Petco Foundation Invests in Lifesaving Work in the City of Nassau Bay

Grant of $45,000.00 will extend efforts to save more animal lives in the City of Nassau Bay.

 

[Nassau Bay] (February 8, 2018 ) – The City of Nassau Bay announced it has been awarded a $45,000.00 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its restoration of the animal shelter after the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey.

 

The City of Nassau Bay’s animal control division provides humane treatment of all animals while providing municipal animal control functions and pet reuniting efforts. In addition, Nassau Bay’s animal control division works with multiple non-profits to help adopt and relocate animals staying at the shelter. The City’s focus on lifesaving animal control and successful relocation/adoption efforts facilitates high volunteerism and ongoing support.

 

The Petco Foundation investment will help to rebuild the animal shelter after it was demolished during Hurricane Harvey. The restoration of the shelter provides an exceptional haven for animals waiting to be adopted, reunited, or relocated to another lifesaving facility.

 

“Nassau Bay is extremely appreciative of The Petco Foundation’s grant, as it expedites the return of a caring space for animals. Our citizens and volunteers will be happy to return to daily interactions with animals at the shelter.,” said Jason Reynolds, City Manager.
