Pit-Fix Spay/Neuter Program
**THE PIT-FIX PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD AS WE WORK TO RAISE MORE MONEY TO FUND THIS VERY WORTHY CAUSE! PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TODAY***
The Humane Society of Loudoun County (HSLC) is proud to be able to offer Pit-Fix - a low cost spay/neuter program for Loudoun County resident dog owners with Pit-Bull or Pit-Bull Mixes. This program will include a spay/neuter for dogs up to 80lbs, rabies, distemper, and bordatella vaccination, and a microchip. Your cost for this program is only $25 which covers the processing of your application. HSLC will be billed for remainder.
Pit-Fix is funded entirely by donations from the community through the Jared Dodson Memorial Fund. Funding is limited and we may, at times, have to place a hold on new applications until we receive additional funding.
The Jared Dodson Memorial Fund was established in 2012 to celebrate the life of Jared Dodson and his love of all animals, especially his beloved Pit Bull Terrier – Kamora. Jared’s life was cut way too short, but with this fund his legacy of caring for animals continues. To learn more about this wonderful cause, please visit the Jared Dodson Memorial Fund link below. If you would like to donate and be a part of the cause that meant so much to Jared, please go to our Donate page and complete the online donation form. ***Please indicate in the Comment Section that you would like your donation to be used for this fund.***
