Healthy Pets Healthy Streets

The goal of the Healthy Pets Healthy Streets initiative is to provide free spay/neuter and wellness services such as a microchip with lifetime registration, a rabies vaccination, and a one year pet license to as many pets within a target neighborhood as possible. The purpose is to focus these efforts in one area for several months, and then expand into a new area. In addition to the major events held, members of the Healthy Pets Healthy Streets coalition have provided transport services for pets in the neighborhood between the dates of major events. This effort is funded entirely by private donations. Every donation goes toward spaying or neutering one more animal.
