Mountain View Humane Spay/Neuter Clinics, with locations in Roanoke and Christiansburg, was awarded a $2,000 grant by the Community Foundation of the New River Valley to create the Prevent Another Litter Subsidy – Pulaski County (PALS-P).
The money will be used to support our PALS-P program to help subsidize the cost of spaying and neutering the animals of seniors living on a fixed income, the animals owned by low income families, and free-roaming cats in Pulaski County. Each individual that applies for funding will fill out an aid application form verifying income and pay a small portion of the total surgery fee.
MVH’s services are targeted to serve pets from low income households, pets being readied for adoption, and stray free- roaming animals.
“By providing an affordable, accessible solution to pet overpopulation, we can reach that portion of the public who otherwise would not be able to afford the surgery,” Corrie Prater, the clinics’ marketing director, said in a news release.
