As Bob Barker always said on The Price Is Right, "Always have your pets spayed or neutered." 

The Dawn Brancheau Foundation is sponsoring an event on Tuesday, April 19, to spay and neuter dogs and give rabies vaccines — for free — with no weight or breed restrictions.

According to the nonprofit organization Dolly's Foundation, the one-day event is open for Orange and Seminole county residents only, and proof of residency must be brought to the event.  

The surgeries will be performed on the day of the event at Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando's Sanford location. Dogs of Orange County residents will have their surgeries done at the Orlando clinic.
