Doing our bit to help Dallas residents do the right thing
Next Saturday, June 30, Dallas Companion Animal Project is proud to host “Because We Can”, a targeted outreach event in Pleasant Grove to provide education, engagement and a low-cost vaccination and microchip clinic for residents of targeted neighborhoods.
This is a partnership with Kaufman County Animal Awareness Project – who has performed 53,723 spay or neuter surgeries to date in their efforts to reduce pet overpopulation. KCAAP is offering a MASH (Mobile Animal Spay Hospital) clinic as part of the The Big Fix for Big D initiative, where $20 includes surgery, a complete set of vaccinations and City registration for a family’s dog or cat.
There are so many factors that contribute to guiding positive change in a community’s attitudes, values and behaviors; and community outreach is particularly critical in high-need areas, where education provides a foundation for responsible pet guardianship, while financial assistance can ensure engagement and forward momentum.
