Lowell, MA July 20, 2023 –Grant helps fund special spay/neuter clinics
The Lowell Humane Society (LHS) is happy to announce they are a recipient of a 2023 grant
from the MA “I’m Animal Friendly” license plate program. Funds will be used towards LHS’s
low-cost spay and neuter programs for cats in the Greater Lowell Area. LHS is grateful to have
received a portion of the $185,000 in grant funding that was awarded to on 38 organizations in
June under the 2023 I’m Animal Friendly License Plate Grant Program.
The “I’m Animal Friendly” license plates are a program of the Massachusetts Animal Coalition.
Funds are granted annually to organizations that demonstrate a need for funding and provide
low-cost spay/neuter services. The program has been in operation since 2004 and has now
granted out $3,050,989 over the past 19 years! Funds help animal shelters, rescue groups and
animal control programs with the cost of spaying and neutering their dogs, cats and bunnies.
The MAC grant is being used to subsidize spay/neuter for feral community cats, shelter cats and
owned cats who need it most. “The Lowell Humane Society is extremely grateful to the
Massachusetts Animal Coalition for awarding these much-needed funds,” stated LHS Executive
Director, Crystal Arnott, “This grant will allow us to help families who truly love their pets, but
need support to keep them happy and healthy.”
