Money For Cats Helps Pound Friends
PRAIRIE GROVE — Friends of Prairie Grove Pound has received two donations recently to help with several of its projects.
The Arkansas Animal Rescue Foundation of Little Rock has provided Friends with a very generous grant to help fund its low cost spay/neuter clinics for a one-year period.
Friends of Prairie Grove Pound sponsors these clinics on a monthly basis to residents of the local area with the stated goal of decreasing the over population of cats, both feral and domestic.
The non-profit organization has altered about 1,500 cats at the clinics during the past 3½ years.
“During the same period, the intake of feral and community cats into the city pound has dropped by 50 percent,” said Jim Glover with Friends of Prairie Grove Pound. “We can now say, with great appreciation, that future clinics will be made possible in part by a grant from the Arkansas Animal Rescue Foundation.”
The Friends also received a $2,500 donation from the Animal League of Washington County. This donation will go toward the costs of building a stand-along structure that will be used for the low-cost spay/neuter clinics.
