Animal Services Community Support Program
A new Rancho Cordova Animal Services Program may be able to help you get care for and keep your dog or cat when there is a medical issue.
The City’s Animal Services Community Support Program launched in the summer of 2022 through a grant from UC Davis. The primary goal of the program is to keep pets in the homes of Rancho Cordova families facing financial hardship.
“One of the more difficult parts of our job is seeing Rancho Cordova residents who want to care for their pet but lack the resources,” said Senior Animal Services Officer, Craig Hall. “We are proud to be able to lend a helping hand and close that gap through this new program.”
Hall said the program continues to be a tremendous help to local families and their pets. To see if you qualify, contact the Animal Services team at 916-851-8852 or http://animalservicerequest.com/WA2/RCAS.
