The Niagara County SPCA said it plans to stop providing dog control services in the City of Niagara Falls on Monday after contract talks have broken down between the two sides.
The SPCA's board voted unanimously Wednesday night to end those services, but will continue to provide rescue and cruelty prevention servies, the agency said in a news release.
The last contract between the city and the agency expired at the end of 2011, and the agency's actual costs for services in the city have been far greater than what the city wants to pay, according to the agency.
"The Niagara County SPCA is not in a financial position to continue subsidizing animal control services for the city," Board President Michelle D. Madigan said in a written statement.
Calls to Corporation Counsel Craig H. Johnson were not immediately returned.
