LMHS President Beth Fedigan said in 2012 they opened a Spay/Neuter Clinic in Port Isabel that has performed over 400 surgeries since July.
Fedigan said LMHS treated 20 dogs for heartworms that would have otherwise been euthanized. She said 17 of those dogs have been adopted.
LMHS is also working with a group based out of Denver, Colorado. Dumb Friends has accepted 71 dogs from LMHS, Fedigan said most of the animals sent have been adopted.
The LMHS also hosted adoptions every Saturday, weather permitted, at the gardens next to the Light House Square in Port Isabel.
LMHS hopes to continue their efforts in 2013 with the help of others, Fedigan said. Monetary donations are not the only way to help the LMHS. She said time pet food and donating items to the resale shop would help continue their efforts.
Wags and Whiskers Resale Shop will be having a grand opening next Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. to celebrate their new location. All proceeds from items sold at Wags and Whiskers benefit LMHS. For more information call (956) 943-5647.
