Pop Up Clinics

Vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchips

Animal lovers rejoice as 1,000 spay/neuter surgeries are performed in Trans-Pecos communities!

Partnership Serves Pets In Far West Texas

As of mid-March, 1,000 cats and dogs will have been sterilized by international non-profit group Animal Balance and their Trans-Pecos partners, The Far West Texas Rescue Coalition.

The partnership between these organizations formed in December of 2021, when together they began holding monthly, two or three-day MASH-style spay/neuter clinics in Presidio, Marfa, Alpine, Terlingua,

Marathon, Pecos, and Fort Stockton. Together the groups are providing low-cost and free spay/neuter to help the area humanely control its cat and dog population.
