Buffalo's City Council, at their last meeting, approved $3,000 for maintenance at the St. Francis Animal Shelter.
Director Susan Guilford approached the council, saying the shelter was in need of replacing cat kennels and repairing a dog run area adjacent to the building.
Giilford said in addition to regular maintenance needs, the shelter has seen an increase from around 30 cats and kittens just a short while ago to now having a population around 70.
She explained more about their need to the council.
The council approved the request for $3,000 to go to the shelter's maintenance issues.
The money for the repairs will come from the city's Building Maintenance Fund and will be paid upon a receipt being presented to the council.
