Humane Society receives grant for Trap, Neuter and Return program

Best Friends Animal Society in partnership with PetSmart Charities has announced The Humane Society of Shenandoah County was awarded a grant for its Trap, Neuter and Return program for community cats in Shenandoah County as part of “Operation Catsnip.”

The Humane Society of Shenandoah County is a participating member of the No More Homeless Pets Network, a program of Best Friends Animal Society, which offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.

Through the grant, homeless free-roaming cats are sterilized using trap-neuter-return, the widely accepted, humane method of controlling populations of free-roaming cats. The cats are also vaccinated.

This lifesaving grant is part of Best Friends Animal Society’s mission of No More Homeless Pets. Every day, approximately 9,000 pets are killed in shelters because they don’t have a home. Best Friends and the No More Homeless Pets Network Partners are committed to saving them.
