Emancipet is a rapidly expanding nonprofit network of low cost spay/neuter clinics, on a mission to make spay/neuter services and preventive veterinary care affordable and accessible to all pet owners. The Houston clinic will spay/neuter 7,000-8,000 animals per year, and provide approximately 10,000 preventive care visits.
After six to nine months of operation, Emancipet will move into a brick-and-mortar space in the same neighborhood, and move the semi-permanent trailer to a new location in the city. By 2017, depending on the success of fundraising efforts, Emancipet plans to have three permanent locations in underserved areas of Houston, which currently has an estimated 800,000 to 1.2 million stray animals.
ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) donated the funds to buy and customize Emancipet’s gooseneck trailer, which launched Emancipet Killeen in 2013 and currently houses Emancipet Houston.
