Petsmart Charities Funds Pit Bull Spay/Neuter Campaign



Published:

Petsmart Charities's "Primp Your Pit" campaign promotes spay/neutering of pit bulls.

Sixty-three nonprofit spay/neuter clinics in the United States are offering $20 spay and neuter surgeries for pit bull terriers in August through “Primp Your Pit,” a promotion sponsored by Petsmart Charities Inc.

The program, part of a $1 million Petsmart Charities grant program, aims to provide 6,750 surgeries to pit bulls in 30 states.

“Our national grant program gives much-needed help to pit bull terriers that are especially at risk,” said Susana Maddalena, executive director of Petsmart Charities. “Through the ‘Primp Your Pit’ promotion and our ongoing efforts to make affordable spay/neuter surgeries available to the public, pet parents can prevent unwanted litters and ensure their pet lives a long, happy life.”

Participating clinics receive grant money to help lower the cost of spay and neuter surgeries and help pay for marketing materials and advertising, Petsmart Charities reported.

A searchable database of participating clinics is available at www.petsmartcharities.org through the Spray/Neuter link. The database is a collaborative effort of Petsmart Charities and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
