Union Bank of Tehachapi recently awarded the Have a Heart Humane Society a generous grant. The money will be used to provide more spay and neuter surgeries for pets owned by local residents.
Have a Heart has put on several spay-neuter and vaccination clinics in Tehachapi for low income individuals, seniors with fixed incomes and military veterans. A total of 35 to 39 cats and dogs were spayed or neutered at each clinic. They were also given Rabies vaccinations, microchipped and licensed. In addition, dedicated volunteers have helped out at four other clinics in Tehachapi and Mojave sponsored by Supervisor Scrivner.
We are committed to making Tehachapi the first no-kill community in Kern County, which means that cats and dogs from our community will not end up in a Kern County shelter and die because they were unwanted.
We see a day not so far in the future when that goal can become a reality and Tehachapi will become known and praised as a pet-friendly community.
