Granville County Animal Control was awarded a grant from Petco Love that will fund its trap-neuter-release program for feral cats.

The $6,000 investment from Petco Love will enable animal control officers to add 90-100 feral cats to the program. In 2020, the trap-neuter-release program helped save the lives of 411 cats and was a significant factor in the low euthanasia rate reported by the Granville County Animal Shelter, officials say.

“The growing feral cat population is one that we have been addressing over a period of time,” said Matt Katz, Granville County Animal Management director. “The T/N/R program is steadily making an impact, and in a humane way. This funding will allow us to continue our work to safely keep our numbers in check while keeping our euthanasia rate low.”

Petco Love, the nonprofit foundation previously known as the Petco Foundation run by the retail chain, has provided $300 million to animal groups nationwide since its founding in 1999.

“Today Petco Love announces an investment in Granville County Animal Control and hundreds of other organizations as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, the president of Petco Love, in a statement. “Our local investments are only one component. This month, we will also launch the first of our national tools to empower all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”
