Clinic facilities

Fix West Texas will soon have a permanent clinic

MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) -Fix West Texas has purchased 2.6 acres of land and will use that land to build a new clinic.

The new clinic does not have an exact opening date, but it will be located on West County Road 77 behind the Mid-Cities Church.

It should be 70 to 75 hundred square feet.

Fix West Texas provides animal services at an affordable cost, but one problem they face is a lack of space to perform surgeries.

As well as funding to start this project.

Lori Vanhoozer, who is one of the co-founders, says this new location is not just to have a bigger space, but also to have a permanent location.

“We have seen through our work over the past three years that there is a definite need for low cost sterilization and vaccination. We’re going to build a big clinic that’s going to help us have a permanent presence here in West Texas for the future,” Vanhoozer said.

Fix West Texas has been trying to build a clinic since its start in 2019.

They have raised funds through events, campaigns and donations, but their goal remains the same, which is to reduce the rate of euthanasia in West Texas shelters.

“We do this by neutering and neutering to prevent litters from entering the shelters. We also want to reduce the disease we see in our shelters and around town and advocate for Distemper and Parvo vaccinations,” Vanhoozer said.

Vanhoozer says they don’t know how much money they’ll need to start the clinic, but they plan to raise $1.5-2 million.

Fix West Texas will host a fundraising campaign to raise funds for the new clinic.

She says they are developing a plan for their new facility and are currently looking to raise funds to get it started.

They have no plans to make any changes to their services at this time.

Vanhoozer says their customers have been very positive about their new installation.

“People already want to know when we’re moving, especially people on the west side. It’s gonna be a little closer for them,

Vanhoozer says their vets perform between 30 and 40 surgeries a day, so a larger facility will have a big impact on their day-to-day operations.
