Save-A-Pet Recieves a Grant From
The Build-A-Bear Workshop Hugs Foundation

Through its "Grants for Pawsome Causes," the Build-A-Bear Workshop Hugs Foundation has awarded a Spay/Neuter Pack project grant of $2,000 to Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center. The donation will be used to spay/neuter an increased number of dogs and cats prior to adoption.

Save-A-Pet provides an animal shelter for abused, abandoned, and homeless cats and dogs, and places them in loving permanent homes. Additional programs and services include spay/neuter for feral cats, medical care for pets, and therapeutic and humane education pet programs that focus on the importance of pet sterilization, responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals.

"With the exception of puppies under eight weeks of age (who return for the procedure), all our dogs and cats are sterilized prior to adoption. We needed the additional spay/neuter packs so our animals could become available for adoption sooner. In addition, our area residents can have this procedure done at a more affordable rate. The donation was badly needed, and will assist our shelter animals as well as the community," said Lynne Schoepfer, executive director of Save-A-Pet. "We were delighted to receive a $2,000 grant from The Build-A-Bear Workshop Hugs Foundation."
