Adoptions

About Adoptions Through FACE

The FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic is not a shelter and we do not actively take in animals from the general public. The cats and dogs at our clinic came to us via team members or other rescue situations in which the animal was at risk. They will live here temporarily until we can find them good homes. We have done what we can to make their lives here comfortable. We’ve incorporated a free-roaming cat room with vertical space and added an outdoor enclosure for the dogs and cats. But, they do not have the space that they need for their long-term well being.

These cats and dogs are in need of homes in which they have room to live, socialize with humans and other cat/dog companions and let their individuality shine. They are here because there are simply too many dogs and cats and not enough homes, which is why spay/neuter of every pet is so important.  See the dogs and cats we have for adoption on petfinder.com. Need a mouser for your business or a barn kitty to keep your barn pest-free? FACE has a barn cat program!

Adopting a Cat:

adoptions - catsWe have many cats and kittens looking for homes. Some are in our free-roaming cat/kitten room and some are in foster homes. If you would like to adopt a cat or kitten from us you must complete a Cat Adoption Application first.

This application does not bind you into adopting. It’s simply preliminary paperwork to ensure we make a good match. You may fill out the form online or print a copy and bring the application during our open cat adoption hours (Tuesday-Friday 10am-5:30pm) or email it to janetm@facespayneuter.org.

Adopting a Dog:

We DO NOT have open adoption hours for dog adoptions. If you are interested in adopting a dog from us you must complete an Dog Adoption Application first. This application does not bind you into adopting but is simply preliminary paperwork to ensure we make a good match. You may take your application to the clinic or you may email it to Janet Mellinger. Once your application is submitted it will be reviewed. Once approved, you will be contacted within 48 hours of submission to set up a “meet and greet” with the dog and complete the adoption. Then you take your new dog home!

Our adoption donations for dogs are $100. This helps defray the costs of the services we have provided each dog: the spay/neuter, full package of vaccines, a heartworm test, and a microchip.

Additional donations are sincerely appreciated.

If you don’t find the pet you’e looking for, please consider looking at Indianapolis Animal Care and Control. They are the Indianapolis city shelter. IACC is always near or at capacity and adoptions mean life or death there.
