Black announces 19 Recipients of the Spay and Neuter Grant as part of the Dog and Cat sterilization program

Commissioner Gary W. Black announced 19 recipients across the state of the Spay and Neuter Grant as part of the Dog and Cat Sterilization program. This is the first set of grants to be issued through this program. The Georgia Dog and Cat Sterilization Program are funded by the purchase of the Dog and Cat Sterilization Auto Tag, as well as by direct tax-deductible donations to the program. A total of $125,000 is being issued to 19 different organizations. Grants range from $2500-$7500 each. “Often local communities have citizens that are burdened by the high costs of having their pets spayed or neutered,” said Commissioner Black. “This grant will target and aid these communities across Georgia by keeping strays off the street and controlling the animal population in a humane manner.” If you are interested in donating or learning more about the Dog and Cat Sterilization Program, please visit http://agr.georgia.gov

Friends of Perry Animal Shelter is proud to announce that we have received $6,500, of this grant and will be using it to benefit the animals in the city of Perry. We will be working with Westmoreland and Slappy Animal Hospital, Perry Animal Hospital, and Smith Animal Hospital 
to use the grant to spay and neuter cats and dogs. We have already begun to compile a list of animals in need and once we get through the list we will take on as many more as the grant allows.
