Santa Cruz Animal Shelter Grant 10-30-13 08:00 av
The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter was awarded a grant this week for a new program aimed at keeping dogs confined outside in a more humane manner. The $22,500 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will provide nearly 300 trolley systems to willing pet owners throughout Santa cruz County as well as 200 dog houses. The trolley systems will replace tethered chains that currently keep dogs confined to yards outside. Santa Cruz Pet owners interested in having a trolley system installed can contact Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter.
