PetSmart grant earmarked for spay-neuter procedures

Special to the Courier

A grant from PetSmart Charities®, currently in effect, enables veterinary personnel with the Hill Country Animal League, 924 North Main Street, in Boerne, to offer free spay and neuter procedures to companion animals of Bandera County residents.
The $101,840 grant will sterilize 1,754 dogs and cats. County residents are urged to call 830-249-2341 to make an appointment for a free surgical procedure.
"This is a really good offer and will end when the grant funds run out," said Jackie Palmer, Hill Country Animal League executive director. "We encourage pet owners in Bandera County to take advantage of these free spay-neuter surgeries. This is the first step to reducing the pet population in the community." For more information, call 830-249-2341.
Hill Country Animal League is a 501(c)3 organization that relies on grant funding and donations to offer free to low-cost sterilization services for local pet owners.
Established in 1994 as an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, PetSmart Charities, Inc. has become the largest funder of animal-welfare efforts in North America, providing
in excess of $165 million in grants and programs that benefit animal welfare organizations.
