The IndyHumane Animal Welfare Center’s Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic has now performed 5,000 sterilizations over the course of 2016. To be considered an official low-cost/high-volume spay/neuter clinic, a clinic must reach this important milestone over the course of a year.
“This is a very significant milestone for the Animal Welfare Center for so many reasons,” says Cass Goodnight, Director of Operations for the IndyHumane Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic. “While we’re all ecstatic to have reached this milestone, we’re most excited by what this means for the animals in our city. Spaying and neutering cats and dogs greatly helps with our city’s animal overpopulation problem, and we’re happy to make an impact and help with this important issue.”
Thousands of homeless animals lose their lives every year in our city. Indianapolis Animal Care Services, the city shelter, takes in approximately 14,000 animals annually. The more dogs and cats sterilized, the fewer our city has to euthanize due to lack of space or time.
“We are extremely grateful to our patrons, who have entrusted us with their animals’ care; our rescue partners, who work with us on a daily basis; and our wonderful volunteers who helped make this happen for our community,” Goodnight says. “We look forward to accomplishing more and continuing to help our city’s people and their pets.”
The Animal Welfare Center houses the Humane Society of Indianapolis’ Low-Cost Spay/Neuter and Vaccination Clinic. The Center is located in the Haughville neighborhood, which was identified as one of the areas most in need of animal welfare services. In addition to the low-cost spay/neuter clinic, the Center houses the Albert G. and Sara I. Reuben Vaccination Clinic, offering low-cost cat and dog vaccines.
The clinic is working toward a more humane and safe city through targeted spay/neuter and vaccination efforts. You can find additional information at indyhumane.org/AWC or by calling 317.602.3423.
Special thanks to the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, our lead partner who helped ensure this vision became a reality.

IndyHumane assisting Sevier County Humane Society following wildfires
December 5th, 2016
The Humane Society of Indianapolis (IndyHumane) will be transporting dog and cat food, puppy pads, pelleted cat litter, crates, and other pet supplies to the Sevier County Humane Society on Tuesday, December 6, to assist with the shelter’s needs following the wildfires in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
The Sevier County Humane Society has opened an emergency shelter location at the Sevier County Fairgrounds. At this location, the shelter is accepting stray animals as well as offering shelter for pets whose owners have been displaced from their homes due to the fires. The public has been instructed to go to the fairgrounds to search for any missing pets. Pet owners from the area can also board pets at this location temporarily if their homes were destroyed. Heather Hamilton, Operations Manager at the IndyHumane Animal Welfare Center, contacted Sevier County Humane Society to see if the shelter was in need of supplies.
