Pit Bull Spay & Neuter Mobile

by Villalobos Rescue Center

Summary

Villalobos will create a state-of-the-art mobile spay neuter clinic would target low-income, under serviced areas in California which have high populations of backyard bred Pit Bulls or high rates of euthanasia at local shelters. Across the country, Pit Bulls and Pit mixes take up 50% - 75% of the shelter dog population due to backyard breeding and pure neglect and respect for life. A spay and neuter mobile clinic could greatly reduce this issue through affordable procedures.

Challenge

Every day, Pit Bulls are born into the world which are unwanted. They are the number one breed of dog to die in animal shelters in the US, and 75% of US shelters euthanize this breed without attempts to adopt. This is totally preventable. Many people want to have their pets spayed or neutered, but they cannot afford to do so. This is especially daunting for people in rural areas. Over breeding increases the number of unwanted puppies and shelters are being overwhelmed by pit bull mixes.

Solution

A mobile spay and rescue clinic will not solve the problem outright, but it will keep many dogs from being born into a life of misery, where they are unwanted and often euthanized. According to SpayUSA.org, for every dog who is spayed, 67,000 dogs are kept from being born. Female dogs can have two litters a year every year of their lives. Neutering male pit bulls will result in a lower rate of pregnancy for female dogs, and will reduce the number of unwanted litters in the US

Long-Term Impact

This project could potentially be a model project for other groups to emulate or for major donors to donate to in their area. Anytime that something is shown in the media or on television, it often is a spark of flame that is needed to start someone into thinking about doing something similar or better in their own area.
