Kingston Humane Society Statement
RE: Animal Pound Services Contract with the City of Kingston
The Kingston Humane Society is committed to advocating for and improving the lives of animals within our community.
On September 4, 2018, the Kingston Humane Society attended the City of Kingston Council Meeting to be present for the discussion surrounding the provision of Animal Pound Services for the City.
Kingston Humane Society staff have been working collaboratively with City staff to put forward a new interim contract. As the previous contract had expired, an interim contract was necessary.
Council unanimously passed the City staff recommendation. The interim contract expiring, January 31, 2019, provides a flat monthly fee in lieu of the previous per animal model.
We feel that this is the best case scenario for the City of Kingston, the Kingston Humane Society, and most importantly, the animals in our community.
