Fix-A-Bull Spay and Neuter Clinic

On September 23, 2009 Respect-A-Bull, Inc. had their second free Fix-A-Bull Spay and Neuter Clinic at the Hugh Smith Recreation Center. Kristie Miller, President of Respect-A-Bull, Inc., in partnership with the City of Arlington hosted the clinic giving free rabies vaccinations, microchips, city licenses and spay and neuter for Pitbulls of registered attendees. There were 42 Pitbull owners in attendance at the two hour "Responsible Pet Owner Class" taught by Community Services Educator, Chris Huff 

The two clinics provided a total of 76 Arlington resident Pitbull owners training in responsible pet ownership. Pitbull owners had an opportunity to ask questions regarding city ordinances, dangerous animal laws, and more. This community partnership may help reduce overpopulation of Pitbulls in Arlington by as many as 332,272 over the next seven years. Arlington Animal Services is committed to helping build strong, safe Arlington neighborhoods.

A special thank you to Dr. Howard and Dr. Campbell for administering the spay and neuter surgeries. We would also like to thank the Texas Coalition for Animal Protection (TCAP) team and Respect-A-Bull, Inc. for their commitment to helping make these clinics a success. Thanks also to Petmate for donating portable kennels, and Airgas for donating oxygen for these events.
