For the past decade, the City of Menifee has contracted with Animal Friends of the Valleys (AFV) for field services and with Riverside County for sheltering services. The city is consolidating these services and, starting June 26, will be transporting stray animals to AFV.
At its May 14 meeting, the Menifee City Council directed staff to contract with AFV for both field services and sheltering services. The contract was approved on June 17. According to city documents, the cost of field services will be $225,000 for the coming fiscal year. In addition, the city voted to join SCFA, a Joint Powers Authority,to facilitate animal sheltering services, which will cost approximately $37,600 per month.
Animals from the city of Menifee will remain in the care of the Riverside County animal shelter in San Jacinto through the end of the original contract with the city, which expires on June 30. After that date, Menifee strays will be transported to AFV.
During the transition period, officials from the county and the city of Menifee are urging pet owners to check both the county website, www.rcdas.org, and the Animal Friends of the Valleys website, www.animalfriendsofthevalleys.com, for their lost pets.
AFV, located at 33751 Mission Trail in Wildomar, operates the Southwest Communities Animal Shelter and serves the cities of Canyon Lake, Lake Elsinore, Murrieta, Temecula, and Wildomar.
