Two Springfield-Area Groups to Receive "I'm Pet Friendly" Grants Totaling $4,000
Director of Agriculture Dr. Jon Hagler will visit Springfield Friday to recognize two local animal care organizations for their efforts to assist animal shelters and low income pet owners care for dogs and cats in southwestern Missouri. Spay Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP), Inc. of Rogersville and the Ava Area Animal Welfare League Jr. 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.
