IndyVet collects donations for Humane Society of Johnson County
IndyVet Emergency & Specialty Hospital collected bins full of pet food and cleaning supplies for the Humane Society of Johnson County during its annual holiday drive, which concluded at the beginning of the year.
Since Thanksgiving, the veterinary hospital partnered with four of its referral veterinary clinics—Franklin Animal Clinic, Hillview Veterinary Clinic, Meridian Veterinary Clinic & Hospital, and Whiteland Animal Clinic—and on top of donations, raised $75 for the shelter.
"The cash alone will help us cover the expense of spaying 2-3 cats," said Janet Gorrell, Humane Society of Johnson County director of operations.
The Humane Society of Johnson County partners with Pets Alive in Bloomington to offer low-cost spay/neuter costs to Johnson County residents. And since September 2013, the shelter has worked with FACE and area veterinary clinics to fix over 100 stray cats as part of the TNR (trap-neuter-return) ordinance to help manage animal overpopulation.
