FurEver Home, Inc. has been awarded a $6,050 grant from BISSELL Pet Foundation (BPF) for spay and neuter procedures for animals at our facility. This dedicated grant will help reduce the homeless pet population by preventing unwanted litters of stray cats and dogs in the community.
With thousands of pets abandoned each year, proactive spay and neuter procedures address the root cause of animal overpopulation by preventing unwanted births, freeing up shelter space for pets in need, and saving pets from potential abandonment or euthanasia. BISSELL Pet Foundation awards dozens of grants every year to shelters across the country, including us, to help protect and save animal lives. In 2021, more than $1.3 million was provided through grants to shelters for spay/neuter procedures.
“We understand how important it is to support preventative efforts that allow our partners to save lives through safe spay and neuter procedures,” said Cathy Bissell, founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “We also strongly encourage all pet owners to be responsible and have their pets sterilized, to further ensure healthy pet populations.”
Spay/neuter procedures cost our organization an average of $100 each. This grant will help us cover nearly 60 spay/neuter procedures this year!
