VICTORVILLE, Calif. (vvng.com) — The Office of Senator Scott Wilk announced that more than $150,000 in funding from the Pet Assistance and Support (PAS) program has been awarded to the City of Victorville for use on its new Wellness Center Campus.
The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD)’s PAS program supports local homeless shelter projects which seek to accommodate the needs of pets owned by individuals experiencing homelessness. By providing these accommodations, the PAS intends to remove the difficult choice many people must make between utilizing shelter resources and keeping pets.
“This is wonderful news for the Victorville community. Recent triple-digit temperatures remind us of the need to have facilities that can serve both people and their pets,” said Wilk.
