Dover Shores Pet Care Center, a private veterinary <br />hospital in Costa Mesa, housed Newport Beach animals from 1991- 2011. In December <br />2010, the owner of Dover Shores Pet Care Center submitted his written notice of intent <br />to terminate the agreement. <br />The City entered into an extensive Request for Proposal (RFP) process to replace the <br />agreement with Dover Shores Pet Care Center. The RFP focused on an increased level <br />of care for the animals, the proximity to Newport Beach, cost of service, and stability of <br />the organization providing the service. In February 2011, the City issued an RFP <br />15-1 <br />
