“Balls are for fetch,” a planned West Davis mural will read. “Spay and neuter your pets.”

Artist Joachim West and his girlfriend, Teresa Megahan, came up with the design after their landlord, Mike Clifton, approached them about creating a mural on their building at 520 W. Davis.

Megahan says they decided to make the mural a public service announcement because they see stray dogs in their neighborhood every day.

They are asking friends, including Brian Scott and Cohn Drennan, to help them paint. And they are asking the public to help them pay for supplies, including paint, via Go Oak Cliff.
