Wildomar Budgets A 34.5% Increase For…

…ANIMAL FRIENDS OF THE VALLEYS

The  City of Wildomar released its 2013-14 budget late Friday evening, in preparation for next Wednesday evening’s Special City Council Meeting, proposing a budget allocation of $445,300 for “animal control  services.”

The budget document itself notes that this is a 34.5 % increase over the 2012-13 budget allocation for the same animal control services of $331,000.

The “bottom line” number of $445,300  is actually the “next to the bottom line” number, when we include the $80,000 in license fees which are  annually ceded to Animal Friends of the Valleys , making the actual “bottom line” figure to be $525,300.

As a result, the City of Wildomar is spending in excess of  $500,000 to corral 997 dogs and 779 cats (in 2012).
