1916 - Actor George Montgomery, 1991 Newhall Walk of Western Stars honoree, born in Montana [story]


logo-angeldogsResidents of unincorporated areas of the Antelope Valley can get their dogs fixed for as low as $35 and cats for just $45 at the AngelDogs Foundation (www.angeldogsfoundation.org) mobile spay/neuter clinic. The non-profit clinic provides high quality, low cost services at convenient locations in the Antelope Valley.

Acton, Agua Dulce, Lake Los Angeles, Hi Vista, Redman, Sun Village, Pearblossom, Crystalaire, Juniper Hills, Llano, Valyermo, Leona Valley, Green Valley, Lake Elizabeth, Three Points, Fairmont, Lake Hughes, Littlerock, and unincorporated sections of Quartz Hill, Antelope Acres, Lancaster and Palmdale are all included in the voucher program.

“The economy has made it very challenging for many people to abide by the County of Los Angeles ordinance and to be able to afford spay or neuter for their pets,” said Lisa Tipton, director of AngelDogs Foundation. “We are very grateful to County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control and Supervisor Michael Antonovich for allowing us to help the pet owners that really need it the most.”

DACC provides a $50 voucher for qualified low-income dog owners. Supervisor Antonovich granted extra funding for an additional voucher program through DACC that can be used for dogs or cats. Both vouchers can be combined to lower the cost for residents to get their pets fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.  For more information about DACC’s voucher program, contact the Department’s Spay and Neuter Division at: (562) 256-7104, Monday to Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Qualifications for Los Angeles County vouchers includes proof of low-income status such as government assistance (SSI, unemployment, disability, Medi-Cal, WIC, TANF, California Advantage Card), including seniors over 60. The AngelDogs Foundation call center will pre-qualify pet owners upon scheduling an appointment. Physical proof of residency and low-income status is required at time of spay/neuter appointment for the Los Angeles County DACC vouchers. Vouchers are available directly from AngelDogs Foundation.

Four to six million homeless dogs and cats are killed at United States shelters every year. That number is not only heartbreaking, it’s expensive. In California alone, $300 million taxpayer dollars are spent catching, housing and disposing of unwanted companion animals. Too often the shelters are blamed, when this is a community-wide issue.

“Spaying and neutering pets is the proven solution to reducing the pet overpopulation problem,” Tipton said.

For schedule information, visit www.angeldogsfoundation.org or call 888-504-SPAY (7729).
