Paws Humane Society received a $20,000 grant from PetSmart Charities, to help its spay and neuter efforts in the Chattahoochee Valley.

With the help of this donation, the organization will provide free spay and neuter surgeries for the animals owned by under-resourced communities in Columbus, Georgia.

Paws Humane Society has operated the Pets for Life program on a small scale since April 2015, working primarily in the 31907 zip code and recently increased its outreach program with hopes to have a greater impact in the community, according to a Paws Press Release.

PetSmart Charities aims to proactively prevent pet homelessness through increased spay and neuter efforts. With the help of animal welfare partners, such as Paws, PetSmart Charities has funded over 1.7 million spay and neuter surgeries in the U.S. since 2009, according to a Paws Press Release.
