A beloved teacher is honored by loved ones with spay and neuter clinics in place of flowers.

San Diego, California  ̶  Family and friends have come together to remember and honor Christine Fax-Huckaby, a beloved teacher at Sweetwater High School, by reducing pet overpopulation. Two spay and neuter clinics on the SNAP Neuter Scooter are being sponsored in Christine’s honor at Sweetwater High School. These spay and neuter clinics will help students best care for their pets, while decreasing pet overpopulation and providing a healthier, happier life for the dogs and cats in their care.


They say the body is 70% water, but for Christine Fax-Huckaby, it was all heart. Christine loved every person and every animal she ever met. For 23 years, Christine touched the lives of students and staff as a public-school teacher and mentor in both Lemon Grove and Sweetwater. She believed in the ability of each student to achieve their inner greatness, and never let them settle for less. She had just as much love for animals. Whether they were hers or not, Christine loved every fur baby she ever saw. She was constantly rescuing dogs and cats, finding them their fur-ever home. Although truth be told, a lot of times that home ended up being her own! Christine’s legacy lives on in her friends, family, students, colleagues, and rescue animals.
