Overpopulation is a grim fact for feral felines and canines, whose lives are often nasty, brutish and short. The Miccio Foundation grant will provide spay and neuter services to low-income pet owners in the Perry area.

The Humane Society of Perry has been awarded a $3,500 grant from the Miccio Foundation, a society spokesperson announced Wednesday.

The money will cover the cost of spay and neuter services for dogs and cats owned by low-income families in the Perry area. The services will begin Aug. 1.

To qualify for the low-income service, pet owners must already be receiving some form of assistance.

The Humane Society of Perry spokesperson said the society is grateful to the Miccio Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation created for benevolent and educational purposes.

The Miccio Foundation supports projects that address the well being of animals in the Iowa.┬áThe foundation was named for Dr. Ursula Delworth’s first cat, Miccio (pronounced mee chee o). Delworth was a longtime animal activist in Iowa.
