SpayVA Spay/Neuter Grant Program
The Virginia Federation of Humane Societies, SpayVA program is announcing a change to its annual conference grant process. In years past, we have provided grant monies to all requesting members who were in attendance at the conference through a double-blind draw process. Starting in 2017, applications will be reviewed by VFHS and a minimum of 5 grants will be awarded on the basis of greatest impact, ability to conduct services, and overall need. Please click this link for more info on how to apply:
We are happy to report that in 2016, $19,500 was awarded to 29 member organizations and over 400 animals were spayed/neutered as a result.
A huge thank you goes out to Tito's Handmade Vodka and Breakthru Beverage for partnering with SpayVA and for providing $10,000 in grant funds awarded at our 2016 conference to local rescues and animal shelters for spaying/neutering services. VodkaForDogPeople.com
