Castaic Animal Shelter Receives New Animal Transport Trailer

Thanks to a life insurance bequest of $177,000 to the Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation, and another $37,000 in Foundation funds, the Castaic Animal Care Center will be better equipped to house and transport animals in emergency situations and for special events like spay/neuter clinics or adoption days.

New DACC trailersFour new trailers equipped to transport between 30 and 45 animals were donated to the county Department of Animal Care and Control by the Foundation. One will be housed at the Castaic Shelter.

They are the first of their kind for the DACC, and department staff plans to use them for a variety of operations.

Two of the trailers have a multi-purpose room for veterinary exams, adoption introduction, vaccine and microchip clinics and other uses.

They are all also heated and air-conditioned, with a stand alone solar power source, so that in the event of an emergency, they can be used to house pets near evacuation centers where the owners are staying.

Previously, the DACC would send pets to the nearest animal shelter if their owners were evacuated.

The $177,000 that made purchasing the trailers possible, was left to the Foundation by the late Beatrice Atwood, who passed away on May 13, 2012. She is remembered as an animal lover, according to a DACC press release.
