||In 2012, CFA received a $5,000 grant award from The Washington Federation of Animal Care and Control Agencies, which will enable the completion of spay/neuter procedures for 42 dogs and 138 cats for low-income, senior citizens, unemployed and military pet owners. CFA is pleased to be able to partner with The Federation to provide these vital surgeries and improve the quality of life for animals and their guardians in Thurston, Mason and Lewis Counties.
The funds for this grant award are made possible by the sale of Washington State "We Love Our Pets" license plates.

Since 2007 The Federation has awarded over $278,693 in license plate grant funds to qualifying animal welfare organizations throughout Washington State, enabling the completion of nearly 10,243 spay/neuter surgeries.
