WYANDOTTE – New kennel doors are going to the dogs – and pups – thanks to a $5,000 grant to the Downriver Central Animal Control Authority, located in Southgate.
The DCACA facility, at 14300 Reaume Parkway, is a collaboration between the cities of Allen Park, Southgate and Wyandotte, and is staffed by city of Wyandotte employees and a contingent of volunteers.
The kennel door replacement is estimated to cost $7,200, with the balance of the improvements funded through the DCACA’s existing budget, which includes donations earmarked for animal control services.
City Administrator Todd Drysdale and Southgate Police Chief Brett Selby will work with city of Southgate employees to schedule the work and fulfill the grant requirements.
The grant will reimburse money spent upon completion of the work, which was estimated to take three months to complete.
