SPAY & NEUTER NETWORK

They walk door to door in targeted zip codes to offer free spay/neuter services, vaccines and education on pet ownership. They are a 501 (c) 3 organization and have the Hope Mobile (named after Saving Hope's Hope) that drives to accessible parking lots where many can walk their pet to whether to vaccinate or sterilize. They also help with the feral cat program. Since inception, the Spay & Neuter Network has performed over 30,000 free spay/neuters with our help.

MEDICAL COSTS FOR LOCAL ANIMALS
First and foremost, we are a foundation that was created because of Hope. She is one of many animals that represent the need for a marked improvement in animal welfare in Fort Worth and the surrounding areas. Our first focus is the overpopulation problem in the area. Our partnership with the Spay & Neuter Network as well as the Texas Coalition of Animal Protection has drastically reduced the animal population. However, the FWAC as well as the HSNT have also reached out many times when they are in need. There are not enough rescue organizations to help, and because of that we offer to help case-by-case basis. We post the animals on our website and also work with local and out of town rescues to assure each animal gets the home they deserve. At this time, we are averaging spending per animal around $750 (whether s/he is in need of a sterilization, dental, skin issues, sickness, etc.)
