A little pink collar and matching leash – Why North Texas Giving Day is the best day to donate to Spay Neuter Network

Last week I saw such a moving act of kindness from one of our clients.  We serve so many pet parents who really couldn’t afford to spay/neuter their animals or get their pets vaccinated unless we were here for them.  It is a rewarding experience every day, but this day I was moved to tears.  A young family came in with their female yellow lab mix in the back of their truck and the dog wore a piece of chain as her collar and leash.  A man was bringing in his little bully mixed girl to be spayed and he saw how the family as struggling to get their dog inside.  He took the brand new pink collar and leash off his girl and helped the young boy put it on his dog.  With a smile, he told them they could keep the collar and leash.  The entire family smiles back in thanks.

Each and every day I am amazed by the care and kindness of the pet parents we work with. Our mission is to eliminate pet overpopulation through subsidized spay/neuter services, while empowering communities to care responsibly for dogs and cats.  This mission is infectious and shared not only by our incredibly dedicated staff, but it spreads to our customers, neighbors and community. Every dollar we receive from our wonderful funders in the area, including our customers goes to help pets and pet parents.
