PECOS, Texas – There are lots of cute dogs and cats at the Pecos Animal Control Facility, but not everyone gets a permanent home, so a push is needed now to secure plenty of animals than not being killed.
The shelter has worked hard to get their animals into safe new homes, and now the folks at Pecos are doing everything they can to save those furry friends.
After three sibling dogs were sent to areas outside of Texas, looking for a new home or opportunity in a new home, the pups became an inspiration to the community.
“They were ground transported from Seattle to Portland and now they are with the OTAT and it’s a Portland institution, so they can be adopted in Portland,” said Pecos Animal Control Supervisor, Kristi Wright said.
“We can overload this facility every day,” says Wright.
The shelter said that, like many other shelters, they continue to be inundated by animals regularly, and while they worked as hard as they could to forever find their home, it took them a village. .
Right now, so many people are taking the opportunity to do everything they can to raise funds to find more homes for the animals.
Pecos resident Cindy Pietro said: “After seeing that story we were just inspired to do something to help, there is so much fundraising that can be done to help a home. ”
Pecos Animal Control is supported by Trans Pecos Dusty Paws Rescue, which helps them raise more money to help care for the animals.
“Where those funds go is paid directly to the veterinarian and pays for any transportation costs associated with the animals being taken out,” Wright adds.
But even if the organization provides some funding for the shelter, sometimes it’s not enough, and the community wants to do more.
Pietro said: “We know how important it is to raise some funds to help the home, because it is a problem here.
