Grant of $6,000 will extend efforts to save more animal lives in McMinnville and Yamhill County
McMinnville, Oregon, March 6, 2018. The Homeward Bound Pets Spay/Neuter Clinic in McMinnville, Oregon, today announced it has been awarded a $6,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its new Spay/Neuter Clinic located on 7 th Street in McMinnville.
Homeward Bound Pets has operated a low-cost spay/neuter transport program for cats since 2011, which has been funded by annual Petco Foundation grants and donations from Yamhill County citizens and many of its cities and towns. In 2017 we opened the Homeward Bound Pets Spay/Neuter Clinic in McMinnville, which means we no longer have to transport cats out of the area to be spayed and neutered and can also offer spay/neuter services to dogs as well as cats.
The Petco Foundation investment will help us provide low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for Yamhill County’s low-income residents who own cats or dogs, or who care for stray or feral cats, including homeless individuals and their companion animals. Additional services include vaccinations, microchips, and flea/parasite control products for cats and dogs. Financial help is available to qualified individuals on government assistance who reside in Yamhill County and the West Valley area.
“Homeward Bound Pets is honored to be able to provide all Yamhill County Citizens access to low cost spay/neuter services. Our new clinic in McMinnville will help reduce pet overpopulation and save lives,” said Executive Director, Ronnie Vostinak.
For more information about Homeward Bound Pets and its Spay/Neuter Clinic or the Petco Foundation, visit www.hbpets.org or www.petcofoundation.org. Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or by using the hashtag #PetcoFamily.
About the Petco Foundation
At the Petco Foundation, we believe that every animal deserves to live its best life. Since 1999, we’ve invested more than $200 million in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen. With our more than 4,000 animal welfare partners, we inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. Through our Think Adoption First program, we partner with Petco stores and animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, we’ve helped more than 5.5 million pets find their new loving families, and we’re just getting started. Visit petcofoundation.org to learn more about how you can get involved.
For every new client who files their taxes with H&R Block or Block Advisors, $20 will be donated to Homeward Bound Pets. The total donation amount is unlimited!
