Dallas, TX, March 3, 2013– Kaufman County Animal Awareness Project (KCAAP), a high-volume, high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter clinic for dogs and cats continues its free program to help Dallas pet owners care for their pets. KCAAP, a partner in the Big Fix for Big D project in Dallas, whose focus is to help sterilize an additional 30,000 dogs and cats for low income pet owners who reside in eight targeted zip codes, is offering transportation services and MASH style clinics (Mobile Animal Spay Hospitals), along with Saturday clinics to accommodate pet owners in East Dallas.
KCAAP President and founder of the charity, Bonnie Hill, said about this continue opportunity: “I’d like to thank the Companion Animal Funders Coalition who continue to make this program possible. With a new focus area of just 8 zip codes, we will be able to make a much bigger impact on shelter intake. KCAAP is taking a strong focus on three particular zip codes – 75227, 75217 and 75228 – by walking neighborhoods, visiting schools to education parents and children on the importance of spay/neuter, and offering free vaccination clinics to help owners care for their pets.”
KCAAP has been serving primarily low-income rural and urban area residents since 2005. Its main regional clinic is located in Crandall, Texas where they perform over 20,000 surgeries a year. Since 2005, KCAAP has performed more than 65,000 spay/neuter surgeries. “Pet overpopulation, besides being a humane issue, is also a public health issue, particularly here in Texas, which has been on a statewide rabies quarantine for the last 6 years. KCAAP Community Outreach Coordinator, Jay Acosta, commented, “More pets that are vaccinated against rabies, plus fewer strays due to spay/neuter surgeries, equals a safer community for everyone, regardless of whether you own a pet or not.”
KCAAP is offering 200 FREE pet vaccines at their clinic on Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 1:30 – 3:30 at the Stewpot in downtown Dallas, on Young Street.
Kaufman County Animal Awareness is a non-profit 501(c) 3 charity organization created to end pet overpopulation through aggressive sterilization programs throughout Northeast Texas. KCAAP is not affiliated with any local county, state, or governmental agency, and is currently located at the corner of US highway 175 and FM 148 in Crandall.
