ELLSWORTH, Maine (AP) - More than 20 organizations around Maine are set to receive grants in support of animal welfare work.

The money is from the Maine Community Foundation, which is awarding $282,000 to support the work. Recipients include the Waldo County Pet Food Pantry and Humane Society Waterville Area.

The SPCA of Hancock County is slated to receive a grant to establish spay and neuter clinics and provide financial assistance to low-income pet owners for unexpected veterinary bills.

The foundation’s animal welfare fund has been around since 2007.
