The Humane Society of Forsyth County has been awarded a $30,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to expand the nonprofit’s basic animal care fund.
The grant will be applied to the critical care rescue portion of the Humane Society’s (HSFC) basic animal care fund to provide surgery and medical treatments to animals with critical needs that may otherwise be sent to kill shelters.
“We are grateful for the generous grant provided by the Petco Foundation,” HSFC President and Executive Director Mark Schullstrom Jr. said. “As an independent non-profit we are limited on the number of animals we can save by the available funds we have to properly care for them. This grant allows us to strengthen and increase our rescue work for cats and dogs that otherwise wouldn’t have a second chance.”
The HSFC is a non-profit dedicated to pet adoption, pet owner education and reducing pet-overpopulation. The HSFC is the largest no-kill organization in Forsyth County and has facilitated the adoption of more than 20,000 pets since its establishment in 1975.
