Pit bull families: you’ve still got time to get in on the “Primp Your Pit” promotion, the result of a $1 million national spay/neuter grant program from PetSmart Charities®. Working to save the lives of the country’s most at-risk pets, this August promotion is offering high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter surgeries at 63 clinics. For $20, pitties receive spay/neuter surgeries including a free nail trim. In all, the a goal is to reach a total of 6,750 pit bull terriers in 30 states combined.
“Our national grant program gives much-needed help to pit bull terriers that are especially at risk,” said Susana Della Maddalena, executive director of PetSmart Charities, Inc. “Through the ‘Primp Your Pit’ promotion and our ongoing efforts to make affordable spay/neuter surgeries available to the public, pet parents can prevent unwanted litters and ensure their pet lives a long, happy life.
Each year, about 8 million pets end up in shelters and 4 million of them – about 11,000 a day – are euthanized. Many of these homeless pets are a result of accidental litters from pets that are not spayed or neutered.
