LA Animal Services, with the help of its various spay/neuter partner organizations (including Found Animals Foundation, the Heigl Foundation, Clinico, the Amanda Foundation Best Friends Animal Society, Coalition for Pets and Public Safety and the Sam Simon Foundation), is making a big push to make spay/neuter surgeries more available and more affordable to Angelenos this month. Various parts of the city are being targeted for special attention and various special events and promotions are going on to get the attention of L.A.’s companion animal guardians.See the attached flyer promoting the effort. Please feel free to share with your lists, community contacts, your friends and family, and anyone else you think would benefit from seeing it. Some details are as follows: Free Surgery Weekend Feb 19-20
