Free help available for Indy pets during cold weather

INDIANAPOLIS - Snow has made its way through Indiana and bitter cold temperatures are still in the forecast.

Several organizations want to make sure that Indy residents know there is free help available to keep pets safe in the harsh winter weather.

The FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic and IndyFeral along with FIDO (Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outdoor) are offering supplies for animals that are at risk due to the forecasted dangerously low temperatures, officials said.

"Temperatures are going to be the lowest we have seen in 20 years and we’re asking pet owners and community cat caretakers to take action to ensure the safety of Indianapolis cats and dogs," said Ellen Robinson, director of FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic. "We’re providing free help to people caring for outdoor cats and through our partnership with FIDO are offering bedding for dogs kept outside and crates so that dogs normally kept outdoors can be brought in."


IndyFeral is open to distribute supplies, including cat shelters and straw for community cats, Saturday, Jan. 4 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

IndyFeral Warehouse is located at 5960 East 25th St, Indianapolis 46218 (25th and Arlington) 
Phone: 317-638-3223 ext 113 


Indy residents can call FIDO at 221-1314 to arrange for drop off of straw for outdoor dogs or crates so families can bring their dog in the house.

Officials said no Indy resident will be turned away. Donations to the groups are gladly accepted and help make outreach efforts possible. Click here for more information --
