Nonprofit launches new adoption and foster program for cats:

INDIANAPOLIS (May 30, 2012) -- Just in time for National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month this June, Indianapolis nonprofit FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic announces its new adoption and foster program for cats.

Unlike an animal shelter, FACE doesn’t actively take in animals from the general public. Instead, FACE team members bring in stray cats living in dangerous environments or provide for the cats that are found abandoned on their property.

Cats at FACE enjoy a free-roaming cat room with vertical space and an outdoor enclosure until they are placed in long-term homes after a three-part adoption process. Those interested in adopting a cat from FACE must fill out an application and schedule a clinic visit, followed by an at-home visit.

An adoption fee of $75 includes the spay/neuter, vaccines, a Felv/FIV test, and a microchip. FACE also adopts dogs, for a fee of $100, which includes spay/neuter, vaccines, heartworm test, and a microchip.

Animals under eight weeks of age, mothers who are nursing, or are recovering from illness or injury are in need of foster homes until they are well enough to be placed up for adoption.

Incentives for fostering include: all food, litter, and medical support needed to care for the foster animal is provided. FACE will also update up to three owned pets' vaccinations free of charge.

To learn more about adopting a pet from FACE, or becoming a foster parent, please visit www.facespayneuter.org. and fill out either an adoption application or a foster application (both Word files). To see some of the dogs and cats available for adoption or fostering, please visit the FACE adoption page. If you like, you can email the application to Anne at anned@facespayneuter.org.
