FACE Low-Cost Animal Clinic in Indianapolis has broken ground on a 7,000 square-foot facility adjacent to its current home. The ground breaking celebrates the launch of the clinic’s $3.6 million "Imagine" fundraising campaign to help expand its services to the city.

FACE says the new building is expected to be complete in early 2017. The clinic will move operations into the new facility and begin renovations on the current facility, ultimately combining the two spaces into one 14,000 square foot building. 

"FACE has been on the front lines of an aggressive campaign to spay and neuter our companion animals, as well as provide vaccinations, medical care, and other related services," said FACE Executive Director Ellen Robinson. "Together, we have made significant strides in curbing the needless euthanasia of animals due to pet overpopulation, and this expansion and capital campaign will ultimately allow us to achieve and maintain ‘no kill’ status."

The total project is expected to cost $3 million and be complete by late 2017. FACE says the expansion will be primarily funded through private donations. The "Imagine" campaign is already at 65 percent of its goal, according to the clinic.
