City’s Animal Shelter Receives Funding From PetSmart Charities to Help People and Pets Stay Together

June 24th, 2019 · Leave a Comment

Animal Care and Protective Services (ACPS) wants to keep pets with their owners using a $50,000 grant from PetSmart Charities®, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America.

The money will expand ACPS’ Pet Safety Net Program, a pet retention initiative that provides resources — including supplies, animal behavioral training, funds for medical care and housing solutions — to residents in an effort to decrease the number of animals surrendered to the shelter.

The program has produced positive results throughout the past five years, contributing to a 59 percent decrease in pet surrenders. For more information about the Pet Safety Net Program and other ACPS offerings, visit coj.net/pets or call 630-CITY (2489).
