Who We Are
GetYourFix.org is a project developed by FiXiT, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit based in Virginia. FiXiT is focused on eliminating the companion animal overpopulation problem in the United States by driving demand for existing spay and neuter programs. Via various methods, we are encouraging people who would be less likely to take advantage of these programs, and are making these programs more accessible for all.
Currently, there are more animals available for adoption than there are homes for them, resulting in over four million dogs and cats being euthanized in the U.S. every year. This number is less than it was 20 years ago, mainly due to the introduction of low-cost spay and neuter programs. Unfortunately, the number of animals euthanized annually has reached a plateau because there is still a significant segment of the population that does not sterilize their pets. We must make it easier to do the right thing!
We started the site after getting countless emails from people who wanted desperately to do the right thing but had fallen on hard times. In these emails, people pour their hearts out – most have taken in a stray, adopted an animal who was going to be dumped at the pound, or are trying to keep strays in their neighborhood from bringing more homeless animals into the world. Their hearts are in the right place – they just need a little help!
