There are many many things that YOU can do to help reduce the number of abandoned and surrendered pets
- SPAY OR NEUTER: ALWAYS, ALWAYS, spay or neuter! The first step in reducing the number of homeless animals is to help prevent unwanted litters. Click HERE for more information on spay/neuter assistance in Indiana. Click HERE for low income family assistance in Indiana.
- EDUCATE: Education is key to reducing the number of homeless pets. Learning the traits of specific breeds will help you understand your pets needs. This can help with training and other issues and ensure you have a great relationship with your pet. This holds true with mixed breeds as well.

- VOLUNTEER: Almost every rescue organization in operation today is in desperate need of volunteers. This can mean fostering an animal in need of a temporary home until a forever home can be found, or simply helping out at local adoption fairs. Southern Indiana Rescue holds “Adoption Days” at the Pet Smart on Veterans Pkwy. in Clarksville IN every Saturday between 1pm and 5 pm.
- SPONSOR: Consider making a donation. All proceeds help provide vetting, care, and supplies. No one at S.I.R. receives a paycheck. You can rest assured all funds received helps the pets we save.
