All of us at Spay Neuter Network are excited about a New Year! 2015 brought many changes, new faces and new opportunities. We couldn’t do it without our special relationship with supporters, our numerous animal welfare partners, our amazing staff and of course, our pet parents and their pets.
Founder and former president of Spay Neuter Network, Bonnie Hill “retired” and handed the reins to a new team, but not before she was recognized with the St. Francis of Assisi Award from Paws in the City.
My team blazed ahead with a record breaking year. We sterilized 17,183 animals in dozens of communities in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and took the HopeMobile MASH Unit on the road for nearly 150 visits and more than 4,200 surgeries.
We joined forces with several community cat organizations for National Feral Cat Day and trapped, neutered and released (TNR) nearly 100 cats in one day.
Hundreds of people lined up for free vaccinations with their pets in Fort Worth for the Dog (and Cat) Day of Summer at Sycamore Park and the Blessing of the Animals in Oak Cliff.
As we launch into 2016, we are guided by our mission; to eliminate pet overpopulation through subsidized spay/neuter services, while empowering communities to care responsibly for dogs and cats. Spay/neuter is the most powerful way to reduce the horrendous reality of three million dogs and cats euthanized each year. What sets my incredible team here at Spay Neuter Network apart is their passion and understanding that you make this change by educating one pet parent at a time. It’s all about relationships.
