 FREE SPAY & NEUTER SERVICES AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME TO PETS OF CITY OF DALLAS RESIDENTS

Big Fix for Big D service area expanded through March, 2015

(DALLAS, TX) January - March--The SPCA of Texas is excited to announce that, as a part of the Big Fix for Big D initiative, free spay and neuter surgeries, vaccinations and pet registration are now available to pets of low-income pet owners throughout the entire City of Dallas through the end of March of this year. Free spay and neuter surgeries and vaccinations are also extended to community cats in the City of Dallas during the same time period. This limited-time offer is available through the efforts of the four Big Fix for Big D partner organizations: Dallas Animal Services, Dallas Companion Animal Project, Spay Neuter Network and the SPCA of Texas.

Pet owners who reside in the City of Dallas and would like to take advantage of this limited-time offer can find more information on www.BigFixforBigD.com and make appointments by calling 214-742-7722. Caretakers of community cats should email pam.asturias@spayneuternet.org for assistance. Owners and caretakers will need to provide proof of residency at the time of surgery.

Since April of 2012, Big Fix For Big D has provided spay and neuter services for more than 21,000 companion animals and community cats. The three-year project aims to reduce the number of stray cats and dogs while helping Dallas residents care for their companion animals in order to promote safe communities and make a dent in the homeless pet population in Dallas.

Since the initiative’s inception, the included services have been focused on specific zip codes across South Dallas to target the highest-need areas based on information gathered during the successful introduction of the program. This limited time expansion of the program has been extended to the entire City of Dallas to encourage city residents to spay or neuter, vaccinate and register their pets and spay or neuter and vaccinate community cats.

The Big Fix for Big D initiative is funded by the Companion Animal Funders Coalition, which includes The Dallas Foundation, The Meadows Foundation, PetSmart Charities®, The Rees-Jones Foundation, George & Fay Young Foundation, The Mike & Mary Terry Family Foundation and the Summerlee Foundation. The City of Dallas provides in-kind support for the project in the form of free pet registration. In-kind support has also been provided by The Marketing Arm, which created and produced an advertising campaign promoting the initiative.

"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!"
