ASPCA granted $ 132,400 to AnimalKind, NY to alter pets of low-income pet owners.

AnimalKind announced today to have received $ 132,400 grant from ASPCA to alter pets of low-income pet owners in NYS. 

“There are too many cats in dogs in shelters and not enough homes for them, as a result too many don’t find homes and are facing euthanasia as a method of animal overpopulation control. To reduce this number and prevent cats and dogs to proliferate into higher numbers of unwanted pets ending up in shelters, we offer low/no cost spay/neuter options to our low-income communities.,” said Katrin Hecker, Executive Director.

 “ Sadly, many families have no financial means to attend the medical needs of their pets, observes Mrs. Katrin Hecker. “These funds will help us to continue our important, life saving program to provide low/no cost spay/neuter to the public, in order to prevent more unplanned puppies and kittens to be born and to find good homes for the already existing pet population in shelters around as well as reduce euthanasia in shelters.

This grant will be used to provide low/no cost spay/neuter options to eligible low-income pet owners in our NYS communities. Proof of low-income is required (military, veterans, disability, NYS benefit cards).
