When Dorothy took in a stray cat, she confessed she didn’t want a pet. But a few days later, she found herself head over heels in love with the tabby she named Bless. Dorothy knew Bless needed to be fixed and vaccinated, but she didn’t have the money to care for him. She decided Bless would be better off at the animal shelter where he could find a new home. But this would put Bless at risk of euthanasia if a home could not be found in time.

That’s where Spay Neuter Network can step in and help. Through our Pet Support & Resource Center, we neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped Bless for free, thanks to generous donations and grant funding for this project. Dorothy was delighted we could take care of Bless and that she could keep her in the family.

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.
