County seeks spay/neuter assistance grant applications by Friday, April 20
Vancouver, Wash. ‒ Clark County’s Animal Protection and Control Advisory Board is accepting grant applications from local organizations with programs dedicated to spaying and neutering animals. For the past 18 years, Clark County and Vancouver have provided $15,000 annually for grants to applicants in the city and unincorporated area of the county.
“With this year’s grant, $270,000 has been infused into spay and neuter programs countywide, which helps reduce the number of animals that end up abandoned or at a shelter,” said Paul Scarpelli, Animal Control manager. “Altering your pet has proven to be healthier for the pet, as well as the community.”
Groups seeking grants can find application information at www.clark.wa.gov/community-development/spaying-or-neutering or by contacting Adrienne Powers at 360.397.2375 ext. 5852 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, April 20, 2018. Applications can be submitted by:
- Mail to Animal Protection and Control, P.O. Box 9810, Vancouver, WA 98666. Postmarks will be accepted.
- Fax to 360.759.6807
- Email to email@example.com
- Dropping them at the Animal Protection and Control office on the third floor of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St.
The advisory board will review the applications and make grant recipient recommendations to the county manager, who will award the grants.
The Animal Protection and Control Advisory Board requires each spay/neuter grant recipient to be an active pet licensing agent for Clark County. All grants must be applied only to animals licensed and living in Clark County.
