Option C: Is your dog a pit bull? Sign up for Fix-A-Bull!
Pet overpopulation is Fix-A-Bull! Happy Paws Happy Homes loves pit bulls, but sadly,
they account for as much as 25% of all dogs in our nation's shelters. Statistics show that only 1 in 500 pit bulls finds a
home for life. We find this unacceptable. The
Fix-A-Bull Program has helped 608 local
pit bulls get fixed to date.
We ask those of you who are considering inquiring about the Fix-A-Bull Program to:
- only ask for these funds
if you cannot afford the regular spay/neuter prices that we offer
- mention the Fix-A-Bull Program by name when you
inquire about getting your pit fixed
- be prepared to send us a photo of your dog
- understand that we may not
be able to assist pit mixes based on the available funding
Fix-A-Bull surgeries cost the pet parent
only $25 (includes spay or neuter, rabies vaccine and nail trim). The other 75% of the surgery cost is paid for by HPHH. Surgeries
are done at the Allegheny Spay/Neuter Clinic (offices in Woodland and Centre Hall). We can provide transportation between Huntingdon, Tyrone and the
Allegheny Spay/Neuter Clinic on one of our Spay/Neuter Days for an additional $10.
To sign your dog up for Fix-A-Bull:
1. Contact us to ask if funds are available.
2. Fill out and send us the form to the right.
3. Email a picture with your name and dog's name to email@example.com
or text one with your name to 814-360-7383.
