Spay/neuter assistance grants ready

Applications are due April 15

The Clark County Animal Protection and Control Advisory Board is accepting grant applications from local organizations with programs dedicated to spaying and neutering.

Clark County and the city of Vancouver are providing $15,000 in grants to applicants within the city and unincorporated county.

“Spay and neuter programs help all of us by reducing 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, as well.”

Applications are available at www.clark.wa.gov/development/animals/spay_neuter.html, or by contacting Adrienne Powers at (360) 397-2375, Ext. 5852 or adrienne.powers@clark.wa.gov.

The deadline is 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 15.

The advisory board will review the applications and recommend grant recipients to the acting county manager, who will award the grants.

The Animal Protection and Control Advisory Board requires each spay/neuter grant recipient to be an active licensing agent for Clark County. Also, all animals must be licensed and living in Clark County to be eligible.
