Guadalupe County resident Dorothy Jenkins likes animals just fine. But she doesn’t like them in unlimited quantities.
Jenkins has done more than her share toward keeping the pet population down in her neighborhood of Happy Haven. Since November, she has brought two dogs and at least four cats to be “fixed” at the Fischer Veterinary Clinic in New Braunfels. Some were hers, and some belonged to fellow Happy Haven residents.
As a woman who’s partial to furry critters, Jenkins figures one of the nicest things she can do for a friend or neighbor is pay for the neutering of a favorite pet.
She did it last fall for a next-door neighbor who had been sick. “She’d been in the hospital, and I had never taken her flowers, so I had the two cats done,” said the retired civil service worker, who moved to the Lake McQueeney area about three years ago. “I told her, ‘Every time you look out there and see one (rf your kittens, that’s your flowers.’
“You know, a decent outfit of flowers will run you around $25 or $30,” Jenkins mused. In retrospect, she feels that she gave her recuperating friend a better, more long-lasting gift.
Another neighbor’s dog became a guest at Fischer’s clinic shortly after bearing her first litter of puppies last month. Jenkins told Fischer she’d never got around to getting a Christmas present for
her friend Maxine Eignes, so she had the dog spayed instead. 4
“She came in season around Christmas. She’s a real cute little thing, and all these big old dogs were chasing her around,” said Jenkins, who tends to see things from the animal’s point of view.
Dr. Kent Fischer thinks Jenkins has come up with a unique idea; at least, he’s never heard of it before. Cynthia Phillips of the local Humane Society thinks it’s an idea worth spreading around.
“I wish I’d thought of it,” she admitted.
And Jenkins practices what she preaches. Her own puppy, recently acquired to replace a canine companion of 15 years, came off the assembly line just a few weeks ago. “She was just barely old enough,” said Jenkins.
The woman herself is in her 60s and has hearing problems. But that doesn’t stop her from working a small farm and milking her own cow.
“They wouldn’t let me get a pig,” she commented.
Dr. Fischer described Jenkins as “a little neighborhood hero that goes unsung,” as well as a character in her own right.
“She drives an old pickup. She chugs in here in her blue jeans and track shoes, and brings the neighbors’ pets," he chuckled.
“I have news; I’ve got a lot more for him,” said Jenkins, whose mother cat produced a litter before she could get around to getting her spayed. She now has eight cats on the place, and says they’re keeping plenty warm in the hay. But sooner or later, “I’ve got to bring some more of my cats over,” she said.
Garden Ridge sets vaccination clinic
The City of Garden Ridge will conduct a pet vaccination clinic this Saturday at City Hall. From 9 a.m. to noon, cats and dogs can get their shots and tags for only $5 a head.
The fee includes vaccination and city registration tags. Residents who have already had their pets vaccinated may bring a veterinarian's certificate

City Ordinance No. XVIII requires all dogs and cats within the city to be vaccinated against rabies. Pets must also be registered at City Hall and receive a license tag. City Councilmember David Hencshel notes that violation of this ordinance can result in fines of up to $500.
