Black announces 19 Recipients of the Spay and Neuter Grant as part of the Dog and Cat sterilization program
Commissioner Gary W. Black today 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 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 $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
