Many of our local shelters do a great job of helping the animals in their care and making sure that the animals are adopted or sent to rescue organizations like Foothill Dog Rescue. But the number of dogs entering shelters each day often exceeds available kennel space, and shelters are forced to euthanize just to make space for the incoming animals. Many of the animals that wind up in shelters were part of an unwanted or accidental litter. Spaying and neutering prevents this problem, but many people can’t afford the surgery. The under-served areas of the Central Valley have limited to no discount spay/neuter services for their community. Dog owners who wish to alter their pets but can’t afford the surgery are left without any options to care for their pets. Dedicated to tackling this problem where it starts, Foothill Dog Rescue has partnered with the SNIP Bus to sponsor NO-cost spay & neuter clinics for targeted areas in the Central Valley. Each day these clinics will alter up to 35 dogs of all sizes and breeds at no cost to the dog owner. Dog owners will be given the opportunity to alter, vaccinate and microchip their pet and be given a collar with ID and a leash. These areas are selected based on need and desire of dog owners to have their dog altered. A donation of as little as $60 can alter, vaccinate and microchip one small dog. The first two-day clinic will be held in December 2019. Depending on the funds raised, we will be offering these clinics as frequently as fundraising allows.
