LISBON — Fur Fun Rescue has been awarded a $5,000 grant from the BISSELL Pet Foundation (BPF) for spay/neuter procedures to be performed at Cedar Rapids area veterinary clinics. This dedicated grant will help reduce the homeless pet population by preventing unwanted litters of stray dogs in the community.
With thousands of dogs abandoned each year, spaying and neutering address the root cause of animal overpopulation. By preventing unwanted births, space for pets in need is freed up at rescues and shelters.
Fur Fun Rescue is proud to be one of just 93 animal welfare organizations across the country to receive an award from BPF this Fall to help protect and save animal lives.
“We understand how important it is to support preventive efforts that allow our partners to save lives through safe spay and neuter procedures,” said Cathy Bissell, founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “We also strongly encourage all pet owners to be responsible and have their pets sterilized, to further ensure healthy pet populations.”
