Primp Your Pit
Did you know that spaying (females) or neutering (males) your pet can prevent them from developing mammary tumors and certain cancers, such as testicular and ovarian?
For only $20, your Pit Bull or Pit Bull mix can be spayed or neutered at the SAHS during the month of August! If needed, a rabies vaccine and nail trim are included. To make an appointment, call (210) 424-7595 or visit SAhumane.org/spayneuter.
Attention! For Primp Your Pit, a $20 deposit is required (which is the cost of the spay/neuter surgery). Please pay via PayPal and provide transaction ID in the "Other Info" box when you fill out the spay/neuter appointment form! If you do not keep your scheduled appointment the deposit will not be refunded.
We hope to see you and your Pit Bull soon!
Do You Have PTSD?
The South Texas Veterans Health Care System and the SAHS are conducting a collaborative research study to explore whether adopting a dog from the SAHS might benefit Veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
To be eligible for this 6-month study, Veterans need to have had a dog previously but not to have had a pet in the last 12 months. There are also other requirements, which study staff will be glad to discuss with potential participants. The adoption fee is waived and 8 weeks of obedience training are provided at no charge. Veterans are responsible for the other costs of caring for their pet, except for veterinary care, which is provided free of charge during the study. Participants will receive compensation for their time.
If you are a Veteran with PTSD or know one who might be interested in participating in this study, please contact Dr. Ana Allegretti, the study coordinator, at (210) 617-5300 ext. 16079. Visit SAhumane.org/PTSD for more info!
