Throughout October

Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana (SNSI) is teaming up with 22 local veterinary clinics to help pet owners get their pets spayed or neutered at a reduced fee during the month of October. This partnership with local veterinarians during the month of October makes it possible to reduce the number of unwanted pets, and consequently the number who are eventually euthanized each year and is available to pet owners regardless of income.

Pet owners who would like to take advantage of SNSI’s reduced surgical fee program may download a certificate at www.SpayNeuterServices.org/octcert.pdf, pick up a bright green certificate at many Central Indiana Libraries, or request one by mail by calling 767-7771. Participating vets, which are located throughout Central Indiana, are listed on the reduced fee certificate. For more information on this and other programs SNSI sponsors, please visit www.SpayNeuterServices.org or call 767-7771.
