West Texas nonprofit creates shelters for pets

MIDLAND, Texas — Fix West Texas is known for neutering and spaying cats and dogs to help curb intake and reduce euthanasia rates. They also provide shelter for our animals as well.

“They’re just like us, if you can imagine spending the night outside in the freezing cold, that’s a lot of suffering and so that’s what we’re trying to prevent,” said Karen Patterson, President of Fix West Texas.

The nonprofit is creating barrel shelters to make sure no dog has to be stuck in the cold.

“Our main goal is to just keep all animals as warm and free from suffering this winter as possible,” said Patterson

Each barrel shelter costs about ten dollars to make. Fix West Texas has enough supplies,  but they need more hands.
