Pet Alliance of Washington (PAW) announced it will donate $5,000 to Pet Savers in Spokane to help provide spay and neuter services. This is the first major gift the Pet Alliance of Washington, a coalition of dedicated animal welfare organizations in the state, has given since coming together formally in July of 2018. “Pet Savers is prepared with skilled staff to tackle the challenge of cat overpopulation, and this gift is our way of proudly supporting the tremendous work this clinic offers the Spokane community“ said Melanie Rushforth, chair of Pet Alliance of Washington. “We are earnest and determined in the belief that in order to save animals’ lives, we must find collaborative and long-term meaningful solutions. This is a good first step in that direction. ” The Pet Savers Spokane Clinic has spayed and neutered nearly 75,000 pets since 2005. Clinic Manager Stephanie Napier adds, “Pet Savers receives daily calls from cat owners desperate to get their cats sterilized at a cost they can afford. This gift will allow Pet Savers to provide surgery and a rabies vaccine to 200 cats in the Eastern Washington region.”
