“Never Stray from Hope” is the message Animal Care and Protective Services (ACPS) seeks to convey each day as it serves citizens with animal control, veterinary services, pet adoptions and more. With a mission to save the lives of all adoptable animals in the community, ACPS receives approximately 12,000 animals on average per year. This number could change thanks to a Lifesaving Impact Grant awarded by the Petco Foundation. The grant will provide ACPS with $200,000 over two years to expand animal behavior and volunteer programs, and help improve adoption numbers with increased community involvement and visibility.
