EVENT: Saving Pets Challenge 2015
FOUNDATION AGAINST COMPANION ANIMAL EUTHANASIA INC wrote -
FACE is Indianapolis' only high-volume, low-cost animal clinic dedicated to keeping pets out of shelters before they ever set foot in one. Through our spay/neuter efforts FACE has fixed over 220,000 animals, dramatically lowering the city's shelter intake and euthanasia rates from around 20,000 animals in 1999 to just over 3,000 in 2014.
But we also saw a need for low-priced medical care in the city, too. Many animals are surrendered each year when pet owners find that a pet is sick or injured. They simply cannot afford traditional care. In 2014 we opened the city's first low-cost animal clinic to give pet owners an option besides surrender.
Your donation to this Crowdrise Challenge will help up continue to come up with and fund innovative and life-saving programs that will ensure pets are safe from the uncertainty that a shelter stay brings. You'll help us keep animals in the homes they know with the people that love them because the only requirement for pet ownership should be love.
