The St. Joseph County Animal Control Department has been chosen to receive a $10,000 grant for spay and neuter services.
In a correspondence to county commissioners last week, director Tom Miller said the service is performed before animals are adopted from the Centreville agency. Miller indicated he hopes the measure will help increase adoption rates at the shelter.
By unanimous vote, commissioners accepted terms of the reimbursement grant agreement.
The money was made available through a private foundation.
