The Chula Vista Animal Services will celebrate 100 years of service to the community through two events in March, along with several other events throughout the year.
A Sussical Storytime with the CVAS will be held on March 22 at 11:15 a.m., located at the South Branch Library in Chula Vista. According to event organizers, children will listen to stories focusing on Dr. Seuss's books, sing songs, and have special visits with a pet from the CVAS. Reservations are not needed to participate in this event.
All three city libraries are accepting canned pet food for the animals at CVAS during the month of March. Members of the community may drop off new dog or cat food at any branch during regular business hours. CVAS officials say pate-style canned food is preferred, but dry food will be accepted.
Last year, the CVAS took in 3,298 animals and processed 1,660 adoptions, and provided programs such as Rabies and Microchipping Clinics, Spay and Neuter Clinics, Foster Care Programs, and volunteer opportunities. According to the city, the CVAS has been a part of the communtiy since 1923.
More than 200 guests gave visited each day to either claim a lost pet, adopt a new pet, attend low-cost spay/neuter clinics, or learn more about the services offered.
