The Center for Animal Health & Welfare in Williams Township is marking its 100th anniversary this month with an unusual exhibit at an Easton art gallery.
The exhibit opened Saturday at ConneXions Gallery, 213 Northampton St., where it spotlights the challenges the organization is facing while celebrating a milestone anniversary for the former Northampton County SPCA.
The exhibit includes photos and memorabilia from the organization's century-long history.
It also includes a display called “Boxes of Kittens,” an awareness exhibit that demonstrates what it takes for the organization to care for the boxes of kittens that are often literally left on the center's doorstep.
Nearly 100 such boxes were left at the center in 2012.
The display focuses on the health of the kittens and the cost of caring for them.
The center was recently the recipient of a grant for $97,310 from PetSmart Charities.
The grant will fund a two-year program that will pay for the spaying and neutering of 700 pet cats and 575 pet dogs belonging to low-income households in the West Ward and South Side areas of Easton.
The center estimates that 90 percent of pets in low-income households have not been spayed or neutered.
The exhibit will remain open through Jan. 11. Admission is free.
The Center for Animal Health & Welfare is located at 1165 Island Park Road, Williams Township.
