Win-Win in Moreno Valley
Animal Shelter Wins ASPCA Grant, Families Gain Forever Friends

The Moreno Valley Animal Shelter was awarded a $5,000 grant as winner of the ‘Breaking 300’ Award granted by the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100k Challenge. The $5,000 grant awarded by the ASPCA recognizes the significant achievement made by the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter having worked to secure final placement of more than 300 pets during the three month long ASPCA Challenge as compared to last year during the same June 1 - August 31 time period. The $5,000-Breaking 300 grant award will be used to boost the number of pet adoptions by altering pets during special pet adoption events. It is anticipated that 60 to 70 adoptable pets will be spayed or neutered using these grant funds.

Meeting these goals was no small undertaking, however thanks to a supportive City Council and an enthusiastic community, great progress was made to spay and neuter more animals and to place more animals with loving families. The end of the ASPCA Challenge is not the end of the City’s effort to increase lives saved.

This grant award acceptance was presented and accepted by the Moreno Valley City Council at the November 18, 2014 City Council meeting.
