Pet Friendly Services of Indiana provides statewide financial assistance. We raise funds and partner with a great group of veterinarians, who perform the surgeries. We provide low-cost spay/neuter certificates to limited-income pet owners and free certificates to rescue groups and shelters – they take the certificates to our vets, and we pay the bills.
The Spay-Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP)
The Spay-Neuter Assistance Program is for limited-income pet owners. Pet owners meeting the eligibility criteria pay just $25 per surgery and can schedule their appointment with a vet in Pet Friendly Services’ statewide network after receiving their spay/neuter certificate.
Pit Mix Fix (Pilot Program)
If you have a pit mix or large dog, this is the time to get them fixed for just $10!
This special Spay-Neuter Assistance Program is for income-qualified pet owners of pit mixes and large dogs. Certificates are currently only available in Jackson, Lawrence and Marion Counties thanks to generous donors who make this program possible.

Community Cat Grant (CCG)
The Community Cat Program is targeted to 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organizations that run Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs for community cats (feral and free-roaming). Free surgeries for feral cats help keep shelters empty and cats alive. The Community Cat vet package includes a spay/neuter, a rabies vaccination, and a MANDATORY eartip.
All you need to get started is a live trap, a staff member or volunteer who’s willing to help, someone in your community who wants help with their community cats, and a participating veterinarian.
Pet Friendly Plate Grant (PFPG)
The Pet Friendly Plate Program was established to provide rescue groups and shelters with FREE spay/neuter surgery certificates so they can alter pets before adopting them into their forever homes.
Public Vet – The FIX is IN!
Public Vet is a traveling veterinary clinic that provides services to communities in need of low-cost spay/neuter. The cost per surgery is $90 and is for cats only.
Pet Friendly Services provides financial assistance at each Fix is IN! clinic, which allows discounts on a case-by-case basis. You can apply for a discount when you register directly with Public Vet.
