Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes currently represent 30 percent of dogs living in area shelters.
Chihuahuas de Mayo 2014 will increase the number of dogs that are spayed and neutered in the county
and in turn help eliminate hundreds of unwanted dogs coming into our shelters each year.
"Our shelters collaborate with our community partners and highlight this promotion to prevent the
continued volume of unwanted Chihuahuas coming into our shelters", says Jan Glick, Santa Barbara
County's Director of Animal Services. "We want to help pet owners who might not have the money to get
their dogs fixed be responsible by spaying and neutering their Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes."
