The Los Angeles Department of Animal Services has awarded The Lucy Pet Foundation a $500,000 per year contract to provide free mobile spay and neuter services to pet owners in low income areas of the city.
“We are grateful and excited about our partnership with Los Angeles Animal Services and look forward to performing our goal of 10,000 spay and neuter procedures throughout the city in the next two years,” said Dr. Karen Halligan, Chief Veterinary Officer for The Lucy Pet Foundation. “We are committed to stopping the excessive influx of animals going into the shelters.”
The Lucy Pet Foundation’s mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and the euthanasia of dogs and cats. Supported in part by profits from Lucy Pet Products, the foundation pursues its mission through a fleet of mobile spay and neuter vans.
“I am thrilled to welcome The Lucy Pet Foundation to our team,” said Brenda Barnette, general manager of LA Animal Services. “As one of the fastest growing non-profit animal assistance organization in our city, The Lucy Pet Foundation will bring the highest quality state-of-the-art spay and neuter services to our underserved areas. The organization has exemplified the kind of dedication and capability our department needs to assist and further our ongoing efforts to reduce unwanted pet births.”
