The Big Fix for Big D project

High euthanasia rates in the city of Dallas have been an ongoing issue (in fiscal year 2010-2011 the city euthanized over 20,000 healthy and adoptable pets), but a new initiative called “The Big Fix for Big D” is a positive step toward lowering this number.  The project is a result of The Dallas Foundation working with other funders and animal welfare groups in an effort to reduce the number of abandoned animals by sharply increasing the number of pets sterilized. The three-year, $3 million project is set to launch by mid-2012. The goal is to raise the number of spay and neuter surgeries performed at nonprofit clinics from about 6,400 annually to 20,000 annually within two years.

  1. You are on the right track with spay/neuter work. It is the only compassionate way to reduce shelter intake. The choice selected by many shelters claiming no kill is turning animals away. Stay on target.
