Clinic receives $40,000 grant to fuel local spay and neuter efforts

(Newnan, GA) — The HELP Spay/Neuter Clinic today announced it received a $40,000 grant from PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, to help fuel its local spay and neuter efforts.

With the help of this donation, the organization will provide subsidized spay and neuter surgeries for owned animals of under-resourced communities in multiple counties surrounding Newnan including Heard County.

Funds will be used by the organization to provide 1,200 spay and neuter surgeries as well as for surgery costs.

“Making spay/neuter surgery affordable is key in reducing unplanned litters,” said Cindy Leopard, Clinic Manager of HELP Spay/Neuter Clinic. “Together with PetSmart Charities, we can prevent unplanned litters and, ultimately, reduce pet homelessness in Coweta and surrounding counties.”

PetSmart Charities aims to proactively prevent pet homelessness through increased spay and neuter efforts. With the help of animal welfare partners, such as The HELP Spay/Neuter Clinic, PetSmart Charities has helped facilitate over 1.7 million spay and neuter surgeries in the U.S. since 2009.

“We are proud to support the HELP Spay/Neuter Clinic’s low-cost spay and neuter initiative,” said Sima Thakkar, regional relationship manager at PetSmart Charities. “Thanks to our donors nationwide, pet owners throughout Coweta County and surrounding areas will have opportunities to access basic veterinary care.”

The HELP Spay/Neuter Clinic is a non-profit veterinary hospital providing high volume, high quality, low cost spay/neuter surgery, as well as yearly vaccines, for all dogs and cats.

All income levels accepted.

Financial assistance is available to those receiving SSI, disability, food stamps, WIC, or proof of low income.

Inquire about specific neighborhood targeted grants that may be available in specified areas.
