Spay and Neuter Syracuse receives 2017 ASPCA grant

Published Aug 6, 2017 at 9:00am

Spay and Neuter Syracuse (SANS) was recently awarded a grant from The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) for the 2017 Ten Dollar Spay and Neuter Program in conjunction with the Spanish Action League of Onondaga County and Syracuse Pit Crew.

The goal of the program will be to provide a low-cost alternative for the pet owners at income levels that will not allow them to afford regular SANS fees.

As a result of this program, SANS will have the resources to alter 190 additional animals in the Syracuse area. SANS thanks the ASPCA for their support of our efforts to reduce animal overpopulation.

SANS was founded in 2005 by the Syracuse Onondaga Cat Council, a concerned group of local veterinarians, licensed veterinary technicians, rescuers and citizens who banded together in an effort to address the animal overpopulation problem in Central New York. Since that time SANS has altered more than 23,000 dogs and cats.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. It was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization.
