Compassionate shelter management. It’s a phrase you hear tossed around a lot in the world of rescue, but it’s something that seems elusive all too often.
At Harris County Animal Shelter though, they may not have the biggest budget, the newest facility, or the best location, but one thing they do have that tops many others is compassionate shelter management.
Dr. White, the shelter director, exemplifies a commitment to saving lives not just with his words, but also with his actions.
Janelle was found by Janelle Bludau KHOU tied to the shelter fence early one morning... Even worse, she was pregnant! When no one else stepped up to foster her and her soon-to-be family, Dr. White swooped in and saved the day without hesitation.
He didn’t do it for the media.
He didn’t do it for praise.
He did it because that is simply who he is. After a long, hard day of work at the shelter, he comes home to help Momma Janelle feed her 11 babies.
This is just one of many stories we could tell you about the wonderful staff of the Harris County Animal Shelter.
To all the shelter staff, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for all you do for these animals!
