Shelter receives grant for new medical equipment


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – The Terre Haute Humane Society will be able to purchase new medical equipment thanks to a large grant.

The Banfield Foundation awarded $10,000 to the shelter.

That money will allow them to buy essential veterinary medical equipment for the shelter’s on-site surgery room.

Interim GM Sarah Valentine says while the current equipment receives yearly maintenance, it’s time to be replaced.

“It’s going to allow us to have safer spay and neuturing procedures done on our property. We also offer spay and neutering to the public by appointment on Thursdays, so this is just going to help make that a much safer experience and be more efficient,” says Valentine.

Banfield Foundation is a non-profit that helps organizations providing vet assistance to pet owners.
