The Franklin County Humane Society is pleased to announce the award of a grant of $1,500.00 from Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation. This grant will give them the funds to operate their subsidized spay/neuter program for pets of county low-income families for one month.  The Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation is committed to making life more bearable for children, families and pets in need of a helping paw.  With the sale of each full-sized Bearemy’s Kennel Pals® friend—a collection of Build‑A‑Bear Workshop® plush dogs—one dollar is donated to domestic pet programs including local animal shelters, stray pet rescue and rehabilitation organizations, and pet education programs around the country.  These funds are available to qualified non-profit organizations in the United States and Canada.  Visit www.buildabear.com for more information.  The Franklin County Humane Society is very grateful to Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation for their assistance with this vital program.  For more information about The Humane Society's Low-Income Spay/Neuter Program, please go to this page.
