Fix your critter, prevent a litter!

Please make sure your pets are spayed or neutered!  The last thing we need is more puppies and kittens coming into the world!

The DFW area shelters are overloaded with tons of wonderful dogs, cats, puppies and kittens that need loving families and sadly many are dying daily.  We need more people to adopt and foster but the real key to saving and preventing more homeless animals is spay/neuter.  

Please be responsible and have your pet fixed.  Also talk to your friends and relatives and make sure their pets are also fixed.  There are several local organizations that have affordable (sometimes even free) spay/neuter services.  There are also numerous health and behavior benefits of getting your pet fixed.  For more information, check out the Metroplex Animal Coalition's website:

If you know anyone that's considering adding a dog or cat to their family, please be sure to encourage them to check the local shelters, rescue groups and in their search for their four-legged addition.  There are typically 300,000 pets listed on petfinder and it's easy to enter in search criteria so they can find what they're looking for and save a life by adopting a pet!  These homeless pets are an amazing testamant of courage with stories to tell and deserve to have a wonderful life with a loving family!
