WHY: Spaying, neutering and vaccinating pets saves lives by preventing unwanted litters, keeping thousands of animals off the streets and stopping the spread of dangerous illnesses like Parvo and Distemper.

Having pets spayed and neutered is the most important way to prevent pet overpopulation and ensuring animals live happy, healthy lives in loving homes by decreasing roaming tendencies, aggression and preventing certain forms of cancer in pets. And vaccinating them ensures that their immune systems can protect them from dangerous and life-threatening viruses and bacteria. Texas law also requires Rabies vaccinations. Further, veterinary wellness care is a critical component of preventative care for cats and dogs.

About Big Fix for Big D

The Big Fix for Big D initiative is a multi-year effort of four community partners to spay or neuter tens of thousands of pets in Dallas to significantly diminish numbers of unwanted litters, with the ultimate goal of reducing euthanasia at Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center. Through the Big Fix for Big D initiative, the City of Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center (DAS), Spay Neuter Network (formerly Kaufman County Animal Awareness Project, KCAAP), Metroplex Animal Coalition (MAC) and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Texas (SPCA of Texas), will offer free spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and registration.

Launched in June 2012, the Big Fix for Big D project in its first year targeted owned dogs and cats and feral/free-roaming cats in 18 Dallas zip codes located south of I-30. The goal is to decrease animal intakes at Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center.  For more information, visit www.BigFixforBigD.com

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
