Sammie’s Friends, the organization that operates the Nevada County Animal Shelter is announcing the “Don’t be a Turkey- Spay/neuter your pit bull” event. Sammie’s Friends Director, Cheryl Wicks says they are having a difficult time adopting out all the pit bulls that end up in the county shelter and to alleviate the problem at the source they are offering the spay neuter program.
“During that campaign, you can call any veterinarian in Nevada County, they’ve all agreed to help. They will do either a low cost or no cost spay and neuter for you. So if you have no money, you can still get your dog spayed or neutered or if you have some money, you can pay for part of it and the rest of it will be paid by either Sammie’s Friends or Pound Puppy Rescue. We do this together. So she pays half and I pay half.”
For every pit bull you spay or neuter you will be entered into a drawing for one chance to win $250. Wicks says the more pit bulls you spay/neuter, the better your chance of winning.
“If you have a mother and a litter of eight or ten puppies, you get to put your name in there 10, 11 or 12 times, however many dogs. I’d like to let people know that you can get your puppy spayed or neutered as early as eight weeks old.”
Call any vet in town for a low cost no cost appointment. Transportation is also provided if needed.
