Pet Friendly Services’ partnership with Public Vet is on pace to surpass 2021 Totals
INDIANAPOLIS – “The FIX is IN!”, a partnership between Pet Friendly Services of Indiana and Public Vet, has completed over 4,000 spay/neuter surgeries year-to-date in 2022. This partnership focuses on and identifies at-risk communities in need of affordable spay/neuter surgeries and essential care for cats. The project is on pace to surpass 2021 totals.
Public Vet is a mobile veterinary clinic that can fix up to 130 cats per clinic. The surgery rate is $90, but support from Pet Friendly Services provides additional discounts for cases with demonstrated financial need. There have been over 60 FIX is IN! clinics in Indiana this year.
Why only cats? Cats can reproduce at as early as 4 months of age and at a prolific rate. Left unchecked, a cat population can quickly overwhelm the resources available at a shelter. Curbing the intake of cats and kittens is essential to reducing the euthanasia of both shelter cats and dogs.
“The FIX is IN! is making a profound impact on communities in need,” said Pet Friendly Services Executive Director Cheri Storms. “The Pet Friendly specialty license plate funds projects like this as well as thousands of other spay/neuter surgeries each year. This prevents the euthanasia of healthy and adoptable animals while addressing the root cause of shelter overpopulation.”
Surgeries are by appointment only. Pet owners should book appointments right away, as spots are limited. Sign up at www.pub.vet.
Pet Friendly Services of Indiana is funded by the Pet Friendly license plate, grants, and donations. To support this project or learn more, please visit PetFriendlyServices.org.
