Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) June 18, 2010
Grand Rapids Realtor Cheryl Grant’s (http://www.cherylgrant.com) sponsorship of a golf event designed to help pets and their owners in West Michigan helped raise more than $25,000.
Cheryl Grant of Keller Williams Realty sponsored the C-SNIP Classic golf event and auction at Scott Creek Country Club May 22nd, 2010. C-Snip provides low-cost spay/neuter surgery for dogs and cats whose caretakers cannot pay the fee at full service vet clinics.
Grant, a caretaker for three of her own pets – two dogs Willa and Etta and rescue cat Sam – supports the C-SNIP effort to reduce the number of unwanted or feral animals in otherwise pet-friendly communities. While many consider the rising number of feral animals to be an urban problem, as a real estate professional in West Michigan, Grant also sees evidence of the problem in suburban communities such as East Grand Rapids, Forest Hills, Ada, Kentwood, Wyoming and Walker as well.
“Prevention of overpopulation is the key to resolving the problem of unwanted pets and reducing the feral animal population that plagues many communities. It affects not only the Grand Rapids urban area, but neighboring communities and the entire nation. I’m proud to be a small part of this great effort,” Grant said.
More than 100 golfers participated in this year’s event, making it the most successful Classic in its 10-year history. C-Snip Board Member, Pam Olsen, credits Grant’s commitment to raise C-SNIP’s profile.
“Cheryl Grant Real Estate was the first major sponsor to come forward. Her respect for and confidence in the mission of C-SNIP is evidenced by her sponsorship commitment. She understands that prevention of overpopulation is the only humane solution for the very sad reality of too many pets for too few homes. It’s also the least expensive and easiest to administer.”
C-SNIP is a non-profit, charitable organization, providing high quality, high volume, low cost spay/neuter surgery for dogs and cats whose caretakers cannot pay the fee at a full service veterinary clinic. It's a sad fact that there are more dogs and cats born every day than there are homes to accept them.
