Animal lovers in Summers County will continue their efforts in saving the lives of homeless pets.

The foster-based humane society is presented with a $7,000 grant for its participation in World Spay Day. Summer Wyatt with the Humane Society of the United States and native of southern West Virginia understands the effort Summers County Humane Society volunteers put into animal rescue.

"Summers County is one of only a hand full of organizations throughout the country to receive a grant for World Spay Day. And, I think that's really cool a little humane society made up of a group of really talented and dedicated individuals right here in West Virginia," Summer Wyatt - WV State Director, USHS.

"We help fulfill an obligation in the community to help people in different ways. It is not just help them spay and neuter animal. We provide transportation for that and we also educate them on the reason for spay and neutering," Cheryl Miller - Volunteer, SCHS.

SCHS is currently fostering nearly 30 animals. You can search Petfinder.com and type in the zip code 25951 for Summers County adoptable pet information.
