Animal Control Advisory Board launches online donation application
FRANKFORT, Ky. - The Kentucky Animal Control Advisory Board has launched a new application enabling citizens to donate to the Kentucky Spay-Neuter Fund online. The fund provides support for community spay/neuter programs throughout the Commonwealth.
“Providing citizens the ability to make donations online, in a secure and convenient manner, will increase our efforts in reducing the number of homeless animals and the financial burden they place on local governments,” said Linda Grimes, chairperson of the Kentucky Animal Control Advisory Board.
Since 1998, the Kentucky Animal Control Advisory Board has sought to reduce the number of homeless companion animals and sets high standards for facilities that care for those animals in Kentucky. In addition to making donations online or by mail, citizens may also purchase Kentucky spay/neuter license plates to further the board’s efforts.
“Since 2010, $609,505 in spay/neuter grants have been awarded to community programs. We hope that the launch of this application increases our ability to provide a safer environment for our state’s animal companions,” said Grimes.
This application was developed for the Kentucky Animal Control Advisory Board by the Commonwealth’s eGovernment partner, Kentucky Interactive LLC., a subsidiary of NIC, and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
The Animal Control Advisory Board makes recommendations to the Kentucky commissioner of agriculture relating to animal control issues, evaluating applications for disbursement of animal care and control funds, establishing shelter standards, and creating training programs.
