Animal Care Services is one of the agencies with increased funding in the budget approved by City Council last week. ACS will use those funds to expand some pilot programs it says are working to forward its mission.
“Which is increasing that live release rate, while enforcing the laws controlling the stray animal population and providing education and outreach,” says ACS Director Heber Lefgren.
The Animal Care Services budget for the coming fiscal year is $13.8 million. That’s $900,000 more than the agency got this year.
