PAWS Humane just received a grant from the Holland M. Ware Charitable Foundation that will allow the local animal shelter to spay or neuter 100 pit bull dogs free in the community.
"Pit bulls are extremely sweet animals when raised in the proper environment," said Anna Ware in a statement. She works with the foundation. She owns seven pit bulls. Ware hopes that through the foundation, "pit bull owners will be encouraged to help control the pet overpopulation in Georgia."
Holland M. Ware is a philanthropist and makes a living making large land transactions in Georgia, Florida and South Carolina.
He has made several charitable donations over the years, including the Holland M. Ware Cancer Research Center at Emory University and the Holland M. Ware Imaging Center at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine.
