Fixing Montgomery County
We are ecstatic to announce that our FMC program has broken records for 2021. We spayed/neutered 911 pets in our local communities. We could not have accomplished this without our Veterinary partners at Bear Branch Animal Hospital and Stone Ridge Veterinary Services (Willis) and Laurel's House Mobile Unit/Fido Fixers. We cannot wait to see what the remainder of 2022 will yield. As of August 2022, we have provided 535 spay/neuters and continue to have events and appointments scheduled throughout the year.
We are proud to partner with the above organizations to provide spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchipping and HW testing for animals in specific areas of Montgomery County. It has been a dream come true for us to bring veterinary services directly to communities where we see high rates of stray animals. We know that by eliminating the unwanted litters, we reduce the strain on our local shelters. At the beginning of 2021, we held on average, one event per month. We quickly discovered the need was greater than we imagined and increased this to two events per month, which has continued through 2022 (and are scheduled through early 2023). We are seeing an increase in costs across these supplies and labor charges in 2022, but we hope that we are able to count on our donors, sponsors and grant funding to help us continue these efforts.

Fixing Montgomery County
LSAWL exceeded all expectations in 2021 by completed 911 spay/neuter surgeries (as indicated above). Accomplishing this feat is not an easy task and comes with a rather large price tag. Thanks to our generous donors, sponsors and community partners we were able to cover the $86,000 associated with these veterinary expenses.
San Jacinto Pound
LSAWL partnered with the San Jacinto Pound by donating $4500 towards Spay/Neuter services that helped pets get adopted quicker at their shelter location. This grant provided free or low cost spay/neuters, vaccines and a microchip. We are able to help areas outside of our local community that we know are working toward our same goals with the support of individual donors. Thank you! ❤️
Donation toward transport bus 2021
The wonderful non-profit Texas Animal Society in collaboration with LSAWL and The Sanctuary of Haafsville (in Pennsylvania) worked together to transport over 200 dogs out of the Houston area. LSAWL donated $6000 towards the costs associated with transportation, health certificates, and certifications to make this process possible. It is amazingly sad to think that areas in the Northeast USA are looking for animals to adopt, when all we need to do in Houston is look out our window.
