The Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles is offering a free spay and neuter promotion aimed at helping Pitbulls, one of the most misunderstood and negatively mythologized dog breeds. Today, Pitbulls make up nearly half of the population of dogs in Los Angeles’ twelve animal shelters. Around 75% of municipal shelters euthanize Pitbulls immediately upon intake. Sadly, in the Los Angeles area alone, 200 Pitbulls per day are euthanized.
Thanks to a generous grant fund from the ASPCA, Found Animals Foundation and Pedro Pet Pals, SNP LA is offering free spay and neuter to all Pitbulls and Pitbull-mixes. SNP LA hopes to continue this much needed Pitbull program for this beloved and often misjudged breed with help from community donors. In 2014, SNP LA hit their target of 100,000 pets spayed and neutered since opening in 2007. High volume spay and neuter, which SNP LA provides at its three L.A. clinics, is the only proven solution to pet overpopulation. Spaying and neutering not only contributes to a pet’s long and healthy life, studies have shown that for every $1 spent on spay/neuter, $10 are saved in animal sheltering costs.
