Animal Care Services Uses Grant Funds to Increase Adoptions

The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) launched its third year of the ASPCA & Subaru Share the Love Event “Rescue Ride” grant program. The grant program helps transport thousands of homeless dogs from overcrowded shelters to shelters in areas where they have a better chance of being adopted. Thanks to funding from the annual Share the Love Event, the program will grant a total of $189,000 in funding to 49 organizations to cover transportation costs. The City of Corpus Christi Animal Care and Vector Services is proud to announce that it has received $9,000 from this ASPCA grant program.

On behalf of Chief Mike Markle and the Corpus Christi Police Department we would like to thank ASPCA and Subaru for selecting us for this grant and we look forward to utilizing it to make a difference for our citizens and animals.
