Visited the BAS recently to donate some items. While there I noticed a small dog that was pregnant I mentioned this to the shelter work that she should be checked by a vet.. she was terribly underweight and looked sick. She said they didn't have a vet..I was shocked and asked what happens when there is a sick animal. They are put down!! There are lot's of vets around WHY can't they volunteer some of their time..
if they took turns of something..these poor animals
need help it is so sad. We adopted the dog..took her
to a vet and she was suffering from malnutrition and was skin and bones she also was coughing and sneezing well she wasn't given much hope. May not even be able to deliver the puppies. We took her home started giving her antibiotics and vitamins.
Today she had three little puppies and seems to be
doing better. One tough little dog is all I can say
Please someone needs to step up and help down there.

Doesn't sound like much of a "shelter" does it? I wouldn't have imagined an animal shelter not having vet resources! Sounds like a roof and a needle except when SOON adopted!
When someone does want to adopt, doesn't the "shelter" provide or require neutering etc?

yea but they give you a voucher that covers a certain amount of it.

Baytown animal shelter is a fuckin joke, the people that run it are a joke, and the douchebag that sits in his office on defee is a fucking joke.

i know someone that has worked there for over 4 years and that facility would rather euthanize most of the animals than actually get them adopted.

But you must also look at it as a catch 22 type of situation. The shelter can only handle so many animals before you "have to make room" somewhere...And with the amount of calls coming in for viscious animal here, or stray dogs there....the more calls the shelter receives about loose dogs and cats and whatnot, the quicker the shelter gets stacked with animals nobody wants or can take care of.

My suggestion is.....if you see a stray dog, and you think you can help it, otherwise its gettin the drink....

This is so sad. However, I think it is all about the money. Local vets want the time to volunteer to help the helpless animals.

My daughter, who is now away in college would bring strays home and nurse them back to health and then find them homes. I imagine that she saved a lot of animals lives by doing that.

Stop demanding these people donate their time! Why don't you donate your time to earning a degree in vet medicine and then YOU go donate your time at the shelter.

News flash! Volunteering one's time is VOLUNTARY. And one of you even has the gall to call them greedy. And all this over stray animals.

then refer back to my post. The local vets have their own practices to run, just like you go to your job whenever you work.

The Baytown Animal Control "shelter" really does so little for the animals. They do not work with any vet, provide any vaccinations, or any medical care for the animals. They don't have any volunteering programs or fostering programs. They don't promote the animals on any social media, they don't hold adoptions events. They are really closed minded when it comes to helping the animals getting adopted. I don't know if is the Manager who has no clue how to properly run the shelter or the City that limits her options. I just wish they would start being more proactive.
