Prevent A Litter (PALS) of Central Texas recently received a grant of $5,000 from Stokes Construction and issues a challenge to the residents and businesses of San Marcos to match that donation. Fraye Stokes of Stokes Construction made the grant in honor of her love for little dogs.

Stokes’ grant will go towards the spaying/neutering of 100 dogs, which assures that the pet population is kept safely under control, avoiding costly and sad euthanasia for surplus strays. PALS issues a challenge to the community to help an additional 100 dogs. A $50 contribution will go directly to the spay/neutering program.

PALS also helps low income families and individuals through provision of free pet spay/neuter, vaccinations, and/or food.

“Now more than ever before, during the economic downturn, people need PALS’ assistance to keep their pets out of the shelters,” said Shari Boyett, Executive Director of PALS of Central Texas. “Please join PALS in our mission to help end pet overpopulation. ”

Volunteers are always needed, as well. For more information about PALS, visit or call (512) 392-9749.

Contributions can be mailed to Pet Prevent a Litter (PALS) of Central Texas, PO Box 401, San Marcos, TX 78667
