New to Animal Welfare? Learn All About it!

Have you wondered what the “animal welfare community” is and how you can make a meaningful difference for Indiana’s cats and dogs? Our brief guide answers commonly asked questions, explains the various roles of animal welfare organizations, and explains key strategies to save as many lives as possible!

Who We Are and What We Do

Pet Friendly Services is Indiana’s only statewide nonprofit animal welfare organization. Our spay/neuter programs are focused on ending the euthanasia of adoptable pets by addressing overpopulation at the source. We provide free spay/neuter surgeries to rescues, shelters, and community cat programs. We also provide $25 spay/neuter surgeries for pets owned by income-qualified Hoosiers. Surgeries are performed at any of the 120 vets in our statewide network. To date, we have funded over 200,000 spay/neuter surgeries, including 12,000 in the past year.

Pet Friendly Services of Indiana is also bringing attention to adoptable pets through our Pet Friendly Adoption Guide. Indiana shelters and rescue groups have every type of wonderful animal imaginable – from pure breeds to mixed-up-mutts – adopters are certain to find their perfect match! (Yes, you’ll also find fluffy kittens and adorable cats!)

When you drive with the #4 selling Pet Friendly specialty license plate, you are saving lives! Pet Friendly Services of Indiana is also supported by donations, grants and fundraisers. We do not receive government funding, so we rely on people like us, who love animals and are determined to make Indiana a zero-kill state.

Save Lives While You Drive!

By choosing the Pet Friendly license plate, you are not only showing your love of pets, you’re helping make every Indiana shelter a zero-kill shelter.

Pet Friendly Services of Indiana receives funding from this specialty plate and uses every penny to support the work of rescue groups, shelters, and community cat programs across the state.  We also fund surgeries for limited-income pet owners to ensure their pets are fixed.

We have funded more than 200,000 surgeries, saving hundreds of thousands of Indiana cats and dogs from euthanasia due to shelter overpopulation.

Impact Report

Thanks to people like you who donate or drive with the Pet Friendly license plate, we’re able to impact the lives of cats and dogs all across the state of Indiana. Each month, we publish the “Pet Friendly Services Impact Report” so you can witness how your contributions are leading the way to zero-kill status for Indiana.

Pet Friendly Services in Action: Community Cats are where it's at!

Pet Friendly Services of Indiana and Indy Neighborhood Cats teamed up for a special Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) project to find six adorable cats a brand-new home in a Zionsville barn! “Pet Friendly” Pet Reporter, Buffy Phyne, has the where, what, why and how community cat programs like this one can help cats AND dogs across the state.

The BEST way to get every shelter to zero kill is by reducing intake at the source. Pet Friendly Services, with funding from the Pet Friendly License Plate, provides spay/neuter surgeries for TNR programs that save thousands of lives every year. Together we ensure cats and dog live happy, healthy lives.
