A free spay/neuter and vaccination sponsored by Prevent A Litter (PALS) of Central Texas successfully sterilized 23 pets with the EmanciPET mobile veterinary clinic on March 8 at the Uhland Community Center, effectively reducing the number of homeless litters being born this spring.
PALS officials said many of the pet owners attending this free clinic would not have had the means to pay for the surgery and vaccinations for their animals.
The next free clinic will be on March 29 at the east Kyle La Roca Fellowship Church, 5411 Goforth Road. Appointments are required. For assistance, information or to make an appointment, call (512) 754-PALS ( 7257).
PALS has plans to offer additional free spay and neuter clinics this year. PALS offers vouchers for qualified pet owners to use the EmanciPET mobile clinics and local veterinarians.
PALS could use more volunteers, donors and sponsors. Interested parties can visit http://www.preventalitter.com for more information. More information is also available by calling Sharri Boyett at (512) 754-7257.
