FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 30, 2020
INDIANAPOLIS – Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana today announced it has rebranded to become Indiana Humane Services. The name change reflects the comprehensive approach and strategies the organization uses in their effort to make Indiana a zero-kill state.
“Spay/neuter is and remains the number one strategy to reducing pet-overpopulation, but there is so much more that we do,” said Indiana Humane Services Executive Director Cheri Storms. “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 has already helped increase the live-release rate at shelters across the state by distributing thousands of spay-neuter surgery certificates per year to over 300 animal welfare organizations, and through the Spay-Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP) to low-income households.
These life-saving programs are made possible by motorists who choose the Pet Friendly specialty license plate, donors, grants and fundraisers. To learn more about Indiana Humane Services’ mission and programs, visit their new website at www.HumaneServicesIN.org.
*Our legal name is still Spay-Neuter Services. If you make a monthly donation or have a matching donation through your employer, there’s nothing to change. The same is true if you have Spay-Neuter Services in your trust.
