From 2012-2017, DCAP’s Spay Day program, utilizing clinic facilities at Dallas Animal Services, provided more than 10,000 free and low-cost surgeries to pets of Dallas residents and hundreds of free surgeries to the City of Dallas for DAS pets.
Nonetheless, despite the recommendations of the BCG report commissioned by the Animal Shelter Commission and endorsed by City leaders, Dallas Animal Services has notified us that no DCAP-sponsored Spay Day clinics may be scheduled at the DAS facility because no detailed, written contract can be located.
Our apologies to everyone affected by this decision – our supporters, our volunteers, and particularly those responsible pet owners who love their pets and believe in the importance of spaying and neutering.
We have worked hand in hand with Dallas Animal Services, providing free and low-cost services for Dallas residents, community outreach, and staff and volunteer support for many years and had hoped to continue offering our services while an MOU was being developed. Hopefully, this will only be a temporary setback for DCAP, for spay/neuter and Dallas residents.
