Animal control receives 2 grants

St. Joseph County Animal Control has received two anonymous grants to help the Centreville-based agency.

During their monthly board meeting last week, St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners learned more about the windfall from finance director Angie Steinman.

She said an anonymous donor provided $5,000 toward the department’s spay/neuter program. The other gift was $10,000 to be allocated for an upgrade at the department.

County grant writer James Hissong said both grants are from the same, anonymous source. He said the upgrade centers on a floor-resurfacing project involving the application of an epoxy coat to keep germs and epoxy bacteria from sinking in.

The grants do not require a match.
