Oklahoma City’s Animal Shelter receives a $74,000 Grant
OKLAHOMA CITY- The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) recently awarded Oklahoma City’s Animal Shelter with a $74,000 grant.
“We are grateful to the ASPCA for their on-going commitment to improve the lives and adoption rates for homeless animals in Oklahoma City,” Animal Welfare Superintendent Catherine English said. “This grant will move us toward reaching our goal of a 75 percent live release rate.”
The grant will help pay for a part-time veterinarian and veterinary assistant to diagnose, treat and sterilize up to 1,000 shelter pets, preventing their euthanasia. The part-time employees are in addition to the Shelter’s budgeted positions.
