Since 2006, Lori Weise of Downtown Dog Rescue has been running free spay/neuter dog clinics in Compton’s East Rancho Dominguez Park. On the second Saturday of each month, about 35 dogs who have appointments are fixed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Lori created this program specifically for Compton after hearing about the many strays in the area. She also learned that many locals want to have their dogs fixed, but they simply can’t afford it, or do not have transportation to a clinic outside the neighborhood. Each dog that comes in costs about $100; Lori has support from the Heigl Foundation, PetSmart and private donations to hire the AngelDogs Foundation’s mobile spay/neuter vehicle.
