During a joint clinic with Inspired Vision, an organization dedicated to feeding as many people as they can in North Texas, we met Ms. Villa. She arrived with four orphaned kittens whom she had rescued and bottle-fed over the past few weeks. She knew they all needed to be fixed and vaccinated, but she only had enough money to cover the expenses for one kitten. She thought she would have to decide on which one to keep and get that one fixed and vaccinated, and then surrender the other three kittens to the city shelter. Instead, we covered the spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations for all four kittens, thanks to donors and supporters of our Pet Support and Resource Center. That way, Miss Villa could use the money she saved to feed her family instead. Now, regardless of whether these kittens remained with her or found a new home with another family, they would have what they needed to get a healthy start in life.
These are the happily-ever-after stories we hope to create for pets every day.
Our Pet Support & Resource Center is an award-winning partnership with the City of Dallas and Dallas Animal Services to provide alternatives to surrendering a pet to the city shelter. Through this program, Spay Neuter Network provides services and resources to keep pets in their homes; helps pet owners rehome their pets on their own if needed; or routes pets to our local rescue partners for quicker adoptions.
