FACE is excited to be part of the CrowdRise Giving Tower Holiday Challenge.
Your donation will make a dramic difference in animal welfare in Indianpolis-
Did you know that an amount as small at $25 can mean the difference between an animal staying in a home or an animal surrended to a shelter because an owner just didn't have the funds? Our goal is to keep animals IN home and never see the inside of a shelter. We do that by providing low-cost spay neuter surgeries, discounted vaccinations and a low-cost vet clinic where people can see a vet and get needed medical care for their pets without breaking the bank.
Here's how you can help:
$35 will vaccinate an animal
$50 will pay for a spay neuter surgery
$75 will cover the cost for a small TNR (Trap Neuter Return) project
$100 will help cover the cost of needed dental work for a cat or dog
$250 will cover the cost of a large scale TNR project
$500 will feed the animals in our care in our free roaming cat room for one month
Since opening in March of 1999, the FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic has made a huge impact in the city of Indianapolis. We've performed more than 219,000 spay and neuter surgeries, dramatically reducing pet overpopulation. At the end of the year 2000, just after FACE opened, 22,000 cats and dogs were killed in Indianapolis shelters. Because of our work, and thanks to the efforts of rescue groups that continue to pull animals from kill shelters, the number of animals euthanized in Indianapolis was just over 6,500 at the end of 2012. Indianapolis Animal Care and Control has reported that 13,666 dogs and cats were received in 2013 and 5,014 were euthanized. That is 1,486 fewer dogs and cats than were euthanized in 2012.We know that high volume spay/neuter is making a difference. Had the FACE Spay/Neuter Clinic not opened, an estimated 24,000 and 30,000 cats and dogs would be dying in Indianapolis shelters each year.
