Grand County Pet Pals received grant money for the animal shelter to extend more vouchers for spaying and neutering local pets.

A $900 grant from the Bissell Pet Foundation will fund 50 more vouchers for spaying or neutering cats and dogs. The vouchers provide $150 off services for dogs and $100 off services for cats at any vet in Grand County.

“We hope to address overcrowding in shelters and rescues by preventing unwanted litters of cats and dogs in Grand County,” a release about the funds said.

The vouchers will be available on a first come, first serve basis at the animal shelter starting at 10:30 a.m. July 19 through noon.

Only one customer at a time will be allowed in the shelter to get the voucher and mask wearing will be required.

Earlier this year, the shelter gave away 50 vouchers to locals for spaying and neutering pets, as well as some vouchers for rabies vaccinations.

The Bissell Pet Foundation’s mission is to find a home for every pet by focusing on adoption, spay/neuter, microchipping, and emergency support efforts.
