Houston has some great free spay/neuter events, however, we are not reaching the super impoverished dog owners. They do not have transportation, and $5 of gas is a big deal.
We all want to save any dog from a life on a chain, the best way is to spay the moms living on chains. HOUSTON HUTS 4 MUTTS strives to offer a free spay to any owned chained dog including transportation. We are having a problem trying to pick the dogs up the morning of the spay. It is not safe to go into the neighborhoods in the predawn hours, and it is hard to get the owners to answer the door at 6am. More often than not, we are scrambling to fill the appointment and have missed several opportunities due to not being able to pick up the dog.
We need to build a 4 kennel area to pick up the dogs the night before and give the dog a place to at least recover for 48 hours. As it is now, the dogs go right back on the chain within hours of the spay. We do offer a crate, but we know most are put back on the chain as soon as we drive away.
The least we can do is provide these dogs a tiny bit of comfort. I can't imagine how miserable it is to be bred, carry and nurse puppies in the barbaric conditions they live.
