COVID-19 Update

While we are all dealing with the new ‘norm’ in response to the COVID-19 virus, both the SPCA of Texas and Spay Neuter Network remain dedicated to the community of Southern Dallas.

As of March 18th, available vaccine and spay neuter services will be changing due to the recommendations of the CDC and local government officials.

Spay Neuter Network’s  clinics will be closed through April 30. You can find out additional information at spayneuternet.org/covid19. FLEA and HEARTWORM PREVENTION can be ordered ONLINE at this time by emailing info@spayneuternet.org.

SPCA of Texas’ is suspending public clinic operations until at least April 5th, 2020, and will re-assess based on the guidance received from local and national public health officials within that window. You can find more information about the changes at SPCA of Texas at www.spca.org/covid19.

As the information and service availability changes we will update you as quickly as possible.

Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have advised that there is no evidence that companion animals can spread the virus and, “there is no justification in taking measures against companion animals which may compromise their welfare.”

  • Prevent Female Dogs from Going into Heat
  • Avoid Care and Expense of Puppies
  • Avoid Fees & Penalties
  • Reduce Animals Suffering in the Street
  • Male and Female Dogs will Likely Live Longer

Spaying and Neutering is the way to FIX our dog problems.

SPAY/NEUTER MISCONCEPTIONS

MYTH:

Females should have one litter before spaying.

TRUTH:

The best time to spay a female is before her first heat. This also greatly reduces the threat of breast cancer.

MYTH:

Behavior and personality are altered after surgery.

TRUTH:

Changes in behavior are positive. These include reduction of territorial spraying, less fighting, and less urge to roam.

MYTH:

Animals become fat and lazy after surgery.

TRUTH:

In most cases, animals become fat and lazy because they’re overfed and inactive.

MYTH:

Males don’t need to be neutered because they don’t have litters.

TRUTH:

Un-fixed males and females are the cause of overpopulation.
