YAKIMA, Wash. — A local pet group was awarded a $4,200 grant to help Yakima families who need financial assistance to get their pets spayed or neutered.
The Washington Federation of Animal Care and Control Agencies awarded the grant to Pawsitive Alliance following last weekend's pet adoption event in Union Gap.
The grant allows for more than 60 pets to be spayed or neutered for pet caretakers who live in the city of Yakima.
The grant is part of a larger project with a goal of spaying/neutering 170 dogs.
Pawsitive Alliance said they partner with The Federation to provide the pet surgeries. Grant funds come from the sale of “We Love Our Pets” license plates.
