New York State is the first state to set up a fund for animal shelters. The $5 million Companion Animal Capital Fund supports critical upgrades to shelters. This year, 14 shelters and humane societies were awarded grants from the fund. Two of them were in the Hudson Valley. The Humane Society of Middletown will receive $439,000. It plans to use the funds to expand facilities for quarantining and treating animals. The SPCA of Westchester in Briarcliff Manor will receive $500,000. It plans to build a new shelter with the money. The matching grants were awarded based on need and the readiness of the project.
