Grant of $10,000 will extend efforts to save more animal lives in Maricopa County
The Arizona Pet Project announced it has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its community spay and neuter program.
The Petco Foundation investment will provide free spay and neuter surgeries for 117 dogs and cats living in underserved communities in Maricopa County. The Arizona Pet Project funds and deploys mobile veterinary clinics to ensure pets who may not otherwise have the opportunity to receive vital medical support services such as spay and neuter, and vaccines.
“We are incredibly grateful for the ongoing commitment of the Petco Foundation in improving the lives of pets in our community. The funds generously granted to the Arizona Pet Project will expand our ability to reach loving pet owners who lack access to affordable veterinary care due to geographic and financial barriers,” said Leanna Taylor, Executive Director at the Arizona Pet Project.
To celebrate the investment, a check presentation will take place on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. at Petco located at 4535 E Thomas Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85018.
