TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Altered Tails announced their April special event "Primp Your Pit" happening the month of April, according to a news release. 

In April, pit bull and pit bull mix owners can have their dogs spayed or neutered for only $20 including vaccinations at the Altered Tails Barnhart Clinic on Valencia (225 E. Valencia Road).  

"Female dogs can have as many as three litters a year, and puppies can breed as young as four months old. Most people don’t want to see their female dog get pregnant over and over again, nor do they want to deal with their male dogs marking," said Ellen Clark, Altered Tails executive director, in the release. "Pit Bulls are one of the most ‘at risk’ animals in Pima County. We want to prevent them from entering shelters and help ensure that they live long, happy lives. Fixing pit bulls is the only way to reduce their homelessness. Our 'Pit Bull' campaign will serve as a gentle reminder to pit bull owners to get their dogs fixed."

Pit bull parents who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the Primp Your Pit campaign when they schedule their appointment. This campaign is based on availability, there are 600 slots for "Primp your Pit" sterilizations at Altered Tails clinics.

The event is sponsored by PetSmart Charities
