Emancipet Expands to Houston with Low Cost Vet Clinic


March 20, 2015

Emancipet is expanding to Houston, its first location outside Central Texas, thanks to a new partnership with the City of Houston.

The initiative was spearheaded by Council Member Robert Gallegos and made possible with the support of Mayor Annise Parker, Mayor Pro-Tem Ed Gonzalez and Council Member Oliver Pennington. The City is investing $260,000 in Emancipet’s new Houston clinic.

Emancipet will offer low-cost spay/neuter and preventive veterinary services in their customized 48-foot gooseneck trailer which will be located at the nonprofit Neighborhood Centers Inc. which will be located in Houston’s East End, a low-income neighborhood where the stray animal problem is the most dire. The clinic will be able to spay/neuter 7,000-8,000 animals per year, and provide approximately 10,000 preventive care visits.

“Our partnership with Emancipet will further complement the city’s efforts to reduce the number of stray dogs and cats,” said Mayor Parker. “In fact, BARC (Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care) modeled its own new spay/neuter strategy on Emancipet’s model and pricing system, which has been successfully implemented in Austin, Pflugerville and Killeen.”
