Two Long Beach nonprofits partner to open new low-cost spay/neuter veterinary clinic

By Kate Karp

Since 2013 Fix Long Beach has been serving area residents with free or low-cost spay/neuter for their pets, vaccinations at a minimal charge and free microchips. Since the all-volunteer organization opened its figurative doors, it’s held mobile clinics in different Long Beach parks and has spayed and neutered over 12,000 cats and dogs and vaccinated and microchipped countless others.

What a great time to adopt!  Now through the end of this tumultuous year 2020, Friends of Long Beach Animals will be sponsoring the adoption fees from the Long Beach Shelter, Long Beach Animal Care Services.
