Moreno Valley Animal Shelter Awarded $30,000 Grant to Support
its many Lifesaving Programs
The Moreno Valley Animal Shelter was
awarded a $30,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its
lifesaving programs to improve outcomes for the community’s
companion animals. The grant funds will support services for
both owned and homeless community pets, targeting in particular,
vulnerable pets that have a higher likelihood of missing the
opportunity to receive important medical support services such
as spay and neuter procedures, routine vaccinations, and
The objectives of this important funding are:
Keep community pets healthy and reduce the number of pets
entering the Animal Shelter.
Achieve a 5% reduction in the annual intake of animals
thereby allowing more time and space for shelter pets to achieve
a positive outcome.
Assist our low-income residents who own pets with access to
basic veterinary care for their pets through spay/neuter and
routine vaccination services.
Continue with the successful TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release)
Community & Feral Cat Program which has saved over 1,500 cats
since this important and lifesaving program began on October 21,
This is the City’s third grant award from the Petco
Foundation, which represents a total overall investment of
$75,000 for the community’s pets since 2016.
“The Moreno Valley Animal Shelter greatly appreciates the
Petco Foundation’s generous investments over the past three
years toward these important lifesaving programs,” said Steve
Fries, Moreno Valley’s Animal Services Division Manager. “We
wish to extend a special thanks to the Petco Foundation Team for
their ongoing support to our community’s pets.”
The Moreno Valley City Council accepted this grant award at
its March 5, 2019 meeting.

Moreno Valley Animal Shelter Seeks Adoption
Moreno Valley, CA
- Moreno Valley is increasing the number of adoptions for
homeless animals and wants to do even more. In an effort to
boost the number of positive outcomes for homeless companion
animals, the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter has launched the
Adoption Ambassador Program sponsored, in part by the
American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
(ASPCA). Adoption Ambassadors foster, evaluate and ultimately
find the animal a loving home. Moreno Valley is able to
launch this program with the help of a $2,500 ASPCA grant.
"The City of Moreno Valley greatly
appreciates the ASPCA's ongoing partnership and their
generous contributions for this and other programs."
said Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez.
"Increasing adoption rates is job #1 at the Animal
Shelter and a top priority for the City Council."
The Adoption Ambassador Program is an exciting
program that many animal shelters are now using to provide a
way for the community to be involved. Volunteers, or
ambassadors, and staff work together to create the best
possible scenario for homeless dogs and cats. Ambassadors
receive training that provides them with the right tools to
successfully adopt a pet into a new, lifelong loving home.
This program is a win/win for the foster program and homeless

Altering pets provides
several positive impacts to individual households as well as the
community by reducing the number of unwanted litters, increasing the
health of pets as medical evidence suggests, and helping to limit the
number of pets at the Animal Shelter.
Free spay and neuter
vouchers can be redeemed by City of Moreno Valley residents with proof of
residency such as a valid ID that reflects a current address or a copy of
a current utility bill. Qualifying dogs and cats must be 4 months or

Win-Win in Moreno Valley
Animal Shelter Wins ASPCA Grant, Families gain forever
Moreno Valley, CA- 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
