There will hopefully be fewer dogs and cats having litters of puppies and kittens in Hart County, now that the Hart County Humane Society has received a new grant.

Recently, humane society president Donna Madkiff received a check from Georgia Department of Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black in the amount of $7,500.

The money comes from the Georgia Dog and Cat Sterilization Program, which is funded through the sale of specialty license plates.

Madkiff said the money will go towards the group’s spay/neuter program.

Every spring, Hart County Humane Society partners with area veterinarians in Hartwell to offer discounted and free spay/neuters to low-income households with pets.

Since they’ve been offering the free and discounted spays and neuters, Madkiff said people in Hart County seem to be getting the message about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets.
