Clear Lake Shores - That's sad. Thats probably equal to catering for a council meeting.

Truly.

With a Kill Rate over 60% last month (well over 300 deaths) the responsible discussion should be on making the ARC a No Kill shelter (a place that takes care of homeless animals). Bickering over pennies per person in Galveston County will not solve the problem. A full time crematorium "specialist" will not solve the problem. The ARC should be getting out of the business of killing -- not promoting a crematorium (which apparently is one of the "Animal Resources"?) The people funding the ARC should be helping the Health District with all the money needed to become a No Kill shelter ASAP -- adequate veterinary care for sick and injured animals, etc. No excuses.

So, consideration of available funding should be off the table?

Richard Gilreath

Killing healthy and treatable animals needlessly should be off the table. Then plan how to apply available funding. Experience in No Kill communities shows that a No Kill mission draws community support, including volunteers of all kinds and funding. Politicians will likely support additional tax funding for a mission the community supports (or they can expect to find themselves on the wrong side of history).

A business based on the possibility of funding itself by having taxes raised on citizens who may not share the ideology of the business.
Sounds like government work...

I love dogs, too.
I'd probably kick in a hundred bucks a year or so.
I'd not expect people who don't, to do...
