HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) — The Rockingham Harrisonburg SPCA has been awarded a $40,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to implement new lifesaving programs to save the lives of cats and kittens in the community, according to a news release from the Rockingham Harrisonburg SPCA.

The grant will be used to help the Rockingham Harrisonburg SPCA start a barn cat program and raise community awareness and share resources for community cats.
