Animal Control

Detailed Discussion

A private Nonprofit (PNP) Animal Control  facility may be eligible for FEMA assistance when it provides health and  safety services of a governmental nature. There are three areas of potential  assistance:
   †  Permanent Repair  of the facility to the extent that the repairs are directly related to the  control of animals posing an immediate threat to the public health and  safety, or to the care of pets of disaster shelterees (see Pets)
   †  Emergency  protective measure to prevent damage to the facility to the extent that the  facility is otherwise eligible for assistance
   †  Emergency  protective measures to locate, pick up, shelter, and care for animals that  are pets of shelterees, or pose a threat to the public health and safety  (i.e., dangerous animals), if the service is done under contract with the  State or local government or is done by the governmental entity itself.  Essential needs (e.g., inoculations), costs of veterinary staff for emergency  treatment, and supplies and space in excess of normal requirements may be  eligible as emergency protective measures for the animals arriving at the  facility.
   Publicly owned animal control facilities are  generally eligible for assistance.
