Spay/neuter program receives $20K grant



The Cincinnati Enquirer

Cincinnati's United Coalition for Animals has received a $20,000 grant to continue its spay/neuter program.

Founded in 2001, UCAN's participating groups are the Clermont County Humane Society, The League for Animal Welfare, The Scratching Post, Save the Animals Foundation and O'Bryonville Animal Rescue.

The grant was awarded by Petsmart Charities of Phoenix. Sarah Skoglund, a League for Animal Welfare board member, said more than 31,000 dogs and cats were euthanized last year in Hamilton, Clermont, Warren, Butler, Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties.

"With this many animals euthanized in the area last year, there is no ethical way to justify allowing a pet to have babies," Skoglund said.
