June Newsletter: Driving Down the Road to Zero Kill

Summer is Just Around the Corner!

Summer is almost here and there is no better time to transform your car into a lifesaving machine! Every time you drive with a Pet Friendly License Plate, you’re helping cats and dogs across the entire state.

If you already drive with the plate, THANK YOU! You’re among the 28,000 animal-loving Hoosiers who’ve chosen to save lives and prevent suffering. Indiana’s animals are better off because of you!

Ready for Forever Families!

Your support helps shelter dogs find forever homes! Indiana law states that all cats and dogs must be spayed/neutered before being adopted. By providing spay/neuter vouchers to shelters and rescues, Pet Friendly Services readies the pets for a swift adoption. Faster adoptions means more lives saved and gets Indiana closer to zero kill.

Dogs like Toby and Kevin are adoption-ready and waiting for forever homes. A common misconception is that if you decide to rescue an animal, your options are limited on breed, age, or temperament, but that’s simply not true! You can find dogs of all shapes and sizes in rescues and shelters – along with adorable cats and kittens. For more information on adopting from one of Indiana’s shelters and rescues, visit www.AdoptINpets.org!

Catching up with The FIX is IN!

“The FIX is IN” is continuing to roll across the state! With 41 Indiana clinics to date (in 2022) and 12 more scheduled so far, we’re fixing cats that otherwise would not receive a lifesaving spay/neuter surgery.

Pet Friendly Services is able to provide financial assistance at “The FIX is IN!” clinics because of people like you who drive with the Pet Friendly Plate and donate.

Last month, a two-day clinic in Terre Haute fixed over 342 cats! The word got around that big things were happening and it was covered on the local news.

Here’s where THE FIX is IN! will be next:
