The Concord-Merrimack County SPCA received a $10,000 grant from PetSmart Charities to increase the number of animals they are able to spay/neuter before adoption. This funding will enable the non-profit shelter to decrease the number of intact dogs and cats adopted over last year by 25 percent.
“We are excited to think of the difference this grant will make in preventing unwanted litters in our community – defenseless animals who may well end up on our streets dying from disease and starvation,” said Lin O’Bara, Director of Development at the Concord-Merrimack County SPCA.
