    Bastrop County Animal Control serves the rural county of Bastrop, Texas. Serving such a large and rural area, and the difficulties that come with such demographics is pains-taking.\n\nI brought a mother and puppy stray into the shelter. They went out of their way to make my collection of the animal and drop off at the shelter as easy as possible for me.\n\nThe shelter is clean and well run. \n\nIt is clear the managers have the animals' interests in their hearts, minds and actions.

    Pros

    User friendly, flexible, clean, caring people

    Cons

    none

    Betty Wade and her staff do a fantastic job. I have worked at the shelter on many different occasions and I found Betty and her employees to be the most caring people I have ever met. They deal with some of the saddest things I have ever seen and do it with much compassion. I have known Betty Wade for over 20 years and I appreciate everything she has done for Bastrop County Animal Control.

    Pros

    Loving people doing a very hard job for little pay.

    Cons

    I can think of no cons
