Spay Pasco gets $5,000 grant

Spay Pasco has received a $5,000 grant from PetSmart Charities to perform more sterilization surgeries for feral cats. The organization's 2-year-old feral cat sterilization program successfully alters an average of more than 400 cats per year to fight the area's homeless pet overpopulation problem. The grant will allow Spay Pasco to offer feral cat surgeries at a discounted price of $15 (normally $25); the program also includes a rabies vaccination. The cats can be taken to several participating clinics throughout the county to be spayed or neutered. "We hope that this will increase the total number of spay/neuter surgeries preformed," said Diana Mattox, president of Spay Pasco. "Since one female cat and her offspring have the potential to produce thousands of additional feral cats, every sterilization surgery truly does make a difference in our community."
