Top Dogs Team Up!

IndyHumane's Top Dog Toto is back! This year he's teaming up with Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School's own "Top Dog," Chief, to raise money and also to encourage you to join our team to participate in the "Greatest Spectacle in Dog Walking" – of course we're talking about the Mutt Strut!

Chief is Brebeuf's school mascot and, under the leadership of sophomore Sophie Pruitt and her RAFA (Raising Awareness for Animals) school club, is excited to lead Brebeuf's Chief Pack to further IndyHumane's mission. Since age 7, Sophie's love for homeless animals has empowered her to become a foster mom to over 60 animals. In addition, she has raised over $25,000 – and she's only 16! With your support, we can help "pass the bone" from Toto to Chief (and Sophie) to become IndyHumane's 2020 Top Dog.


Please join us by making a donation AND walking with us at the Mutt Strut. Dress your pooch in your favorite Oz-inspired outfit or Brebeuf gear. Lion, scarecrow, tin man, flying monkeys anyone? Look for Dorothy, Glinda the Good Witch, and possibly even the Wicked Witch leading the pack with Toto in the pace car. We hope to have many new friends like you joining our Toto-ally awesome team!


To donate to our efforts, click on "Brebeuf's Chief" at so that your contribution will be counted towards Chief's efforts to become Top Dog.

See you at the track as we turn the Indy 500 bricks yellow on April 27!
