Humane Society receives grant

YOUNGSVILLE - The Franklin County Humane Society has announced it has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its low-cost spay and neuter program, SNIF.

FCHS is a nonprofit organization founded in 2002 by volunteers who realized the overpopulation and stray animal problem in Franklin County needed to be addressed.

Since the group started, volunteers have saved over 1,000 animals from county animal control facilities or neglectful situations.

FCHS has also helped over 500 people spay and neuter their pets, which directly impacts the problem of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens who usually wound up in an animal control facility.

The Petco Foundation investment will help to fund thousands of spay and neuter surgeries for low-income pet owners, preventing the pets from multiplying and improving the pet's overall health.

"The Franklin County Humane Society realizes that, in order to save as many animals as possible, we have to rescue animals from bad situations, and also do what we can to prevent them from ever getting into those situations.

"Unaltered pets can produce hundreds to thousands of offspring in their lifetime, and there are simply not enough homes for these animals. Thanks to the dedication of our wonderful volunteers and the PetCo grant, the SNIF program will be able to prevent thousands of unwanted births, which in turn, will prevent unwanted deaths of homeless animals," said Kelly Larson, president.
