(Sept. 27, 2012) -- Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (CCSPCA) will continue to provide full animal control services for the City beyond Oct. 1 , Fresno City Manager Mark Scott announced Thursday. Meanwhile, the two sides continue to discuss a constructive transition of the services.
The SPCA had previously notified the city that it would discontinue those services on Oct. 1.
”CCSPCA has expressed a willingness to keep working with the city on a six-month extension to its contract beyond Oct. 1 and to work out transition steps that may exceed that, subject to terms and conditions that we are still negotiating,” Scott said in a press release. “CCSPCA has assured us they will continue to provide services so we can formalize the extension.”
Scott said the City had a second productive meeting with CCSPCA officials this week. Another meeting to continue discussions on the extension will be held next week.
