Boulder City Animal Control Awarded $25,000 Grant

Annimal Control Shelter Boulder City, Nevada

Boulder City’s Animal Control shelter will receive a grant on February 12th at the City Council meeting in the sum of $25,000!

The grant comes from an organization called Maddie’s Pet Project in Nevada and from the generosity of Dave and Cheryl Duffield.

The awarded funds break down as follows:

  • $12,000 – Spay/neuter/vaccines and other vet care through Heaven Can Wait
  • $10,000 – Advertising of pets seeking loving new homes
  • $3,000 – Cat Colony Room (cat condos/cat trees for more natural habitat)

Shelter Supervisor Ann Inabnitt says, “This award will help us take better control of our pet population through spay/neutering, vaccination and vet care for our stray and unwanted pets. Boulder City Animal Control is deeply grateful to Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation for its generous support of our organization and commitment to improving the lives of dogs and cats throughout Nevada. We also thank the Boulder City community members who have been incredibly supportive of our mission here.”

We’re thrilled to see this great news! In the past few years, Ann and her team have worked hard for our homeless pets, with what is now a 96% placement rate. The shelter now qualifies as a ‘no-kill’ shelter.

And…if that wasn’t enough great news, lets take this moment to also remind you of Calvin’s Annual Birthday Benefit we told you about! This Saturday, your donations are needed to benefit both the Boulder City Animal Shelter as well as the Christian Center Food Pantry! See ya there!
