The shelter has been selected to receive a #SpayTogether grant, a stimulus fund administered by The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). The fund will provide surgery subsidy support grants, on-ground assistance, training in high-quality/high-volume spay/neuter procedures, and discounted veterinary supplies to shelters and veterinary clinics affected by COVID-19.
Last month, the HSUS and other animal welfare organizations launched the initiative to provide 50,000 spay/neuter surgeries over a three-month period to eliminate the backlog brought on by the current pandemic. Participating organizations will be able to offer discounted surgeries to the public, providing assistance to underserved communities across the country.
Using $6,390 in #SpayTogether grant funds over a three-month period, the Brenham Pet Adoption Center will pay for a total of 40 dogs and 102 cats to be altered, including shelter animals, pets owned by community members, and feral or community cats.
As this is a subsidy support grant, the shelter will need donated funds to supplement the cost of some surgeries. Anyone interested in donating can contact Animal Services Manager Allison Harper at email@example.com or 979-337-7391.
