The Palm Springs Animal Shelter is excited to announce a new partnership with Luke’s Legacy Foundation to achieve more lifesaving surgeries for community pets in 2016. The organizations will kick off their partnership on January 24 and 25 during the first Fix-A-Friend Low/No Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic of the year, funded by Luke’s Legacy Foundation.
Shelter Director Dr. Shayda Ahkami shares, “We are very grateful for LLF’s support, working together we will save many lives. Spaying and neutering is a critical tool in stopping the flow of animals into our shelter. As the only public no-kill shelter in the Coachella Valley, we have a responsibility to be here for our pet community, on all levels. Thanks to LLF, we will be able to offer more services this year.”
Melanie Scherer, founder of LLF says, “Luke’s Legacy Foundation knows the impact of offering spay and neuter services to the community is huge. Even fixing one pet makes a difference, and we are very excited to know that we will fix nearly 100 pets at our January clinic with Palm Springs Animal Shelter.”
The Fix-A-Friend clinic is open to all Coachella Valley residents. Those needing services are urged to visit the shelter’s website for upcoming dates, or call the shelter to make an appointment. A complete list of services, rates and future clinic and mobile dates can be found on the Palm Springs Animal Shelter website, www.psanimalshelter.org. Call 760-416-5718 for appts.
