Published 6:07 pm Tuesday, June 11, 2013
Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black recently announced 19 recipients across the state of the Spray 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 is 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 $2,500 to $7,500 each.
The Bainbridge-Decatur County Humane Society received a $7,500 grant.
“Often local communities have citizens that are burdened by the high costs of having their pets spayed or neutered,” Black said. “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.”
