(Covington, LA) – Following the success for the first launch of the “FixDat! Pit” in January 2014, St. Tammany Humane Society is excited to announce that they have opened an additional 100 spaces for low cost spays and neuters for Pit Bull Terriers and Pitt Bull mixes.

For a mere $15 per dog, the owners of 100 Pit Bulls and mixes who would not otherwise may not be able to afford the regular cost of the procedure can take advantage of this opportunity to have their pet spayed or neutered.

“Thanks to grant funding, an increasing number of Pit Bull owners can both take responsibility and act responsibly by spaying and neutering their pets,” explains Medical Director, Dr. Michelle Newfield. “Because Pit Bulls are one of the most euthanized dog breeds in America, by reducing the number of unwanted births in our community, we hope to reduce the number of unwanted Pit Bulls entering pounds and high-kill shelters.”

This opportunity it opened to owners living in St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, St. Helena and Washington parishes.

Reservations must be made in person, and the $15 fee paid at the time of booking to hold that spot. Every Pit Bull owner must present proof of residency and proof of their dog’s current Rabies and Distemper-Parvo (DHPP) vaccines in order to participate in the program.

For more information, please call 985-892-7387.

St. Tammany Humane Society is one of Louisiana’s largest, nonprofit (501)(c)(3), no-kill animal welfare organizations. Since 1953, STHS has been assisting the ailing, abused and abandoned animals of the Gulf Coast region, and relies solely on the financial support of the community for its ongoing success.

Thank you for your support.
