building on Lugar Plaza.
Dogs will be able to use the new Lugar Plaza “Pawp-Up” Pup Park as well. Animals brought to
the Paws and Promises wedding event must be on leash or in their kennels while at the event.

Couples who desire a simple civil ceremony or vow renewal can visit Lugar Plaza between 9:00
a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13. Space is limited and reservations are encouraged, but
ceremonies for walk-in couples will be performed if time allows. In lieu of an officiant’s fee, couples
are asked to make a minimum $50 contribution to Friends of Indy Animals. FOIA is a nonprofit
organization that works alongside Indianapolis Animal Care Services to strategically provide
essential support for the agency and improve the quality of life for animals in Indianapolis.
