Each contractor provides key deliverables to the City of Vallejo and its residents. The City pays over $1 million annually for animal care services and encourages residents to get their animals vaccinated and spayed or neutered to help reduce this number. Additionally, the City of Vallejo recommends residents get their animals microchipped.
