Companion Animals

Companion animal initiatives will aim to drive down intake numbers at the City's animal shelter by:

  • Improving pet-accessible policies in housing, eviction prevention, homeless services, and domestic violence services.
  • Promoting humane solutions for community cats.
  • Removing barriers to care for animal guardians in low income communities.
