Robin Horowitz of the Mountain Communities SPCA is proud to announce that there has been a strong response to last week’s newspaper article about spay and neuter programs for dogs and cats.
"We have a stack two inches high of messages from responsible pet owners who are calling to get their animals spayed and neutered," Horowitz said Monday, July 13. The SPCA has organized low cost services for family pets.
Two separate organizations are working with the Mountain Communities SPCA, one for dogs and another for cats.
For DOGS: All reservations for the July 28 event have been filled. Angeldogs is now taking reservations for the August 25 event at Cuddy Hall in Lake of the Woods for small dogs. The fee is $55. Owners of medium and large dogs can ask for reservations with the Angeldogs Van in Bakersfield or Lancaster. Call 888-504-SPAY  to make your appointment. Please be patient. Angeldogs is a volunteer organization serving a wide area. They ask you to leave a message. They will respond within a week. As you can imagine, this is a popular service at a very reasonable price, so they often have 100 calls to return at a time.
The SPCA’s Horowitz adds this note: "Angeldogs can also provide help for pets of low income families. If you live between Gorman, Lebec and up to Pine Mountain, please don’t miss this chance to have your dog spayed or neutered—plus having rabies shots updated and your pet microchipped for only $55."
For CATS: The SPCA is organizing a bi/weekly trip to FixNation near Los Angeles. Please call 245-3035 to reserve space. The cat s/n service will be between $35-55 and does not include microchip service.
