Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana Receives $10,000 Grant
The Humane Society of the United States has provided a grant of $10,000 to Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana, Inc. to support low-cost spay/neuter programs throughout Indiana.
The grant will help provide outreach and marketing material, surveys and other means to reach veterinarians and clinics not currently participating in the program. It will also help the program reach veterinarians and clinics in areas of the state with the greatest need for low-cost services.
Erin Huang, Indiana state director for The HSUS said: “By expanding the availability of pet sterilization, Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana lowers the euthanasia rate of healthy and treatable animals. We are hopeful that this grant will help SNSI reach even more pet owners and animals throughout Indiana.”
SNSI President Cheri Storms said: “We are delighted to have the support of The Humane Society of the United States as we work to increase the number of vets participating in our programs. Participating vets and clinics are vital to achieving our goal of spaying and neutering as many pets as possible across the state. This is just one more step on our journey to end the killing of healthy and treatable cats and dogs.”
