A $40 spay and neuter program for Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixed breeds. Thanks to a generous gift from the late Dierk D Peters of Duke Pacific, we are proud to provide this service to our communities.
This program is open to all residents currently within the organization’s service area. We provide animal care and control services to the cities of Chino, Chino Hills, Claremont, Covina, Diamond Bar, Glendora, La Verne, Montclair, Ontario, Pomona, San Dimas, West Covina and the unincorporated areas of San Bernardino County including West End, San Antonio Heights and Mt. Baldy. Age and weight restrictions apply.
This program is intended to help curb the amount of Pit Bulls and Pit Bull puppies entering the shelter every year.
Dog must be a Pit Bull or a predominately Pit Bull mix and be 4 months of age or older. The dog must be owned by an individual — no rescue groups, foster organizations, shelter animals or strays will be allowed to participate. All dogs must be licensed or have applied for a license for their pet.
Space is limited and is subject to a first come first serve basis. Fill out a Spay/Neuter Appointment Request Form to request a spay/neuter appointment for your pet(s).
1. Exercise your dog every day. By exercising your Pit Bull for just 15 minutes a day you can help release some of their pent up energy that could otherwise lead to behavior problems.
2. Don’t leave your Pit Bull alone with any other animals. Although your dog might appear to be well behaved among other animals, Pit Bulls are known for animal aggression.
3. Watch your dog around small children. Small children have a tendency to irritate pets more so than adults, so be sure to carefully watch children around your Pit Bull.
4. Always have your dog on a leash. Obey leash laws and keep your pet secure in public places at all times.
5. Supervise your dog and don’t allow them to roam freely. Even though your Pit Bull may be obedient something small could set them off, which could result in them getting lost or even getting hit by a car.
6. Spay or Neuter your pet. Many undesirable behaviors, such as urine-marking or aggression, can be curbed by getting your pet spayed or neutered.
7. Train your Pit Bull. It’s extremely important for Pit Bull owners to know how to control their dog, and with obedience training both the owner and pet can gain useful knowledge.
8. Avoid dog parks. Consider taking your Pit Bull to dog socialization classes instead where they can get to know other animals in a safe, secure environment.
9. Socialize your dog. By socializing your dog you are exposing it to a wide array of people and animals, which allows the dog to feel comfortable and safe in many different situations.
10. Keep your dog safely confined. Pit Bulls are often the most frequent breed at animal shelters due to their ability to jump high and escape from backyards, so consider putting in a fence that’s at least 6 feet tall.
