Fix Georgia Pets in the Media

We’re turning up the volume across Georgia’s media outlets, sharing our mission to dramatically decrease the number of pets facing euthanasia in our overcrowded shelters through increased spay/neuter. By empowering organizations across every Georgia county with grants, we’re making it a little easier for each community to access low or no-cost spay/neuter services. And, in creating this statewide network of care and support, we’re ensuring every pet has a chance at a healthier, safer future.

11Alive News: Atlanta&Co

Our Executive Director Tricia Holder joined Atlanta&Co at 11Alive News in March/April for a three-part series about Fix Georgia Pets’ mission to bring low-cost spay and neuter to every Georgia county through our quarterly grants. In each segment, Tricia educated Georgians about how Fix Georgia Pets is making it happen.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

On April 9, The Atlanta Journal-Consitution reported about our awesome group effort with Georgia Pet Foundation and local artist Kyle Brooks to develop a new license plate that is “helping address chronic overcrowding at metro Atlanta animal shelters.” As Executive Director Tricia Holder shared, “On average, 5,000 license plates have been sold per month,”  which goes a long way in our mission to spay/neuter more Georgia pets!

Valdosta Daily Times

In March 2024, the Valdosta Daily Times recognized local artist Kyle Brooks for creating a new Georgia license plate to fund grants provided by Fix Georgia Pets. The license plate, a collaboration between the Kyle Brooks and Georgia Pet Foundation, is available for purchase at your local DMV, and all proceeds go to stopping the pet overpopulation and euthanasia crisis.

The Fordham Ram

On April 23, 2024, The Fordham Ram discussed Fix Georgia Pets as a role model for helping reduce the number of unwanted pets. In their article “Making Strides: How Fix Georgia Pets is Working to End the Cycle of Companion Animal Overpopulation,” they highlight the power of spay/neuter programs and point out our statewide approach and collaborative efforts as key to creating lasting change.

Simply Buckhead

Fix Georgia Pets ran a promotion in the March/April 2024 edition of Simply Buckhead to encourage Georgians to ‘Buy A Tag, Save A Life.’ In 2023, almost 20,000 unwanted pets were put to sleep due to a lack of space in overcrowded county shelters. This stat alone speaks to the critical need to spay/neuter every pet in every county across Georgia.
