2020 Grant Awarded for Dog and Cat Sterilization Program Awarded to Hands to Paws, Inc. (Augusta)
The Georgia Department of Agriculture has awarded 97 state licensed animal shelters and animal rescue organizations grants for pet sterilization.
Hands to Paws, Inc. (Augusta) has been selected for a $5,000 grant to assist community pet owners with spay and neuter of pets.
This grant will target and aid these communities across our area by controlling the animal population in a humane manner.
The program is funded by the purchase of the Dog and Cat Sterilization Auto Tag, income tax check-off and from direct contributions to the program.
Funds are limited so priority will be given to low income pet owners and pet owners with multiple pet owners and those with extenuating stressful conditions that pose hardship.
Complete application below if interested in receiving assistance:
The grant does not pay for anything other than spay/neuter. Vaccinations must be current or paid for my owner at time of procedure.

Dr. Kat Ellis, is our President. She is also a teacher of visually-impaired children, (doctorate in education), and the wife of a very talented luthier (in case you need a guitar made or repaired). He is also an antique car enthusiast and a very understanding individual as making the world a better place for dogs-in-need consumes a great deal of Kat’s time.
