Our thanks go out to the Washington Federation of Animal Care and Control Agencies for a $5,000 grant for the spay/neuter of cats. Stevens County has a cat overpopulation problem, and this funding will help prevent more homeless and neglected cats. These wonderful grants are paid for through We Love Our Pets license plates, check it out!
We have also been awarded $15,000 for capacity building from the Inland Northwest Community Foundation. This grant is partially funding the first shelter staff position ever in Stevens County (to our knowledge) that is dedicated to community outreach and education. We are very grateful to the Inland Northwest Community Foundation and continue to seek funds to build our capacity to fill the tremendous gap in humane society services in northeast Washington.
