2016 Pet Haven SNIP Grant Winners Announced 10/03/2016 By Kate Mudge Pet Haven is excited to announce our 2016 SNIP Grant Recipients. These 9 organizations do amazing work to reduce pet overpopulation throughout Minnesota and will share in more than $16,000 in grant awards to continue focusing on the life-saving work of spay/neuter. Since 2005, Pet Haven has awarded more than $200,000 to local (mostly rural) organizations. We believe that we cannot “adopt our way out of pet overpopulation” and partnerships are key to preventing unwanted litters. Join us in congratulating 2016’s SNIP Grant Winners!
