Auburn seeks proposals of interest for animal sheltering services

The City of Auburn is looking for an organization to provide animal sheltering services.

City officials are accepting proposals of interest for the purpose of contracting for services for animals impounded through the City's animal care and control program to include owner surrenders and turn in of stray animals by citizens.

An informational meeting of potential applicants will be held in the City Hall Council Chambers at 6 p.m. on May 27 to discuss requirements and options stated in the scope of services. Requests for proposals will be required approximately one week later.

Auburn is researching the possibility of establishing its own animal care and control program for the City starting as early as Jan. 1. One component to the program is contracting with an organization to receive and care for animals impounded pursuant to City ordinance, County Code (Title 11 Animals) or the Revised Code of Washington, and possibly owner surrenders and strays.

For more information on submitting a proposal, contact the City’s Human Resources Department at 253-931-3077.
