Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter gets spay and neuter grant

Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter is pleased to have received a grant from Best Friends Animal Society to conduct Low Cost spay and neuters for helping to reduce the number of animals entering Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter.

“This grant means that we can add this low-cost spay/neuter project to our efforts this year to decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats entering our local shelter,” said Deanna Myers. “Our goal is to perform 277 spay/neuter operations over the next year. We appreciate the support of Best Friends to make this low cost spay and neuter program possible.”
