The Seattle Humane Society and PetSmart Charities are joining forces to provide FREE spay and neuter surgeries to pit bulls and pit bull mixes in King County. The dogs will also receive free vaccinations, and microchips will be available for $5. 

Seattle Humane says pit bull mixes now make up approximately 30 percent of lost, stray and abandoned animals in our community's shelters.

A $50,000 grant from PetSmart Charities will allow Seattle Humane to alter more than 750 dogs.

Seattle Humane says spaying and neutering not only improves a pet's health by eliminating reproductive cancers in the females and prostate cancer in the males, but the simple surgery has many other benefits too, such as making them less likely to roam and get into fights.

If you have an unaltered pit bull, or know someone who does, call the Seattle Humane Society at (425) 649-7560 to make an appointment.
