Money will be used to Spay and Neuter Animals
BOSTON, June 4, 2021—The MSPCA-Angell today announced it has received a $25,000 grant from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC) through its “I am Animal Friendly” license plate program.
The grant money will fund the MSPCA’s spay and neuter services at a time when Covid-19 has significantly impacted the availability of spay and neuter services, resulting in long waiting lists across Massachusetts.
Mike Keiley, director of the MSPCA-Angell’s adoption centers and programs, thanked MAC for the grant, which will fund such vital work at the MSPCA and the communities it serves.
“We’ve provided low cost spay and neuter surgery for 3,000 animals and these funds from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition, and support for the ‘I’m Animal Friendly’ license plate, are crucial to ensuring those resources are available—and we’re so grateful for the ability to carry out this important work,” he said.
The Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC) is a statewide, nonprofit organization comprised of animal professionals and individual volunteers dedicated to working together to decrease the number of homeless, neglected, displaced and abused animals in Massachusetts.
MAC’s “I’m Animal Friendly” License Plate program helps fund spay and neuter programs across the state. These charitable plates are available through Massachusetts RMV and are tax deductible. www.petplate.org
