The Fayetteville/Lincoln County Animal Shelter and Humane Society of Lincoln County has just been awarded a large grant from PetSmart Charities, Inc. for the spaying and neutering of Lincoln County’s cats.

“We will be offering a limited number of vouchers and appointments in conjunction with the Southern Alliance Spay/Neuter Clinic to have county cats spayed and neutered for the low, low price of $3 per animal,” said Andria Jean, rescue/grant coordinator for the Fayetteville/Lincoln County Animal Shelter.

This will be offered for county residents only, and proof of Lincoln County residency will be required to be eligible for this program.

“Don’t wait until it’s too late to ‘fix’ your family pet,” Jean added, noting that arrangements can be made by calling the shelter today at (931) 433-3726 to get the “Feline Fix”.

PetSmart Charities Inc. is a nonprofit animal welfare organization that saves the lives of homeless pets. More than 400,000 dogs and cats find homes each year through their adoption program in all PetSmart stores and their sponsored adoption events.

PetSmart Charities grants more money to directly help pets in need than any other animal welfare group in North America, with a focus on funding spay/neuter services that help communities solve pet overpopulation. Pet Smart Charities is a 501(c)(3) organization, separate from PetSmart, Inc.
