"The Responsi-Bull Project" includes FREE spay and neuter, a FREE responsible pit bull ownership workshop, and FREE obedience classes.

The North Bend, Wash.-based Pawsitive Alliance says pit bulls have become the breed of choice for many irresponsible people, and as a consequence they are flooding animal shelters. An estimated 1/3 of dogs entering shelters are pit bulls or pit bull mixes, and 90 percent of those dogs will not find homes.
Beginning July 1, for a limited time, owners of pit bulls can have their dogs spayed or neutered free at the Coalition: HUMAnE Spay & Neuter Clinic in Tacoma. To schedule an appointment email or call (253) 627-SPAY. A picture of your dog must be emailed to or mailed to the clinic to schedule an appointment - Space is limited. The clinic is located at 2106 Tacoma Avenue S., Tacoma, WA 98402.
