Animal welfare groups in Indianapolis are receiving more than $2 million from three foundations to provide spay/neuter services and help stray and abandoned animals.

The Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust will prove more than $1.5 million to the newly formed Indianapolis Animal Welfare Alliance and other groups, the Lilly Endowment has awarded a $500,000 grant and the Tony Stewart Foundation has awarded a $30,000 grant. Some of the money will be used for a regional public relations campaign focused on spay/neuter services, adoptions and responsible pet ownership.

The Pulliam Trust is giving $170,000 to the Foundation Against Companion-Animal Euthanasia to double the number of cats it neuters to 6,000 and to help it merge with a second group trying to decrease the number of feral cats in the city.
