TCAP Receives $6,500 Grant For Fort Worth Spays & Neuters

Texas Coalition for Animal Protection receives $6,500 Grant from The Helen D. and R.E. Wallace Foundation Fund at North Texas Community Foundation

Fort Worth, Texas – [November 10, 2023] DFW-based nonprofit Texas Coalition for Animal Protection received a $6,500 grant earlier this month to fund free spaying and neutering services for pets living in 14 Fort Worth zip codes.

The grant, generously provided by The Helen D. and R.E. Wallace Foundation Fund at North Texas Community Foundation, aims to curb overpopulation in areas indicated by the Fort Worth Animal Shelter as high-intake areas.

“With this infusion of funding, we will be able to continue this program, which has already had a tremendous impact on pet overpopulation in the area,” said Stacey Schumacher, TCAP Executive Director. “We are grateful that grants like these exist and are available to our North Texas community.”

TCAP’s Fort Worth Free program, now in its fifth year, offers pets residing in these ZIP Codes a free sterilization procedure and a rabies vaccine. Appointments are required to take part in the program, and residents must confirm their eligibility in one of the included ZIP codes via a utility bill or government-issued ID.

Eligible zip codes for this initiative are 76102, 76103, 76104, 76105, 76106, 76107, 76110, 76111, 76112, 76114, 76115, 76116, 76119, and 76140. 

To participate in this program, schedule your pet’s appointment by calling 940-566-5551.

3 Reasons to Vote for TCAP for Good Charlie's $10K Giveaway Grant

  1. A vote for TCAP is a vote for many animal rescue and shelter organizations.
    TCAP helps these organizations stretch their budget by providing low-cost spay/neuter services and low-cost wellness care to pets in their care. These services increase pets’ chances of adoption and decrease the number of animals the rescue/shelter intake in the future. Also, TCAP’s services help the shelters and rescues divert funds that would otherwise be used for wellness care for pets needing critical life-saving support.

  2. Your vote helps fund free services for community pets in need.
    We can offer free rabies vaccine events, free feral cat spays and neuters, and discount our already low-cost services because of grants like these. A vote for TCAP will be for pets in communities across North Texas.

  3. You love animals, and so do we!
    At TCAP, we’re a team of pet lover’s on a mission to end pet overpopulation and euthanasia in North Texas animal shelters. By voting for us, you will be joining us on our mission.
