Project Description:   

EmanciPet is the only nonprofit in Austin that is a 100 percent spay/neuter clinic providing low-cost surgeries from both mobile and stationary animal hospitals. Since 1999, over 35,000 animals have been sterilized at EmanciPet’s mobile hospital, while the organization has prevented births and subsequent unnecessary deaths of at least 537,500 dogs and cats at the stationary hospital. EmaniciPet’s goal is to make Austin the nation’s second “no kill” city in the United States by 2008 by expanding its spay/neuter service capabilities. The Impact Austin grant will complete the outfitting of one additional surgical unit at their stationary hospital. It will also improve access to the facility and its services through the use of two additional transport vehicles that pick up and return pets to targeted neighborhoods. This will allow the organization to increase the number of spay/neuter surgeries it performs each year by 7,500, resulting in fewer euthanizations of animals.
