Just in case you’ve been living in a cave the past few weeks, we here at DACC wanted to drop you a line to let you know that we intend to have a great Summer, and we want you to share it with us!
The festivities kick off next week with our first-ever, “HOOTERS for NOOTERS” spay and neuter event! Before we go forward, though, we want to send out a HUGE thank you to the NOOTERS Club ™ of Michigan. They have worked with other HOOTERS for NOOTERS events in Michigan and Las Vegas and have been instrumental in the success of increasing the number of spays and neuters in both areas. We’re proud and thrilled to have them on board for our campaign here in Denver as well.
For those of you who want to support DACC, our spay and neuter campaign and the NOOTERS Club, take a moment to view their website and choose from their many different products designed to raise awareness about spaying and neutering. And here’s the kick, for any purchases from the Colorado area, $5 will go towards the Downtown Animal Care Foundation, the non-profit that helps pay for spays, neuters and other veterinary care for pets. You get a kicking t-shirt or tank top and you also help support a wonderful organization that helps keep pets happy and healthy and you fight pet overpopulation as well! What a deal!
Also, a big thank you to John Davidson at the Denver Post who wrote an great article on the campaign. In case you missed it, here is a little taste of the article. Click on this link here to read the entire story.
How do you get men to spay, neuter their dogs? Try free beer, hot wings and Hooters girls
By John Davidson
Statistics show that men are notoriously reluctant to get their dogs fixed, despite the widely recognized benefits of the surgery.
Most men own male dogs and it seems guys are afraid that neutering them will take away Fido’s masculinity.
How do you overcome that?
The solution of one Denver veterinary clinic is to go where the men are and offer them beer, hot wings and girls in skimpy outfits.
That’s the logic behind “Hooters for Nooters,” which has been launched in the four Denver area Hooters restaurants.
The goal, says spokesman Chris Gallegos, is to do 1,000 spays and neuters by the end of summer by
going after the male demographic.
Teaming up with Hooters – which has done the program previously in other states – is the Downtown Animal Care Center (DACC), a low-cost provider of spays and neuters.
DACC chose to focus on men after a recent PetSmart study showed that men between 25 and 50 were among
the least likely to get their pets, particularly their dogs, spayed or neutered.
“We just decided to go where the men are to get the message out,” said Colleen McManus, DACC practice
“A neutered dog lives a longer, healthier life, they’re less likely to stray, they’re more obedient and of course it helps reduce the number of homeless pets in Denver which saves taxpayers money,” McManus says,
You can read the rest of the story just by clicking on the link above. We’re planning a wonderful event, complete with a HOOTERS girls car-wash, giveaways, merchandise for sale, appearances by KBPI personalities and of course DACC will be there signing up folks for spays and neuters.
If you sign up at the event, you’ll get a BOGO coupon for a free domestic beer. And, of course, the original deal is still in effect. Once you get the procedure completed, you’ll get a BOGO coupon for ten free boneless wings! Beer, girls, radio personalities, a car-wash, free stuff and spays and neuters, it’ll be an amazing day.
Our goal this Summer is to sign up 1,000 spays and neuters and we know that with your help, we can achieve this goal. The event will take place at the Lakewood HOOTERS at 6th and Kipling. The fun starts at noon and winds down around 5pm. So you’ll have plenty of time to get down there and participate and sign up your pet for a spay or neuter.
Help us make this the best HOOTERS spay and neuter event ever by telling your friends and making sure you carve out some time to come visit us!
We’ll be looking for you there!
