The Camden County Animal Shelter in Blackwood, NJ, received a $24,000 grant in June for the shelter's "Spay Our Strays" clinics that offer spay/neuter for feral cats and low-cost spay/neuter for cats belonging to any resident of Camden County.
The grant was made possible by the GreaterGood.org's Gifts That Give More™ program hosted on The Animal Rescue Site and distributed through the Petfinder.com Foundation.
“The high cost of spay/neuter services is the most common reason pet owners give for not altering their animals,” says Niki Dawson, Executive Director of the Camden County Animal Shelter. “Consequently, nearly 80% of animals coming into our shelter are intact. The financial burden of altering over 3,000 animals per year is overwhelming. Thanks to Petfinder.com Foundation and The Animal Rescue Site, CCAS will be able to provide spay/neuter services for every animal that leaves the shelter for its forever home.”
“Animal welfare groups are often strapped for funds,” says Elizabeth Neuschatz, executive director of the Petfinder.com Foundation. “So we're particularly grateful that GreaterGood.org has stepped up with grants to assist with spay/neuter programs that could easily be cut back during tough economic times.”
