Spay/neuter effort gets helpPublished 10:29am Thursday, February 14, 2013
Benny and Jenell Carowan, owners of Carowan Farm near Pantego, deserve a tip of the hat for taking action that resulted in the Beaufort County Humane Society receiving $2,500 to help with its spay/neuter program.
The Carowans submitted a proposal under the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program of the Monsanto Fund. Under that program, farmers sign up to win money for their favorite nonprofit groups.
Jenell Carowan explained why she selected the Beaufort County Humane Society to receive the funds: “I love animals.”
That love is benefitting the local nonprofit — and the animals it serves.
As for using the money for its spay-neuter program, that’s a wise decision by the nonprofit. That program helps reduce the number of unwanted pets, which often are abandoned and left to fend for themselves or dropped off at the animal shelter, where they face euthanasia if they are not adopted.
Thanks to a woman who loves animals and the Beaufort County Humane Society’s spay/neuter program, the effort to reduce the unwanted-pet population is taking a giant step forward.
