It’s Hip to Snip Fund Drive, February 16-29

Help raise $20,000 in just 14 days to bring spay/neuter services to more animals in need!

The 2016 It’s Hip to Snip Fund Drive kicks off TODAY!

The Ellen B. Gray Memorial Fund has challenged us to turn a generous $5,000 donation into $20,000 in just 14 days to bring spay and neuter services to more animals in need.

All funds donated during the It’s Hip to Snip Fund Drive now through February 29 will go directly to the ARL’s community spay and neuter programs including the Spay Waggin’, the ARL’s mobile surgical unit.

The ARL receives no government or public funding to keep animals safe and healthy in their community — YOU make this important work possible!


Last year, more than 5,595 cats, dogs, small animals, and livestock were spayed or neutered through the ARL’s mobile Spay Waggin’, shelter medicine, and feral cat programs…and there’s still more to do in 2016 to prevent pet overpopulation!

“There are too many cat and dogs in our communities that don’t have homes,” explains Dr. Edward Schettino, vice president of animal welfare at the ARL. “If we can increase spay and neuter rates, we can keep more animals from getting left out in the cold.”

The fund drive is part of our “It’s Hip to Snip” animal awareness campaign during National Spay and Neuter Awareness Month this February.  Through radio public service announcements, billboards, social media, events, and most importantly — YOUR SUPPORT– we want to break down the barriers to getting pets spayed and neutered.

AS A SPECIAL THANK YOU… DONATE $35 or more by midnight TODAY, February 16 and you will automatically be entered to win one month of unlimited classes at Pure Barre Boston*!
