FACE Animal Clinic Names Executive Director

Posted: Updated:

FACE Low-Cost Animal Clinic in Indianapolis has promoted Jen Hancock to executive director. Hancock previously served as director of development for the organization and is leading its $3.6 million "Imagine" capital campaign.

Prior to joining FACE in December 2015, Hancock spent six years at Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, where she also served as director of development. She helped launch FACE's capital campaign in June 2016, which currently stands at 89 percent of its goal.

"Jen Hancock has the perfect mix of experience in fund development, non-profit management, and collaboration with partners to lead our organization into the future," said Catherine Parker, board chair of FACE. "She is a strong and diplomatic leader with consensus building skills that will serve FACE and our clients well as we prepare for an exciting new chapter with the expansion of our clinic and the life-saving services we provide each year to companion animals in central Indiana."

In addition to naming its new executive director, FACE says it will open its new clinic in downtown Indianapolis in February. The organization broke ground on the clinic in June 2016 at the same time as the launch of the capital campaign.

The facility includes a 7,000-square-foot expansion of its currently space, which has also undergone renovation. The organization says the expansion will allow it to offer X-ray services on site for the first time, as well as increased surgery space, ICU and other advanced equipment, and designated infectious disease zones to treat animals with parvovirus and panleukopenia.
