Award Date: July 17, 2018
The mission of Altus Animal Welfare Association is to advocate for animals of the Altus Animal Shelter as well as animals within Southwest Oklahoma and to provide access to low-cost preventative care and spay/neuter services in a kind and compassionate environment to all Southwest Oklahoma pet owners. In partnership with the City of Altus, AAWA will provide spay/neuter services to shelter animals prior to release for adoption and perform trap/neuter/release services within the city of Altus. The City will provide a building for free lease and has agreed to provide maintenance of the building at no charge to AAWA. AAWA will outfit the facility into a spay/neuter clinic in order provide sterilization to Altus shelter animals and community cats to the City of Altus. Once the clinic is in full operation AAWA will open to the public to provide low cost spay/neuter and vaccinations.
