Joint resolution authorizing the emergency appropriation of a grant in the Amount of $19,800.00 from the D. A. S. Charitable Fund for the Preservation of Feline Animal Life for use by the Sheriff’s Office Canine Unit.

 

Staff Summary

                     The D.A.S. Charitable Fund is a trust that provides grant funds for the care and training of canines.

                     D.A.S. funds do not require matching funds.

                     This year the Sheriff’s Office submitted a grant request that covered a higher percentage of canine expenses related to the maintenance and training of four canines. The grant covers annual expenses for veterinary services, food and kennel costs and training.

                     The Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Grant of $19,800 represents a decrease of 11 percent over the FY2019 Grant of $22,014.
