Action Requested

Adopt Resolution R-16-137 to accept grant funding from the Manatee Community Foundation in the amount of $10,000.00; and adopt Budget Resolution B-16-083.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Resolution R-15-128 - Spaying & Neutering of Animals for Low-Income residents

Background Discussion

Resolution R-15-128 was adopted to provide a spaying and neutering program.

This grant is made in recognition of county funding being expended in a six-month period, an impact resulting in an already overburdened Manatee County Animal Services shelter with unwanted litters.  

Manatee Community Foundation will grant $10,000 to Manatee County Animal Services for the purpose of resuming free spay or neuter surgery for up to two pets for low-income qualified citizens through a participating non-profit spay/neuter clinic.
