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.
Community Cat Program (CCP)
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 Program (PFPP)
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 is a traveling veterinary clinic that works to identify communities in need of access to low-cost spay/neuter. They ask for animal owners to pay what they can for the services they provide. Pet Friendly Services has partnered with Public Vet and will cover unmet costs at clinics in 2021.
