Grant Proposal:
Chatsworth, GA, and the surrounding area of Murray County is an economically depressed area where the local animal control facility has a high kill rate and much of the local population knows little about the consequences of pet overpopulation. With $25,000 from Pepsi, Saving Shelter Pets can significantly reduce the animal shelter population in this area. We plan to conduct ten free spay/neuter clinics in the coming year (for family pets and also feral cats captured by local residents with our assistance). By doing this, not only will the turn-in rates at animal control be lowered with fewer litters born, but we will also be able to educate pet owners about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets and the basics of responsible pet ownership. Previous clinics of this type have been successfully run by Saving Shelter Pets, and all were very well-received by the participating residents.
