Upstate Rescue Offers Free Spay/Neuter Clinic for Pit Bulls

Posted: Updated:
ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. -

One Upstate animal rescue said they’re doing everything to help stop pit bull overpopulation.

Freedom Train Animal Rescue Transports is offering a free spay and neuter clinic for pit bulls through March.

They tell 7 On Your Side they’ve teamed up with the Anderson County Humane Society to help perform the surgeries.

Organizer Rhonda Sims said national statistics show pit bulls are the hardest breed to adopt out of a shelter. She said they have a one and six hundred chance of being adopted out once they are in the shelter.

Organizers hope reducing the population so the community may not see them as a nuisance.

“People in the community contact us saying they’ve seen a pit bull running around loose or showing up at their business and they want us to help. We’re unable to most of the time so getting these dogs fixed so they don’t enter the shelters is the best way to help them in their fight right now,” said Sims.

Sims said more than 25 have already been fixed. Her goal is to help 50 pit bulls.

You can also help donate to the rescue Freedom Train Animal Rescue Transports here.

The Anderson County Humane Society will also work with anyone in the upstate who needs their pet spayed or neutered. To get information or make an appointment, please call 864-367-7220
