Whose job is it to inspect facilities calling themselves animal shelters in Uvalde Co, TX? That person (or persons) needs to be fired. Because while they were sleeping, animals were suffering at the Uvalde Animal Shelter.
An anonymous whistleblower posted 2 clips to YouTube – the first one is about 9 minutes long and shows severely neglected dogs at the Uvalde Animal Shelter. They still wag their tails when the person with the camera comes around, which is heartbreaking to see. The second clip is about 3 minutes in length and shows the cats. There’s no wagging here – just cats suffering. I almost shut it off half way through as it’s very difficult to watch.
Warning: Videos contain disturbing images of suffering pets and multiple pet carcasses in various states of decay.

As if this injustice wasn’t enough, Uvalde Co officials made an agreement with the so-called shelter which frees the organization from prosecution. In exchange for surrendering the animals, the Uvalde Animal Shelter agreed to pay $12,500 in fines and to shut down for 3 months. So I guess in 3 months, the people who perpetrated these crimes against animals can hang their shingle out again. Or they could probably do it sooner because, you know – it’s not like anyone’s checking.
The only good news out of this tragic situation is that, of the 200+ animals seized, 186 are still alive and in the care of rescuers.
