    by: MelanieS

    The current shelter director has made great strides, as far as the care of the animals at this facility. Today I dropped by and the dogs had Kuranda beds and blankets, and everything was clean in the dog area.\r\n\r\nAs to the negative, the cat cages are tiny, and there is simply not enough dog runs for the amount of animals that continue to come in.\r\n\r\nIf you live in this County, please contact the Board of Supervisors and ask them to purchase a new facility or expand this one, and ask them to add on a much needed second staff member.

    Pros

    working hard with rescue groups

    Cons

    desperatel need a new facility

    As your name implies, you are engaged with animal overpopulation. Hopefully this means that you are actively engaged with spay and neutering. There are right and wrong ways to deal with overpopulation.
