This grant helps the Stray Animal Adoption Program in many ways, such as: (1) Socializing animals for adoption; (2) providing children with a good foundation of the importance of responsible pet ownership, as well as demonstrating (and discussing) giving back to the community and community advocacy; and 3) allowing SAAP to contribute to the decrease of pet overpopulation by teaching hundreds of children the importance of spay/neuter. Pictured: Girls on the Run chose SAAP to be their community-service project. Our outreach coordinator went back several months later and picked up lots of donations from the girls.
