Thanks from PetsALIVE

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.

from Chris Tann of PetsALIVE:

Greetings, Co-op shoppers! Thank you for supporting Bloomington’s PetsALIVE Spay/Neuter Clinic for the past five years. At the East Third Street location, co-op shoppers have made thoughtful contributions at the registers to our locally founded not-for-profit animal welfare organization.


Between 2003 and 2005, you supported the grass-roots work of Bloomington citizens who started PetsALIVE to save shelter animals from being euthanized.
Your early support generated needed funds to move adoptable pets out of shelters and into adoptive homes. Your giving saved animal lives and reduced the grim work of putting good pets down. After successfully placing more than 1,000 pet adoptions, the PetsALIVE board of local volunteers committed to your future support for solving pet overpopulation and focused on stopping pet homelessness at its source.

In 2005 PetsALIVE opened a Bloomington-based, specialized, low-cost, high-volume spay/neuter clinic for cats and dogs of southern Indiana. Because of support from neighbors like you and businesses like Bloomingfoods, PetsALIVE Spay/Neuter Clinic is now approaching 30,000 subsidized surgeries.

Donations from co-op shoppers make a difference in the lives of pet guardians who would not be able to otherwise afford this important surgery. PetsALIVE is dedicated to serving our mission, humanely solving pet overpopulation, until we achieve our goal of ‘no more homeless pets.’

PetsALIVE Spay Neuter Clinic thanks you on behalf of the pets, residents, animal shelters and agencies in 13 southern Indiana counties served by our clinic. Your investment with us improves lives for cats, dogs and community and promotes peace by supporting the only conscionable solution for pet overpopulation, spay/neuter.

Thank you so much for your generous support!
