PetSmart Charities donates $50,000 to the Charleston Animal Society
In an effort to help spay and neuter animals in the Lowcountry, PetSmart Charities donated $50,000 to the Charleston Animal Society.
Charleston Animal Society says with the help of the donation, the organization can offer low-cost spays and neuters for Pit Bull type dogs.
According to CAS "the pittie mix" is one of the most common dogs in the Lowcountry and this grant will help control the population.
"We are thankful PetSmart Charities gave us this opportunity to reach out to under-served areas of our community," said Charleston Animal Society Director of Anti-Cruelty and Outreach Aldwin Roman. "This funding will allow us to provide vaccines, check-ups, and surgeries to 500 dogs."
PetSmart Charities aims to proactively prevent pet homelessness through increased spay and neuter efforts. With the help of animal welfare partners, such as Charleston Animal Society, PetSmart Charities has funded over 1.7 million spay and neuter surgeries in the U.S. since 2009.
