The Stokes County Humane Society, Danbury, has received a $1,000 Operation Grant from the PEDIGREE Foundation in partnership with Petfinder Foundation. Stokes County Humane Society is one of 150 shelters and rescue groups nationwide to receive a grant.
PEDIGREE Foundation Operation Grants are intended to assist in funding basic operation costs, such as facility/structure, medical, transportation, spay/neuter and other basic needs to help make dogs more adoptable.
“We believe that all dogs deserve to be loved and cared for,” said Debra Fair, PEDIGREE Foundation president. “Our partnership with Petfinder Foundation, allows us to make the greatest difference in the animal shelter community through these operational grants.”
Toni Morgan, Petfinder Foundation program director, said that Operational Grants are often the most difficult for shelters to secure. “Grants like these from PEDIGREE Foundation for basic needs are particularly helpful right now when animal welfare groups are facing tough economic realities like the rest of us.”
To be eligible for the grants, animal welfare organizations must be members of Petfinder.com, the largest database of homeless pets on the web. Stokes County Humane Society posts its pets at www.petfinder.com/shelters/NC669.html.
