Perry Animal Welfare Society of Perry County, BARC of St. Louis County and Creative Communities, Inc. of Wayne County will each receive $2,000 to support their spay and neuter programs.
The grants are funded through Missouri's "I'm Pet Friendly" license plate program. The sale of each plate provides $20 for the state's Spay & Neuter Grant Program. This is the fourth year for the program.
