The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia has received $46,000 from PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare in North America, to help fund its spay and neuter efforts in Northeast Georgia.
With the help of this donation, the Humane Society will be able to offer up to 800 surgeries throughout 2017 for a reduced cost to target pets and pet owners.
“We are so grateful to PetSmart Charities for their dedication to saving lives through supporting affordable spay/neuter surgery,” said Julie Edwards, Humane Society executive director, in a press release. “The impact of this grant goes beyond just 800 surgeries — it will result in tens of thousands of companion animals who don’t wind up in shelters facing euthanasia.”
For more information about spay/neuter services at the Humane Society, or to schedule an appointment, call 770-531-6617 or visit www.HSNEGA.org. Surgery is by appointment only, and other basic wellness services are offered at the time of surgery for an additional fee.
PetSmart Charities aims to proactively prevent pet homelessness through increased spay and neuter efforts. With the help of animal welfare partners, such as the Humane Society, PetSmart Charities has funded more than 1.4 million spay and neuter surgeries in the U.S. since 2009.
