February's COTM is… Fix Long Beach, CA

February's COTM is…

Spay & Neuter Project, Long Beach, CA
Nominated by Corinna of TheFrogBag

Pet overpopulation is a severe problem throughout the U.S. Every day thousands of cats, dogs, and other types of animals are euthanized because animal shelters cannot house them when they become displaced from their homes. Help save a life. Spay or Neuter. 


We are a group of volunteers/citizens that dedicate our time and energy to make a difference in the city of Long Beach; a difference for our animals! We provide FREE spay/neuter surgeries to low income residents of Long Beach, CA. We are targeting people who are unable to afford having their pets fixed, even through a low cost clinic, as this segment of people need our help the most.

With the first successful event held on June 8, 2013 at Orizaba Park, Fix Long Beach made it possible for 38 cats and dogs in need to become spay or neutered. Without a doubt, the enormous financial burden that this program absorbs is astounding. Each free spay and neuter mobile clinic event performs up to 40 surgeries. The clinic is fully staffed, insured and each spay/neuter includes a microchip, pain medication and an e-collar. You can’t beat that!

The eight events scheduled thus far will spay or neuter up to 320 pets. On average a cat litter size is 3 to 5 kittens while a dog's average litter ranges for 4 to 6 puppies. Therefore, the group will avert nearly 1600 animals from unintentional births.

We are only able to do this with donations and are asking everyone for help. Anyone can support us and we are hoping to be able to organize many more spay/neuter events as possible.
