On Friday, November 12th, three animal welfare parties worked collaboratively to help move the city of Indianapolis one step closer toward eliminating the pet overpopulation problem in our community.
The Friends of Indianapolis Animal Care and Control Foundation purchased the former Indiana Companion Animal Network mobile spay-neuter clinic.
This purchase was made possible through the generosity of Eric and Julie Smith, Indiana Companion Animal Network and Darcie Kurtz, Animal Care and Control volunteer and Board chairwoman. The Smiths offered the clinic at a greatly reduced price in order to retain the spay-neuter clinic in the Indianapolis community. The clinic purchase was also made available by Darcie Kurtz who provided the $30,000 interest-free loan to facilitate the transaction
Darcie Kurtz points out that the number of pets in our city greatly outnumbers the good homes available. As a result, approximately 60 animals are destroyed each day in our community's animal shelters. Aggressive and targeted spay-neuter programs are key to reducing the pet overpopulation crisis.
Indianapolis animal service organizations including IndyFeral, Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana, Home for Friendless Animals, Move to ACT and Alliance for Responsible Pet Ownership cheer this development and look forward to seeing this unit put to work to prevent future unwanted animals.
