Lake Haven Awarded Pedigree Grant 

December 4, 2008 

    Lake Haven was awarded $1,740.80 from the Pedigree Foundation.  The rescue will use the funds as indicated in the grant proposal: to help supplement Lake Haven's low cost spay/neuter program for dogs.  Patrons of this very important program receive a voucher for a discounted spay/neuter at a participating veterinary clinic.

With this grant, Lake Haven will be able to spay/neuter additional dogs in its immediate service area.  With the local economy below the nation’s average, the need has never been as great.  This funding will help relieve area shelters of the rising number of unwanted dogs, thereby increasing the chances of adoption over its alternative: euthanasia.  

Lake Haven extends its gratitude to the Pedigree Foundation for this generous gift.
