Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana (SNSI) is a statewide financial assistance organization whose mission is to eliminate the euthanasia of healthy and treatable cats and dogs.

Results: SNSI has facilitated more than 110,000 surgeries across Indiana. We provide direct support to more than 228 non-profit animal welfare organizations through our Pet Friendly Group Grant and Community Cat programs. These surgeries prevent unwanted litters, and lower both shelter intake and euthanasia numbers. Indiana is beginning to see signs of success, with shelters reporting zero kill (90% live release rate), from Brown County to Fulton County to Hamilton County. Other shelters are increasing their live release rates and are working toward zero kill. Shelters and rescue groups are clamoring for more of our free spay/neuter certificates, which are funded by the proceeds of the Pet Friendly specialty license plate, grants, bequests and donations from animal lovers.

Target demographics: Animals

Direct beneficiaries per year: 13,914 animals, and 228 non-profit animal welfare organizations

Geographic areas served: Indiana

Programs: low-cost and free spay/neuter surgeries.

I have been actively involved in animal welfare in Indianapolis for 20 years, doing outreach work in low-income neighborhoods, coordinating spay/neuter transport, community cat management, and managing local animal shelters. SNSI has been an invaluable spay/neuter funding resource for all the groups I have been a part of. Over the years, SNSI has routinely enabled my organizations to offer free spay/neuter to the animals at highest risk for unwanted litters, litters likely to end up in the shelter or on the street. Also, on numerous occasions, SNSI has helped my groups with special project funding to meet urgent spay/neuter needs, like community pet day events or large-scale cat TNR in trailer parks. It was extremely rare over the years that SNSI was not able to come through with spay/neuter funding to help meet an urgent need. Also, their Quick Fix program to expedite the SNAP program at spay/neuter clinics across the state has been extremely successful in making their program much easier for clients to take advantage of. SNSI provides an invaluable service to low-income citizens and their animals in Indianapolis and throughout the state.

I don't know where our organization would be without SNSI's support. They literally make our rescue possible by giving us grants to span neuter the animals and to help lower the pet population.

THE BEST!! Truly helping to curb the pet population by humanely spaying or neutering. And doing so by targeting so many avenues in the quest to make Indiana a No Kill state. ❤❤❤❤

SNSI is a fantastic resource for animal welfare groups like Meow Mission. Last year we were helping out in a hoarding situation - we trapped, neutered, vaccinated and returned 66 cats at one house - SNSI stepped in and helped us with Spay/ either certificates.

Friends for Paws would not have been able to provide for our community cats without SNSI help.
Truly love and promote everything they offer.

Absolutely love SNSI and what they offer. SNSI has a wonderful staff that have helped us be able to help our community with getting their pets spayed and neutered at a discounted price and even free for qualified recipients. I purchase the special SNSI license plate and proudly support all they stand for and do.

We are in a County that the shelter doesn't take cats at all. Without the help of SNSI we can help those who are in need. Thank you.

I have assisted many low/lower income pet owners apply for a voucher to get their pet fixed. This is an amazing organization that has enabled so many pet owners to be able to afford their pets spay/neuter surgery.
