Humane Society of Northeast Georgia receives $46,000 from PetSmart

The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) announced it received
$46,000 from PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare in North America, to help fuel its spay and neuter
efforts in northeast Georgia. With the help of this donation, HSNEGA will be able to offer up to 800 surgeries
throughout 2017 for a reduced cost to target pets and pet owners.
“We are so grateful to PetSmart Charities for their dedication to saving lives through supporting affordable spay/neuter
surgery,” says Julie Edwards, HSNEGA Executive Director. “The impact of this grant goes beyond just 800 surgeries—it
will result in tens of thousands of companion animals who don’t wind up in shelters facing euthanasia.”
Since opening their high volume/low cost Spay/Neuter Center in May 2005, HSNEGA’s specially trained high-volume
surgery team has altered more than 72,000 animals including owned and rescued animals. HSNEGA’s center also has
offered numerous programs such as Fix by Six (focusing on animals 6 months and younger); Fix My Pit (focusing on bully
breeds) that target “at-risk” animal populations; and Beat the Heat (focus on spaying and neutering cats before the
spring “litter season”). HSNEGA will be rolling out more details on the upcoming special in the coming weeks.
For more information about spay/neuter services at HSNEGA, or to schedule an appointment, please call 770-531-6617
or visit www.HSNEGA.org. Surgery is by appointment only and other basic wellness services are offered at the time of
surgery for an additional fee.
PetSmart Charities aims to proactively prevent pet homelessness through increased spay and neuter efforts. With the
help of animal welfare partners, such as HSNEGA, PetSmart Charities has funded over 1.4 million spay and neuter
surgeries in the U.S. since 2009.
