Camden, DE, 1/19/2012 — The Kent County SPCA received a $101,090 grant from PetSmart Charities® to promote a new program called Project Purr. Project Purr will offer services to the owners of cats/kittens in Dover and Camden/Wyoming over the next two years to proactively fight the area’s homeless-pet overpopulation.
