Spay/neuter program rebrands to Indiana Humane Services


Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana recently announced it has rebranded to become Indiana Humane Services.

The name change reflects the comprehensive approach and strategies the organization uses in its effort to make Indiana a zero-kill state, according to a news release.

“Spay/neuter is and remains the No. 1 strategy to reducing pet overpopulation, but there is so much more that we do,” Indiana Humane Services Executive Director Cheri Storms said. “We also serve the pet wellness network through educational, advocacy and networking efforts that taken together can make dramatic changes in how rescues and shelters are able to best meet their goals. Our new name reflects that work.”

Indiana Humane Services already has helped increase the live release rate at shelters across the state by distributing thousands of spay-neuter surgery certificates per year to more than 300 animal welfare organizations and through the Spay-Neuter Assistance Program to low-income households.

The program allows qualifying households to fix their pets for $25. To date, the organization has fixed more than 165,000 animals.

These life-saving programs are made possible by motorists who choose the Pet Friendly specialty license plate, donors, grants and fundraisers.

2020 has brought additional challenges with a shutdown of veterinary clinics during the key "kitten season," and now, the need is greater than ever. Indiana Humane Services is seeing an unprecedented demand for its Community Cat Program.
