Surprise briefing Monday!

Tomorrow, Monday 10/25/2010, the Dallas City Council’s Quality of Life Committee will be briefed by Dallas Animal Services.  The briefing, scheduled to being at 1 p.m. was scheduled without the knowledge of the Animal Shelter Commission, who only accidentally found out about it.  DAS is scheduled to  discuss the background of Dallas Animal Services, including the 2001 HSUS report, an operational overview of Dallas Animal Services, a review of recent events that includes “Manager of Animal Control Resigned” (well, yes, that’s what happens when you tell someone you’re eliminating their position and give them a pink slip!), and a nifty comparison of Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio’s animal control departments.  1st question – Does the City operate a shelter. Duh.  2nd question – “Is there a commission, and how many member are on the Commission?”  Then questions about annual impoundments (stats from 2005), # of animals surrendered and are their drop boxes available?  Read the entire briefing HERE.  If you are interested, it’s open to the public, but there’s no public comment period.

    WE CARE ABOUT THE ANIMALS! And, we’re not going away. You can ignore all of us who are concerned for the animals, but we are legion, and we’re vocal…and, we VOTE!

    Well, I guess the honeymoon is over. Code Compliance made a half-hearted effort at making things right and a big show of cooperation. Seems that Mr. Turner is still trying to make sure everybody knows HE’s in charge, and he apparently has no intention of playing fairly. Maybe the Code folks are getting scared? People can tell the Emperor is wearing no clothes, and they are getting nervous? Do us all a favor, Mr. Turner, and let go of your grasp on Animal Services. You clearly have no objective other than keeping control of your fiefdom and looking good to Madame Manager. Who cares about the animals anyway. Well,
