Best Friends Animal Society®, in partnership with PetSmart Charities®, is pleased to announce that CAWS has been awarded a grant for helping low income dog owners in Delta spay/neuter their pets.
CAWS is a participating member of the No More Homeless Pets® Network, a program of Best Friends Animal Society that offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.
"This grant project will help address one of the critical components in the homeless pets issue. By helping families afford to spay/neuter their companion animals we can make a significant impact on the number of unwanted litters that are born each year," said Ellen Gilmore, manager of Best Friends' No More Homeless Pets Network.
CAWS president Rand Kokernot said, "This grant means that we can add this low-cost spay/neuter project to help reduce the numbers of unwanted litters that end up in shelters and keep pets with families. Our goal is to perform 200 spay/neuter operations over the coming 12 months. We appreciate Best Friends' and PetSmart Charities' support to make our spay/neuter project in Delta a great success."
This lifesaving grant is part of Best Friends Animal Society's mission of No More Homeless Pets®. Every day, approximately 9,000 pets are killed in shelters because they don't have a home. Best Friends and PetSmart Charities are committed to saving them.
Citizens for Animal Welfare and Shelter (CAWS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to animal welfare and rescue in Delta County. It is CAWS' goal to reduce the number of unwanted, homeless animals in our community through rescue, adoptions, spay/neuter programs and public education.blog comments powered by Disqus
