Animal Shelter Still Needs Work

Animal_Shelter_2013TAMPA — The higher-ups at Hillsborough County’s animal shelter still have work to do in better managing the pet population, not to mention the employees who care for the dogs and cats who wind up there.

That’s the upshot of two separate reports from independent experts engaged by the county to recommend ways to cut down on illness among animals at the shelter, speed up adoptions and lessen strife among employees.

Both reports, issued late last month, commended the county for seeking ways to lower the number of animals that are euthanized at the shelter each year. Better management of the animal population and communication of expectations by the head of the shelter to rank-and-file employees should help further the goal, they say.
