Love me. Fix me.

Love me. Fix me.

What is the Love me. Fix me. campaign?

Indianapolis has a pet problem. There are too many cats and dogs running loose, and too few have been spayed and neutered. As a result, approximately 16,000 animals per year end up in government facilities with too few being adopted. The "Love me. Fix me." campaign aims to change this by working to dramatically increase spay/neuter rates in Indianapolis and surrounding areas. 

Three local funders, led by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, are investing more than $2 million into a collaborative effort to enhance animal welfare services, educate pet owners and dramatically increase spay/neuter rates in central Indiana.

With the Humane Society of Indianapolis acting as lead agency, the Indianapolis Animal Welfare Alliance will use the funds in three ways:

• Increased access to spay/neuter services in underserved areas

• Community outreach and education

• A region-wide PR campaign called “Love me. Fix me.” focused on spay/neuter services, adoptions and responsible pet ownership.

In addition to the Humane Society of Indianapolis, the members in the recently formed Animal Welfare Alliance include Indianapolis Animal Care and Control, Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana, FACE (Foundation Against Companion-Animal Euthanasia), Southside Animal Shelter, Cat’s Haven, FIDO (Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside), Indy Pit Crew, Casa Del Toro, and Paws and Think. Other groups may join in the future. 

The Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust has awarded the Alliance initiative a $1.25 million grant; Lilly Endowment Inc. has awarded a $500,000 grant; and the Tony Stewart Foundation has awarded a $30,000 grant. The Pulliam Trust also announced that it has awarded three other grants to FACE (Foundation Against Companion-Animal Euthanasia), The Southside Animal Shelter, and Cat's Haven.

This initiative is one of the first of its kind in Indianapolis. Never before have this many Indianapolis-area organizations come together to tackle dog and cat homelessness, helping animals and communities in the process.

You can help us lower the number of stray cats and dogs in our community and help more animals find loving homes. Watch our website for further information as the campaign unfolds, and join us in the fight for Indianapolis' animals.
