DEPARTMENT RECEIVES GRANT TO PURCHASE
ANIMAL CRUELTY INVESTIGATION KITS

Long Beach, CA- The County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control
(DACC) has been granted $20,000 towards enhancing its capabilities towards
prosecuting animal cruelty cases.  The generous donation, approved by the Board of
Supervisors earlier this year, is provided by the Annenberg Foundation
(www.annenbergfoundation.org<http://www.annenbergfoundation.org>), and will be used
to purchase animal cruelty evidence collection kits for DACC staff.

" This generous donation will help us further our mission of protecting the lives of
the animals by enhancing our ability to collect, protect, and process evidence of
crimes against animals," said DACC Director, Marcia Mayeda. "The animal cruelty
investigation kits will aid our staff in providing hard evidence to support criminal
charges, strengthening our ability to prosecute people who abuse animals," Mayeda
said.
            
The new kits will help DACC staff preserve evidence directly from the
scene of an animal cruelty investigation. Evidence will be preserved in
accordance with scientifically accepted collection methodologies which
will aide in providing better prosecutorial efforts in court.
