The Seattle Humane Society & Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue Team Up
(Seattle) The Seattle Humane Society and Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue are teaming up to provide FREE spay and neuter surgeries to ALL pit bulls in the Puget Sound region for a limited time!
Pit bulls account for approximated 30% of lost, stray and abandoned animals in our community’s shelters today. We can help change these statistics by ending unwanted and unnecessary births by spaying and neutering. The time is now and the price is FREE!
"SPDR’s mission is to prevent unwanted purebred dogs from overloading the region’s public shelter systems. The Puget Sound region is experiencing an epidemic of homeless pit bulls," explained Lynn Erckmann, President of Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue (SPDR). "The truth is there are not enough good homes for all of the pit bulls looking for a family to call their own. We want to reduce homeless pit bull numbers with a free spay and neuter program."
The surgeries will be sponsored by Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue and performed by the Seattle Humane Society, located in Bellevue, where every companion animal receives high-quality care during their spay/neuter surgery, including pain medication. The dogs will also receive a FREE microchip!
In addition to saving lives, spaying and neutering can drastically improve your dog’s health and life expectancy. The idea that dogs become fat and lazy when they are altered is a myth. Spaying a female eliminates the possibility of uterine and ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the risk of breast cancer. Neutering a male reduces the risk of both prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. Neutering will also make your dog more affectionate and less likely to roam, get in fights or become lost.
If you have an unaltered pit bull, or know someone who does, call the Seattle Humane Society at (425) 649-7560 today to make an appointment during this limited time offer.
