Moonlight Loop Information

Registration is now open for the 2019 Moonlight Loop

The Moonlight Loop is an evening bicycle ride of approximately 19 miles around scenic Columbus, Indiana, to benefit Columbus Animal Care Services (CACS).  The ride will take place on Saturday, August 3, 2019.   Modeled after the Indy N.I.T.E. ride in Indianapolis, Indiana, the ride will make a loop around the City of Columbus, passing several architectural gems along the way.

2019 marks the 6th year for this ride.  In the three years of the ride’s existence, the event has netted over $58,000 for Animal Care Services.

SNSI provides low-cost surgery certificates to limited-income individuals and free surgery certificates to 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare groups and municipal shelters, including Columbus Animal Care Services. A statewide network of veterinarians graciously discount their services for our clients, and SNSI pays the remaining cost. Since their inception in 1977, SNSI has helped spay/neuter more than 130,000 pets in Indiana.
