We are incredibly proud to have provided over 50,000 subsidized surgeries over the past five years and to contribute every day to solving the homeless animal problem in Los Angeles. We appreciate the support of donors who make our work possible.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
The Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles (SNP LA) is joining forces with the Humane Society of the United States to celebrate World Spay Day 2012 by offering free surgery and vaccinations for 100 pets of low income households.
Thanks to a generous sponsorship from The HSUS, the Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles is providing free spay neuter surgeries and vaccinations for 100 pets at their Van Nuys location February 27-29. Pet owners must have a household income of less than $40,000 per year and make advanced reservations to take advantage of this free offer. For more information or to make an appointment call the Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles at (310) 574-5555.
In addition to the free surgery promotion, SNP LA is hosting an open house at the Van Nuys location (14409 Vanowen St., Van Nuys, CA 91405) on February 29th from 4-7pm to celebrate performing its 50,000th surgery since launching in 2007. The open house, which is open to the public, will offer an opportunity to meet SNP LA’s expert medical staff and tour the state-of-the-art clinic, as well as feature food, drink and door prizes.
The Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles is the Southland’s largest provider of subsidized low cost and free services and relies upon the generosity of donors to support low income pet owners. The 50,000 surgeries performed by SNP LA over the past five years have avoided the birth of hundreds of thousands of unwanted dogs and cats that would otherwise crowd an already overwhelmed shelter system that euthanizes over 100,000 pets countywide each year.
“We are incredibly proud to have provided over 50,000 subsidized surgeries over the past five years and to contribute every day to solving the homeless animal problem in Los Angeles,” said Noel Jackson, Director of Operations for SNP LA. “We appreciate the support of donors like HSUS who make our work possible.”
With three full time spay neuter clinics now reaching full capacity, SNP LA expects to sterilize nearly 30,000 pets in 2012 alone. Based on spay neuter programs in other communities, sustaining this level of subsidized low cost spay neuter services for the next five years should reduce shelter intake by 20% and euthanasia by even more.
“The Humane Society of the United States is committed to raising awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering and connecting people to the resources in their communities,” said Alana Yañez, of The HSUS’ Pets for Life Los Angeles program. “We are proud to be working with the Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles to make low cost and free spay and neuter services available to Los Angeles area pet owners.”
The Van Nuys Open House event is open to the public, and will be held on Wednesday, February 29 from 4pm – 7pm at 14409 Vanowen St., Van Nuys, CA 91405.
