CLAWS News & Events
CLAWS Grant Funding
CLAWS relies heavily on grant funding to support our spay/neuter services. That funding has been provided by the Animal Assistance Foundation (AAF) and the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund (CPOP).
This year, CLAWS was notified that our grant funding requests were denied. We are publishing here and on our Facebook page the letter CLAWS sent in response to the funding denial. The letter addresses the concerns identified by AAF and CPOP as the primary reasons behind their decision.
That grant funding represented over one third of our annual budget and over 95% of CLAWS' spay/neuter budget. Consequently, our ability to continue to provide the volume of spay/neuter services for our community this year will be drastically reduced.
We average over 550 spay/neuters each year, and are very concerned about the negative impact such a significant reduction in our spay/neuter services will have on our community. We appreciate all the community support we have received through the years, and ask that you once again consider donating to our organization - we need your help now more than ever.
