Two Western New York animal shelters are among 14 shelters and humane societies across the state that will receive money from the New York State Companion Animal Capital Fund, according to a release Tuesday from Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo.
The Town of West Seneca Municipal Shelter will receive $119,775 to update its facility. Its renovation project includes covered kennels and a roof replacement and extension.
The SPCA in Cattaraugus County has been awarded $164,436 for the renovation of its shelter. It plans to install a new heating/cooling system for improved ventilation and weatherization.
The 2017-18 New York State budget provides $5 million in matching grant funding to eligible animal shelters on a competitive basis.
