The Peaceful Animal Adoption Shelter (PAAS) has received a spay/neuter grant from the Kirkpatrick Foundation. The grant will be used to help defray the surgical costs for pet owners in the Vinita and Tahlequah areas. To date, the PAAS Spay/Neuter program has “fixed” 3,500+ pets in northeast Oklahoma.

These funds wil be used to continue that program, a vital component of pet over­ population control.

PAAS is a member of the Common Bonds initiative. The goal is for Oklahoma shelters to have a 90% live release rate of adoptable pets by 2025. Thanks to this financial support, PAAS will continue to play a key role in pet over-population for northeast Oklahoma.
