Best Friends Animal Society Award

Friday, March 25, 2011 – When ACN was awarded a spay/neuter grant from Best Friends Animal Society for low-income cat owners in Pontiac the last thing we expected was a personal visit!

As a grant recipient in a poverty stricken area with no animal control ACN was chosen as a story by Best Friends and had a home visit by Ted and Molly who spent 4 days in Pontiac.

They saw everything there was to see in this city, from ACN visiting backyards, helping seniors with pet food, rescuing dogs and cats, providing straw, spay and neuter services, dead dogs lying in the street for months, dogfighting complaints, parvo calls and reaching out to the community in many ways.

This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and we feel honored to have the attention of such a respected and renown organization. We would also like to thank Barb Perl for letting us utilize her home as a welcome area!!
