Chihuahuas de Mayo 2015

Wee Doggies Get Spayed or Neutered for Free During May

“We can win the battle of overcrowded shelters by adopting these animals and by spaying and neutering [them],” said S.B. City Councilmember Cathy Murillo in 2012, the year Chihuahuas de Mayo was conceived. The sentiment remains true today, so once again, during the month of May, Santa Barbara county residents can have their Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes spayed or neutered for free at the following County Humane Societies: Santa Maria (349-3435), Santa Ynez (688-8224), and Santa Barbara (964-4777, x20), as well as through CARE4Paws (968-2273) and S.B. County Animal Services, Santa Maria (934-6968). Only 300 surgeries can be provided, so call for an appointment ASAP.
