Houston Humane Society set a city-wide record by neutering 621 male cats in one day at the annual Fix Felix for Free event on Wednesday, February 13. With the help of 50 staff members and 33 volunteers, the annual event was a huge success.
“It was all hands on deck at the Houston Humane Society’s Animal Wellness Center for this year’s Fix Felix for Free event,” said Monica Schmidt, Public Relations Coordinator of the Houston Humane Society.  “We are excited to be able to exceed our goal of 600 free cat neuters, and to once again help the Houston community cut down on pet overpopulation.” 
The veterinary staff at Houston Humane Society, led by Dr. Timothy Harkness, and the staff of All Cats Veterinary Clinic, owned by Dr. Cynthia Rigoni, all 621 cats were neutered, vaccinated, and sent home happy… well, at least with happy owners.
Fix Felix for Free occurs once a year, but Houston Humane Society offers low cost spay/neuter services daily.  Home to Houston’s only $30 spay/neuter clinic, HHS offers an affordable, safe and high-quality alternative for local pet owners.  All surgeries require an appointment, which can be made by visiting or by phone at 713-433-6421.
