San Bernardino has received $125,000 grant that will help residents pay for veterinary services.
The grant from the University of California’s Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program – More Pets and People Together – can be used for spay and neutering, according to a statement on the city’s website.
The voucher program is available with participating local veterinarians.
“This grant will help us get much needed veterinary care to the pets in our community,” said Kris Watson, the city’s animal services director, in the statement. “Pet care is expensive, and this grant will help our residents’ dogs and cats stay healthy and happy.”
Information regarding participating veterinarian offices and program eligibility will be available in February. Vouchers for care are expected to be ready in March.
