Humane society receives grant

The Marquette County Humane Society has recently received a grant from an anonymous national organization to supply low-cost and no-cost spays and neuters for canines in the local community. The grant is specifically designated to assist dog owners who cannot afford the surgery on their own. “We’re extremely excited about this,” said Dayna Kennedy, supervisor at the Marquette County Humane Society. “This is a good opportunity for the residents in the community. We have never received a grant to help low-income dog owners spay or neuter their dogs. We’re really excited to see the effects and hopefully we’re going to see less and less litters of puppies here.” Kennedy added that by the end of December, the humane society may also be offering low to no-cost spay and neuter operations for cats as well. Residents of Marquette County who need help with the cost of a spay or neuter surgery and would like to take advantage of this opportunity are encouraged to contact the humane society at 906-475-6661 to begin the process. Dogs at the humane society who are already spayed or neutered are available at the discounted price of $60, while altered cats are available for $50.
