Low-Cost Animal Clinic's $3M Revamp Unveiled

Posted: Updated:

An Indianapolis clinic that provides affordable spay/neuter and wellness services for pets has unveiled a more than $3 million expansion. The work at FACE Low-Cost Animal Clinic includes renovations and a second-story addition. FACE bills itself as the largest clinic of its kind in the state.

The expansion includes more surgery space, intensive care unit, new equipment for critical care patients, infectious disease zones for animals being treated for parvovirus and panleukopenia as well as more space for diagnostic equipment, outreach efforts and larger dogs.

Executive Director Jen Hancock says "we are grateful to our donors, our supporters, our construction partners, and our staff and volunteers for their dedication to high-quality care to our companion animals. Importantly, our new clinic enables us to enhance our services, which ultimately, supports our mission of ending euthanasia in our community."

Funds for the effort came from FACE's "Imagine" capital campaign and included key gifts from the Joanie Bernard Foundation, the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, Lilly Endowment Inc. and the Herbert Simon Family Foundation. The $3.6 million campaign is almost 90 percent toward its goal. Construction started in 2016.
