Mohawk Hudson Humane Society receives grants | News
The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society received two grants for the purpose of spaying and neutering animals in the Capital Region. Together, the grant money totals $30,000.
The money comes from the state’s Animal Population Control Fund, which is administered by the ASPCA. The funds are the result of surcharges on every dog license in the state (outside of New York City) as well as the state’s spay/neuter license plate.
Half the money will go to the society’s Feline Fix program which spays and neuters cats and the other half will go to the Buck-A-Bull program which is dedicated to sterilizing pit bull type dogs.
“We are very excited about this new funding,” said Brad Shear, MHHS executive director in a statement. “This grant money means we will be able to do even more to prevent the growing population of animals in the Capital Region and ultimately save more animals’ lives.”
Applications for the subsidized spay/neuter services are on the society’s website or applicants can call 518-434-8128 for more information.
