WATERVILLE, Maine (WABI) - The Humane Society Waterville Area is being recognized for lifesaving work for animals in Central Maine.

The shelter has been awarded a $10,000 grant investment for Petco Love.

With this grant, the humane society plans to offer cat spay and neuter sterilization surgeries.

They’ll be available to low-income households in 24 different communities the shelter serves.

”We’re doing a $15 copay for cats, up to two per household. It’s going to happen a week from this Friday, It’s really exciting for us because we haven’t been able to offer this kind of program to anybody for at least three years so it’s a really big deal for the shelter.”

Lisa Oakes, Executive Director, Humane Society Waterville Area

To schedule an appointment for a surgery, you can call the shelter at 873-2430.

The shelter is also looking to raise $350,000 as part of their capital campaign.

This will help them with facility upgrades.

More than $45,000 has been raised, so far.

We're so pleased to announce the receipt of a $10,000 grant from Petco Love to support our lifesaving work for animals...
