FACE is not without their fair share of animal tragedies and abusive encounters. Every week FACE treats animals suffering from neglect and cruelty; however, at the end of every tragic story, an animal survives from the heroic efforts from FACE.
Take the story of Josie, a lonely, abandoned and abused dog found discarded on the steps of FACE Clinic. After careful inspection, it was found that Josie had a bullet in her left jaw and was in frail condition. Painfully, Josie struggled to survive from this horrific incident and held fearlessly onto the life that she had. It was in the caring arms of FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic that helped her heal. The bullet was removed, and Josie was sent into recovery at the FACE Clinic.
Animal stories like Josie’s are too prevalent in our community, and it is frustrating to know that some individuals can act so cruelly. There is a great need for Indianapolis singles to find companionship in an animal that may have once been abused, neglected, or simply dropped off at a shelter. What can we do to prevent animal abuse? Do you own a pet that was either abused or neglected? We would love to hear your stories.

Fact: From 2000-2008 FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic decreased the number of euthanized animals in Indianapolis from 22,000 to 12,000 with each year coming out with a decrease in numbers!
The Foundation Against Companion-Animal Euthanasia, a non-profit organization within the Indianapolis community, was established in 1993 to decrease the number of cats and dogs euthanized in the area each year. Our clinic, located on 1505 Massachusetts Avenue, has developed a fast and efficient process to do a high volume of
spay/neuter surgeries daily- approximately 70 per day!
By making an appointment, you can help further the mission of FACE and help prevent pet overpopulation that is so prevalent in our city. Or, if you are looking to give an animal a great home, we have an adoption center available. If you’re single and looking for that sweet, cuddly companion to curl up with and relax, come on over and check us out!
