Over the past few years I have witnessed several horrific incidents occur at Amarillo Animal Welfare Management. This MUST end NOW!
I will work hard to implement a no kill animal shelter. To clarify – a no kill shelter is simply an animal shelter that maintains a %90 live release rate. While some will inquire about the cost, the reality is, we do not need an entirely “new shelter”, what we need is a new attitude and strong oversight.
I will work hard to ensure we have individuals on staff who are vetted, experienced and competent that will work with our animal rescue organizations, ALL of them, not just a select chosen few, to help save adoptable pets.
I understand that space has been an issue for quite some time. I will work hard to remedy this to ensure adequate space is available.
These are common sense solutions that have been overlooked for far too long. The safety & welfare of our animals shouldn’t be a game of politics and numbers. We must ensure humane treatment and safety of all animals in our community. We MUST do better!
