Humane Society of Washington County gets grant from PetSmart Charities

September 26, 2008

The Humane Society of Washington County recently received a $10,000 grant from PetSmart Charities to increase its number of spay/neuter operations by 20 percent.

The Humane Society's 6-year-old pet sterilization program has spayed or neutered more than 600 animals per year to fight the area's pet overpopulation problem.

The program is available to county residents who currently are receiving government financial assistance. It offers free spay/neuter services and pain medication, rabies vaccinations and county dog licenses.

For information on the society's spay/neuter program, call Margaret Becker at 301-733-2060, ext. 237.

The Humane Society is at 13011 Maugansville Road in Hagerstown. More information can be found at www.hswcmd.org.
