February Newsletter: New Adoption Guide Saves More Lives!

How do I Adopt a Pet in Indiana?

Looking to adopt a pet, but don’t know where to start? With more than 300 rescue groups and shelters across Indiana, it can seem like a daunting task. We’re here to help!  Check out our Adoption Guide, which provides answers to common questions. You’ll also find a list of lists nearly 300 of the shelter & rescue partners Pet Friendly Services supports.

Save a life by adopting a new best friend! 

Is your house already full? We get it! You can still save a life today by putting your money where your heart is! A donation to Pet Friendly Services prepares cats and dogs in need for their forever homes and addressing the root cause of pet overpopulation.

No adoptable pet should feel unloved on Valentine’s Day. Help them go to the loving homes they deserve!

Speaking of Adoptable Pets…

Meet Ricky and Lucy! These two lovable darlings came to People United 4 Pups rescue through no fault of their own. Now, they’ve been given the loving care they so deserved, spayed and neutered, and are ready to find a forever home! If you think one of them would make a great new family member, you can inquire about them on the People United 4 Pups website.

Ricky and Lucy are just two of the thousands of animals fixed with help from Pet Friendly Services every year. Your donations and the Pet Friendly License Plate make this possible!

The FIX is IN! had a successful 2021, with 55 clinics taking place across the state and over 5,000 cats fixed. We’re off and running again in 2022 and fixed over 1,000 cats in January alone!

Thanks to our donors, financial assistance will be provided to families who could not otherwise afford to get them fixed. With your help we can continue to help those in need and address overpopulation at the source!
