Volunteers for Animals gets $15K grant from Petco Foundation for its spay/neuter program

Press release:

Volunteers for Animals of Batavia is getting a $15,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its Community Spay/Neuter Program.

The Petco Foundation investment will help to provide low-cost spay and neuter of companion cats and dogs as well as community/feral cats to all residents of Orleans and Genesee counties, regardless of income levels.

Volunteers For Animals is a nonprofit organization that works in partnership with the Genesee County Animal Shelter serving Genesee County.

As of the end of 2019, Volunteers For Animals assisted in the spaying and neutering of more than 4,200 cats and dogs by providing low cost spay/neuter vouchers to residents in Orleans, Genesee and Wyoming counties.

It has spent more than $350,000 in funding these surgeries through donations, grants and voucher copays, and is committed to reducing the number of “unwanted” cats and dogs in our community.

For more information about obtaining a spay/neuter voucher from Volunteers For Animals, visit www.vol4animals.org, email us at [email protected] or call 716-472-8968. Vouchers will not be sold at the Shelter.
