Pet program gets a needed boost

The Barbara and Herschel Perry Charitable Trust will pay costs to spay and neuter dogs and cats in Allen County for the next 10 years. The trust has already given $20,000 for the program, which is administered by the Allen County Animal Rescue Facility (ACARF).

Barbara and Herschel Perry were known for their love of pets, especially cats. 

In fact, Herschel would often trap feral cats and dogs, pay to have them spayed or neutered, and release them back into the area. 

After the couple’s death a few years ago, the executors of their trust determined a worthy cause would be to cover the cost of having dogs and cats spayed and neutered for the next 10 years.
