Beltrami Humane Society awarded grants
BEMIDJI — The Beltrami Humane Society recently received three grants totaling $7,225.
The $5,000 operating grant will be used to pay regular operating costs of the humane society and will cover utility bills for several months. The Bissell Pet Foundation grant will be used to create a special needs fund to help offset the costs of caring for animals with health or behavior issues and allow the humane society to offer them at a reduced adoption fee. The Best Friends grant will be used to initiate a new MOD squad, which is a volunteer-driven dog behavior and assessment program.
