Indianapolis, IN – So what do you do when pet populations continue to rise and pet adoptions decline? That’s the problem that faces Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana (SNSI), an organization that provides financial assistance for low-income for dog and cat owners. With overwhelming requests and inadequate funds to meet those needs, SNSI needed a plan to make sure that families could afford to adopt pets after much of 2010 saw them suspend their assistance programs.
For 2011, SNSI has launched a Pet-Friendly license plate for Indiana residents to fund the Spay-Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP). For each $40 plate sold, $25 is donated directly to the SNAP fund. These funds will pay for spay and neuter surgeries for low-income Indiana residents.
“We are giddy with excitement about the release of the Pet Friendly license plate,” said SNSI president Juli Erhart-Graves. “It’s a great way to show off your love for dogs and cats, as well as curb Indiana’s pet overpopulation.”
