Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Wouldn't it be nice if there was a home for every animal at the shelter? We can make it a reality! Our work helps prevent unwanted animals from entering local shelters in future years. In 2017, we increased spay/neuter by 400%, which lowered the euthanasia rate by a whopping 86%, so we know our impact is great. We are that much closer to making homeless pets a thing of the past!

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to reduce the number of unwanted cats and dogs who are euthanized at shelters every year by providing high-quality low-cost spay and neuter surgeries. We want there to be a loving home for every pet up for adoption.

We offer low-cost spay/neuter surgeries to 24 animal welfare groups in the south central Indiana, as well as individuals from any region. We provide transportation for an average of 60 cats and dogs every day and perform an average of 80 surgeries every day.

Pets Alive employs three of the most highly trained spay/neuter veterinarian surgeons in the country. They have specialized training to perform high-volume spay/neuter and each average 40 surgeries per day. Our expert veterinarian assistant have all received extensive training and assist in surgery prep, operation, and recovering.

Since opening our spay/neuter clinic in 2005, Pets Alive has seen an 40% increase in spay/neuter surgeries across southern Indiana, resulting in a staggering 60% decrease in the euthanasia of cats and dogs at shelters. We have performed over 120,000 surgeries and continue to fix an average of 80 pets every single day. We will continue our work until there is a loving home for every pet up for adoption.
