Since opening in March of 1999, the FACE Low-Cost Animal Clinic has made a huge impact in the city of Indianapolis. We have performed more than 230,000 spay and neuter surgeries, dramatically reducing pet overpopulation. At the end of the year 2000, just after FACE opened, 22,000 cats and dogs were killed in Indianapolis shelters. Because of our work, and thanks to the efforts of rescue groups that continue to pull animals from kill shelters, the number of animals euthanized in Indianapolis was just under 1,800 at the end of 2016. We know that high volume spay/neuter is making a difference. Consider that had the FACE Spay/Neuter Clinic not opened, an estimated 24,000 and 30,000 cats and dogs would be dying in Indianapolis shelters each year.
