The Los Angeles Department of Animal Services has awarded the Lucy Pet Foundation a $500,000 per year contract to provide free mobile spay and neuter services to pet owners in low income areas of the city.
“I am thrilled to welcome the Lucy Pet Foundation to our team,” said Brenda Barnette, general manager of the Department of Animal Services. “As one of the fastest growing non-profit animal assistance organizations in our city, the Lucy Pet Foundation will bring the highest quality state-of-the-art spay and neuter services to our underserved areas.”
“We are grateful and excited about our partnership with Los Angeles Animal services and look forward to performing our goal of 10,000 spay and neuter procedures throughout the city in the next two years,” said Dr. Jaren Halligan, chief veterinary officer for the Lucy Pet Foundation. “We are committed to stopping the excessive influx of animals going into the shelters.”
