Great River Rescue announces grant from Petco Foundation

Great River Rescue of Bemidji announced it has been awarded a $1,500 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its Pet Fixers low-cost spay/neuter program.

The Petco Foundation investment will help to provide a $20 discount for spay/neuter surgeries for each pet served at the weekend clinic.

“We are so pleased to offer these services to the community, support from groups like the Petco Foundation make it possible,” said Brandon Mustful, Executive Director of Great River Rescue. “This discount helps more people get their pets spayed/neutered which reduces pet overpopulation and pet homelessness in the area. A total of 68 animals are scheduled to be altered at the weekend clinic.”
