The nonprofit Altered Tails is on the front lines of helping the Valley shelters reduce the intake of animals, along with the euthanasia rate, by providing free and low-cost spay and neuter services. Since 2012, Altered Tails and six other animal welfare groups have reduced the intake of animals at Valley shelters by 40 percent and the euthanasia rate by a whopping 86 percent, thanks to an initiative called Fix.Adopt.Save.
