News: Voices for Animals Receives a Generous Grant From Two Mauds, Inc.


Voices for Animals is pleased to announce that it has received its first-ever grant from Two Mauds, Inc. for $3,000 to support our Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project!

Two Mauds, Inc. is a foundation established by Dr. Dallas Pratt, a psychiatrist who believed in the human-animal bond, was known as a progressive in the field of mental health, and was perhaps the first highly credible voice against biomedical research in the modern animal rights movement.

The foundation now focuses its work on funding affordable spay/neuter projects in the Appalachian area.

Voices for Animals is very grateful to Two Mauds, Inc. for recognizing the vital importance of spaying/neutering in reducing animal suffering and for supporting our work in achieving that goal.
