The Santa Maria Valley Humane Society received a $119,000 grant award from PetSmart Charities to spay and neuter dogs in Santa Maria.
The two-year program is a collaborative effort between SMVHS and Santa Barbara County Animal Services, intended to make a significant impact in the Santa Maria community's most troubled area for pet overpopulation.
The goal of the program is to spay or neuter 1,700 dogs from the Santa Maria area over a two-year period by offering the surgeries at a discounted price of $10, with grant funds covering the balance of the surgery cost.
Residents living in the Santa Maria area can call the Santa Maria Valley Humane Society at (805) 349-3435 or Santa Barbara County Animal Services at (805) 934-6968 to make an appointment for the surgeries.
