City of Chico Animal Shelter: Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The grant funds were used to help offset the cost of the spay/neuter copay for our adult cats. This reduced the adoption fee from $60 to $29.

By providing reduced adoption fees, this helped us place some of our older cats who are always competing with the kittens for adoption during the summer.
