State pushes spay-neuter effort
Ag chief visits JC shelter to promote program
Wednesday, January 9, 2013
The Missouri Department of Agriculture is offering grants in 2013 for the Pet Spay and Neuter Program, which helps animal shelters, humane societies and non-profit rescue groups with the costs of spaying and neutering animals.
2013 marks the fifth year for the program, which is funded by proceeds from Missouri’s “I’m Pet Friendly” license plates through the Missouri Department of Revenue.
Department of Agriculture Director Jon Hagler promoted the license plates and the Pet Spay and Neuter Program on Tuesday at Jefferson City Animal Shelter.
