Our Staff

Tammy Sollenberger Tammy Sollenberger – Executive Director. A life-long animal lover, she has practiced ‘trap, neuter and return’ for feral cat colonies in Hamilton County for many years. She has been a volunteer and a staff member at FACE Low Cost Spay-Neuter Clinic in Indianapolis. Tammy was the catalyst for the formation of the Hamilton County Task Force and served as a member for two years. The Task Force addressed the animal issues by rewriting all of the Hamilton County ordinances for animals and developing plans for a high volume, low-cost spay neuter clinic. The result of this work lead to the establishment of the Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinic located in Noblesville. Tammy participated in the Indianapolis Spay/Neuter Panel that culminated in the report, Saving Money, Saving Lives: Spay-Neuter Solutions for Indianapolis and the Animal Welfare Summit Group. She has extensive knowledge about pet overpopulation and the ways of mitigating this important issue to the community. She has attended conferences, visited other spay-neuter clinics, and researched the functions and operation of high volume clinics.
