Almost Home Humane Society will be receiving more money from Lafayette this year and next.
The city’s Board of Works has approved a contract which provides $150,000 for animal sheltering services in 2013 and 2014.
That represents an increase of six-point-four-percent from the current agreement.
In 2012, Almost Home took in 2,081 animals.
Of those, 1,515 were either placed with adoptive owners, returned to original owners or transferred to other shelters.
Five-hundred-fifty-six animals were euthanized.
