The City of Barstow Saving Lives!

Our event on 3/24/23 was amazing!!

The City Of Barstow joined forces with the High Desert Animal Coalition to stop pet overpopulation!

We are proud of the city leaders!! This is how you create solutions to shelter overcrowding. You lead your community by providing ways for the responsible pet parents to spay and neuter!!!

Yesterday the room was filled with excitement! Lots of wiggle butts, lots of hard working volunteers, and of course the caring staff of Angels Touch Mobile Hospital ❤️

The Mayor of Barstow Paul Courtney, and City Council Barbara Rose, along with their PIO Miriam Munoz came out to personally thank all our efforts and to present Doctor Angela Beeks and long time HDAC Volunteer Coordinator Gina Romero with a community recognition award for their years of service helping community animals in need.

Doctor Angela Beeks is an amazing vet who along with her team work hard to bring mobile medical resources to areas in need. Doctor Beeks has been a huge part of this movement to help end pet overpopulation. Congratulations Doctor Beeks we couldn’t do it without you!

Volunteer Gina Romero was awarded her community recognition award for having saved thousands of animals in need for the last 30 years. Gina Romero joined the HDAC in 2017 and became our first spay and neuter Community Coordinator. She has worked endlessly to help coordinate events such as this one.

We are so proud of all our volunteer, and we are overjoyed with the response from all our responsible pet parents!

We are proud of the Leadership in the city of Barstow for joining the HDAC to end pet overpopulation!!

We would like to thank the Knights Of Columbus for once again graciously hosting the mobile clinic in their building.

A very special thanks to volunteer Arlene and Pat from Route 66 Rescue and many other who are putting in endless hours to make this possible.

Thank you Maribel for all your efforts to make yesterday a success 🙏

On average the HDAC through the combined efforts of many is currently Spaying and Neutering about 20 animals a week. This week the number is closer to 50 animals. We are also providing free vaccines to anyone in need!! This is a huge campaign and we hope in less than 2 years the city of Barstow will not have a pet overpopulation problem!

Join us because we can’t do it alone!!!

Donate. Volunteer. Advocate.
