SPCA of Texas Announces “Fix ‘Em Dallas County” Program for North Texas Residents

Offers Spay/Neuter Surgeries, Vaccinations, Microchip and Pre-Anesthesia Blood Work for $20 Co-Pay

October 7, 2014

WHAT:   Beginning October 9 and lasting until funding runs out, the SPCA of Texas is again offering a program called Fix ‘Em Dallas County at its Dallas and McKinney clinics. This program, which the organization rolled out this past July, offers spay and neuter surgeries for pets of Dallas County residents. This time, vaccinations, microchip and pre-anesthesia blood work are included. Thanks to the generous support of those who have purchased an “animal friendly” Texas license plate, the SPCA of Texas invites pet owners to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to have their pets fixed, vaccinated and microchipped for only $20.

Fix ‘Em Dallas County will allow the SPCA of Texas to help reduce the intake of unwanted pets at city shelters by spaying and neutering hundreds more pets in the area for those who could not normally afford the surgery.

This innovative program will provide low-cost, high-quality care. All pets spayed and neutered under Fix ‘Em Dallas County will receive top-notch care from the SPCA of Texas’ medical staff, and all surgeries are performed by licensed veterinarians employed by the SPCA of Texas. For those only participating in spay/neuter surgeries, proof of up-to-date vaccinations is required for all spay/neuter patients.

All Fix ‘Em Dallas County surgeries will take place at any of the SPCA of Texas' clinics in Dallas and McKinney.

HOW: To make an appointment, Dallas County residents can call 214-742-SPCA (7722).

WHY: Spaying, neutering and vaccinating pets saves lives by preventing 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. Vaccinating pets 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.

"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!"
