Feral Cat Program Receives Grant Funding

The funds for this grant award are made possible by the sale of Washington State “We Love Our Pets” license plates. In an effort to be proactive regarding the pet overpopulation problem in our state, revenue from the sale of these license plates have been earmarked through an agreement with the State of Washington for actual spay/neuter surgeries for dogs and cats in our state.  Since the sale of the “We Love Our Pets” license plates began in 2006, more than $230,000 in grant funds have been awarded by The Federation, enabling the completion of nearly 9,000 spay/neuter surgeries in Washington State.

Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project’s mission is to save the lives of homeless cats by providing access to high volume spay/neuter surgery in a safe and humane environment, collaborating with others and mentoring like-minded organizations to increase spay/neuter in their regions.  This grant will be used to fund five extra clinics that will be open exclusively to cats 6 months of age or younger.  To find out more information about dates of these clinics, call 425-673-2287 x2.
