Prairie Paws Animal Shelter in East Central Kansas announced it has been awarded a $15,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support their Trap – Neuter- Release (TNR) Program. This grant will extend efforts to save more animal lives.
The Petco Foundation investment will help buy more supplies for the Trap – Neuter – Release (TNR) Program such as traps, food and medical supplies.
“Our TNR efforts had been limited by the amount of traps and supplies we had on hand. We are beyond grateful for this opportunity to invest in more traps and supplies for our TNR program so we can better manage the outdoor free-roaming cat populations through non-lethal means.” said Melissa Reed, Executive Director of Prairie Paws Animal Shelter.
Prairie Paws Animal Shelter is a private, no kill, 501 (c)(3), non-profit shelter, founded over 70 years ago by Beatrice Martin Peck. Prairie Paws Animal Shelter’s Mission Statement is to provide compassionate care and placement for animals in need. Currently their live release rate is at 98%.
