HHS helps with largest Big Fix

Harlandale High School played a big role in SNIPSA’s largest Big Fix event to date.

According to SNIPSA Executive Director Dr. Shannon Espy, the clinic served a whopping 386 animals. A total of 225 dogs and 161 cats were spayed, neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped at no cost. That’s the most amount of animals they’ve served at one time in more than 50 clinics.

“The Big Fix was a grand success,” Espy said. “We had a wonderful turnout of volunteers as well as the student led group at Harlandale – PAWS. They were so helpful distributing flyers, setting up and tearing down the event, and basically assisting with whatever we needed.”

Health Professions and band students were also on site to lend a helping hand.

SNIPSA believes that sterilizing more dogs in the community will save more animal lives by reducing the number of pets entering city shelters.

In October, Harlandale High School PAWS partnered with ROTC and hosted their first Big Fix, spaying and neutering a total of 337 animals for community members. 

“The event gives the student volunteers the opportunity to observe surgical preparation, the surgical procedure itself, and recovery,” HHS Paws sponsor Chris Winslow-Lewis said. “It has been a wonderful learning experience for our high school students.”
