Richland, MS (August 5, 2021) – Mississippi Spay & Neuter announced today a $7,500 grant investment
from the newly named Petco Love to support their lifesaving work for animals in Central Mississippi.
Petco Love is a nonprofit leading change for pets nationally by making communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since their founding in 1999 as the Petco Foundation, they’ve empowered organizations with $300 million invested to date in adoption and other lifesaving efforts.
And, they’ve helped find loving homes for more than 6.5 million pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations nationwide.
“Today Petco Love invests in Mississippi Spay & Neuter and hundreds of other organizations across the nation working to improve animal health and welfare as part of our commitment to creating a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, President of Petco Love. “Our local
investments are only one component. This year, we also launched the first of our national tools, Petco Love Lost, which empowers all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”
“This generous investment will support our feral cat spay/neuter program and help us have a greater lifesaving impact. Often, feral cats congregate in colonies, and their care is left to the generous person who feeds them. Helping with the cost of spay/neuter can reduce this burden and help prevent the further overpopulation in colonies. Petco Love's investment will help approximately 214 cats in need at our Big Fix Clinic, where we fix around 45 feral cats each month,” said Sharon Garner, Executive Director at Mississippi Spay & Neuter.
