The Cat People’s SPAY TODAY! Program has gotten a big shot in the arm from the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation. The BABW Bear Hugs Foundation believes in helping domestic pets by providing, financial support through their grant program for animal welfare, pet rescue, rehabilitation, and therapeutic pet programs. The grants are to be used to prevent pet overpopulation, provide food and medical expenses for animals, and other needs required by pets.
The grants are funded through the sale of their Bearemy's Kennel Pals®. One dollar from the sale of each plush animal in this line is donated through the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation to qualified non-profit(c)(3) organizations working with or on behalf of domestic pets throughout the United States and Canada.
The Cat People organization is extremely grateful to the Foundation for this assistance. Our SPAY TODAY! Program is more than 20 years old, and each month receives many more requests than we can grant. Receiving this infusion of funds will mean that we can immediately provide assistance to financially strapped pet owners wishing to alter their cat. People in need of assistance getting their cat altered can call us at (661) 327-4706, and we will provide assistance while funding from this program lasts.
