2016 Spring into Action Spay/Neuter Contest
The first annual Spring into Action Spay/Neuter Contest was held April 1-29, 2016, to help rescues during the beginning of spring and “kitten season”. The contest provided spay and neuter grants to three winning U.S. animal nonprofit groups for a total of $4,500. Learn more about the contest here, as well as why we chose to offer a spay/neuter grant.
The first-place winner, Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary of St. Pauls, N.C., is a sanctuary for blind, FIV+ and FeLV+ cats. The group also works with the community to improve cat welfare and spayed/neutered 1,382 cats in 2015. As the first-place winner of the Spring into Action Spay/Neuter Contest, the group won a $2,500 grant to aid its efforts. Learn more about Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary by visiting this blog post.
