BARC Staff Mistankenly Euthanizes Dog with Tags

February 27, 2007

Ugh. This story is painful. I feel so badly for this woman and her poor, dear dog.

The director of BARC, Kent Robertson, admits that they failed in a number of areas. There are improvements being made at BARC, but it seems to be an uphill battle. It’s a typical City bureaucracy. And it has a long history of problems. I’ve talked to long-time volunteers who say it’s so much better today than it used to be.

I’m anxious to see BARC a whole lot better than it is today. Change can happen if people get involved. Just watching a sensational news report and then bitching about it won’t help.

Come out to BARC. Grab a leash and walk a dog. Bring your newspapers to line puppy and cat kennels. Donate towels, laundry soap, dog shampoo, canned puppy food, canned cat food, and milk replacement formula to Friends of BARC or Saving Animals.

Adopt a pet from BARC. Tell your friends to adopt a pet from BARC.
