The Hart County Humane Society is the recipient of a grant to help with spaying and neutering animals.

Recently, Hart County Humane Society President Donna Madkiff received a grant check from Georgia Department of Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black in the amount of $7,500.

Madkiff said the money would go towards the group’s spay/neuter program.

“We believe everyone should be able to have a pet regardless of their income, so this is why we offer the free spay and neuter,” Madkiff said. “This grant will go a long way towards helping reduce the pet overpopulation problem in Hart County.”

Madkiff went on to say that every spring Hart County Humane Society partners with area veterinarians in Hartwell to offer discounted and free spay/neuters to low-income households with pets.

The money comes from the Georgia Dog and Cat Sterilization Program, which is funded through the sale of specialty license plates.
