Emancipet just returned from their second trip to Puerto Rico to provide much-needed medical care and spay/neuter services as part of #SpayathonforPR. The trip was a huge, record-breaking success; the team spayed/neutered 1,137 animals in just 7 days in challenging conditions.
They’re heading back in February for the third of what will be four trips, to continue spreading their mission of providing low cost, high-quality treatments, and spay/neuter services to pets and people who love them. Emancipet is one of 26 organizations working with #SpayathonforPR, organized by The Humane Society of the United States

Emancipet, the nonprofit on a mission to make veterinary care affordable and accessible for all pet owners, was featured on “Cat Daddy” Jackson Galaxy’s television show My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet on Oct. 20. If you missed it, click here to stream the full episode.
The episode was shot in Philadelphia, where Emancipet has a clinic, and featured CEO Amy Mills and Emancipet staff working with other nonprofits and volunteers to trap/neuter/release community cats (also known as feral cats). It was an emotional and dramatic episode and was the finale of this season of My Cat From Hell. During the show, Emancipet announced a new initiative and fundraising effort to help even more community cats and their caretakers in Philadelphia and the other four cities where Emancipet has clinics, and to help Emancipet expand to even more cities across the U.S.
