LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Lafollette Veterinary Service was a busy place Tuesday. It was the first day of two Angel Days.  It all got under way Tuesday morning at 8 am and lasted nearly 12 hours.

Angel Day was created in the memory of Angel of the Stand Up for Pits Foundation.  It is a national Pit Bull type dog spay and neuter initiative fully funded by the Stand Up for Pits Foundation.

The foundation paid 100 percent for the 20 Pit Bulls that were spayed or neutered on Tuesday. It included the spay and neuter service, a rabies vaccination, a DAPPv, some take home pain meds and an E-collar if needed.

Savannah Berry and Kristin Miller were busy working the front desk getting the Angle Day patients checked in. Savannah is checking in Kateline Hatmaker and her dog Daisy.
Certified Vet Tech Lindsey Suttles administers the anesthesia to Alona, part of the prep for the procedure.
 Dr. Jennifer Godfrey, also known as Dr. J, has been a licensed veterinarian since 2007 and a veterinarian at LVS since 2016. Dr. J’s studies include time in Dublin, Ireland.
This is the list of names of the 20 dogs scheduled for Tuesday. All were checked in at LVS by 10: 30 Tuesday morning.

This event was a collaboration of Spay Campbell County Tennessee Pets, La Follette Veterinary Services and Stand Up for Pits Foundation.

Another Angel Day is set for Tues., April 26, at La Follette Veterinary Services. Twenty Pit Bulls will be spayed or neutered at no charge. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 04/20/2022-6AM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)
