BALDWIN PARK, CA — In a landmark   county-wide collaboration, the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal   Care & Control will partner with “Dancing with the Stars”   Carrie Ann Inaba & her Animal Project Foundation, The Lucy Pet   Foundation, along with Baldwin Park Mayor, Manuel Lozano to announce and   kick-off the first “PURRfect FIX SPAY & NEUTER voucher program   available free of charge to L.A. county resident cat owners.

Marcia Mayeda, the Director of Los   Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC) said, “Last   year, the Department cared for 30,000 cats.  It is our goal to reduce   the numbers of unwanted cats by making spay/neuter surgeries more available.    We are grateful that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors provided   $103,000 for us to make these services more affordable for our residents, and   look forward to working with cat owners to assist them in obtaining these   valuable services.    She added, “We are grateful to   our generous partners, including Carrie Ann Inaba and her Animal Project   Foundation, along with The Lucy Pet Foundation’s Mobile Spay & Neuter   Clinics, Bark Avenue Foundation, and Mission Animal Hospital. “Dancing With The Stars”   celebrity judge and animal supporter, Carrie Ann Inaba, has stepped up to   support the effort and has arranged for her AnimalProject Foundation to   cover the additional cost of the $60.00 surgeries for the first 100 customers   on Oct. 16th. Carrie Ann Inaba commented, “One   of the most important aspects of what we do with The Animal Project   Foundation begins with how we control the pet population to begin with.   Ensuring that animals are spayed and neutered and that the service is   available to more people is essential and I am so happy to be a part of the   solution to our overpopulation problem.”

The Lucy Pet Foundation’s mobile spay  & neuter van will be on the site that day starting at 7:00am, performing   feline spay & neuter services for over 100 cats. L.A. County is currently   launching a program with the Lucy Pet Foundation to perform spay and neuter   services to cats.

This groundbreaking program to be   announced at the 10:00am press conference at Morgan Park in Baldwin Park on   October 16, will operate simultaneous mobile spay/neuter and vaccine clinics   in Lancaster, East Los Angeles, and Lake Los Angeles as well.
