Local Animal Welfare Organizations Partner Again to Fix 113 Community Cats for Free

Operation Kindness I Community Cat Fix Event

As temperatures rise in Texas and spring weather enters the forecast, North Texas animal welfare organizations brace for kitten season. During this time of year with more daylight and warmer weather, cats are more likely to become pregnant with kittens, increasing the kitten population in the area and at local shelters.  

To prepare for this time of year, local animal welfare organizations Operation Kindness, Dallas Animal Services (DAS) and the SPCA of Texas partnered to host a Free Community Cat Fix Event at Dallas Animal Services headquarters at 1818 North Westmoreland Road in Dallas. The May 10 event was a continuation of the three organizations’ first event on April 12, which serviced 112 cats.  

The event, funded by Dallas Animal Services, was hosted at DAS in mobile units provided by the SPCA of Texas. Operation Kindness and DAS provided veterinarians and vet techs for the event, making the goal of servicing 100 community cats (stray cats that are not personal pets) in one day possible.  

“We had such a great response from the community for our first Community Cat Fix Event, and it is our goal to help pets in the greatest need,” said Ed Jamison, CEO of Operation Kindness. “We’re committed to helping reduce pet overpopulation through high-volume, high-quality spay/neuter events that have a significant impact on the number of homeless pets. Collaborating with our partners at Dallas Animal Services and the SPCA of Texas means that we can continue to combine our resources to have an even greater impact.” 

The event provided free spay/neuter surgeries for 113 cats, with no limit on the number of cats each person could bring. Each cat received a free spay/neuter surgery as well as a free microchip, ear tip and rabies vaccination.
