The Boulder City Animal Control see almost 1000 animals go through their doors a year be it dogs, cats, or even cockatoos. Thankfully though they were just awarded a $25,000 grant to help get these animals forever homes. The funds will be broken down like this:
- $12,000 towards spay/neuter/vaccines & other vet care through Heaven Can Wait
- $10,000 towards advertising of pets seeking loving new homes
- $3,000 towards the Cat Colony Room
Ann Inabnitt from the Boulder City Animal Control believes " The shelter is a nice place. It’s clean, it’s comfortable, but, we don’t give them love 24-7," Inabnitt said. "We talk to them throughout the day, we do interact with them, we do brush them, walk them, but it’s just not the same as sitting on somebody’s lap. It’s just not the same snuggling with somebody in bed at night and being their world"
