Chico, CA -- The Chico Animal Shelter, a division of the Chico Police Department, is being recognized by PetSmart Charities, Inc., the leading funder of animal welfare, in the form of a $15,000 grant.

Funds will be used to cover the costs of approximately 300 subsidized spay/neuter surgeries for dogs and cats in the Chico community.

Tracy Mohr, Animal Services Manager for the Chico Animal Shelter, says she submitted the Chico Animal Shelter for grant consideration in August, 2017. In 2017, the Chico Animal Shelter spent just over $37,000 to cover medical expenses for animals, including spay/neuter procedures.

“We are very excited to receive this grant as it will help us cover the costs of spay/neuter for our adoptable dogs and cats,” said Mohr. “These additional dollars allow us to free up valuable funds for other life-saving medical care we provide for animals in our care.”

The Chico Animal Shelter was one of hundreds of nationwide agencies and municipalities which submitted applications for the grant, in what was described as an extremely competitive selection process.

The Chico Animal Shelter met all criteria set forth in the grant, including showing adequate need, having the capacity to perform the services and exhibiting a successful track record of addressing the issues of animal overpopulation and welfare.
