Voiceless-MI of Ingham and Eaton County has been awarded a grant from Best Friends Animal Society to help fund their completely free “Fix-a-Bull” spay/neuter program.

“Pit bull terriers are among the most popular dogs in 47 states, and there are already plenty in shelters to love,” said Michelle Logan, NMHP Regional Specialist, Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah. “Spaying and Neutering is a wonderful way to support the guardians that love them, the best way to help shelter dogs find homes and essential to prevent more from entering the shelter system where 9,000 individual animals are killed in our country every day.”

This program is 100% free spay/neuter and rabies vaccine for pit bulls and pit bull mix/type dogs. To qualify you must be 18 years of age or older, a Michigan resident & the dog must be a pit bull or pit bull mix/type dog. This grant will help pay for 70 dog surgeries.

“We are grateful to Best Friends Animal Society for their support of our FIX-A-BULL program,” said Holly Thoms, President of Voiceless-MI. “We are excited to reach out to help a breed that is sadly the majority of dogs dying in Michigan shelters. We can stop these needless deaths by spaying & neutering our beloved pets.”

Since 2009, Voiceless has been working hard to fight the pet overpopulation problem and makes that one of their top priorities. In 2012, they were able to help fix 603 dogs and cats. In 2013, they have already helped to fix 664 dogs and cats that otherwise would not have been sterilized.
