The Medfield Animal Shelter is pleased to announce that it received a $2,000 grant from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition through the “I am Animal Friendly” license plate program.
The grant is to be used towards the shelter’s spay and neuter services for feral cats.
Jackie Walters, the Shelter’s manager, said: "We are thrilled to once again be a recipient of a generous grant to help fund the free spay/neuter clinic for feral cats that we hold each year as our way of celebrating National Feral Cat Day."
National Feral Cat Day takes place on October 16, 2012 and was created by Alley Cat Allies a decade ago to promote humane care for feral cats.

About the Medfield Animal Shelter
The Medfield Animal Shelter's mission is to rescue lost or abandoned animals and provide for their comfort and safety until they are reunited with their owners or placed in new homes. The Shelter is no-kill, which means no pet will ever be euthanized because it has run out of time to find a home. We are committed to ending the overpopulation of pets that results in an estimated 5 million companion pets being euthanized at shelters in the U.S. every year, therefore all cats, rabbits and dogs adopted from us are spayed and neutered prior to adoption. The Shelter sponsors a low cost spay/neuter clinic for cats at the shelter once or twice a month, as well as two feral cat clinics each year.
