Bloomingfoods on East 3rd Street hosts point-of-sale donations boxes at
our check stands, rotating among many worthy local social service
agencies. One of these is PetsALIVE
, a non-profit organization
dedicated to ending pet overpopulation in south-central Indiana through
the operation of a regional, low-cost spay/neuterclinic. We recently
received a letter of thanks from Chris Tann, representing PetsALIVE.

shelters and into adoptive homes. Your giving saved animal lives and
reduced the grim work of putting good pets down. After successfully

volunteers committed to your future support for solving pet
overpopulation and focused on stopping pet homelessness at its source.
