Poor precious babies. When the economy goes south it is the vulnerable (children, animals, elderly, environment) that suffer most.

very sad so many irresponsible people have caused this situation with so many unwanted animals The government there have to start having laws to make it harder for people to own pets when they are just dumped and treated like this because like all countries these shelters get no government help which is not right They should not just turn a blind eye to cruelty Its not fair or humane

If I had money, I would send it. It hurts to know that animals may die as a result of this. Noted.

Shared all over social media . I hope they don't close bec.I am a No Kill shelter supporter & many animals will needlessly die which would be a terrible shame.

We cannot afford to have any no kill shelters close. They are needed desperately to give our animal friends a chance at forever homes. I hope enough people will protest, so they can stay open. It will be a sad world without these fine shelters doing what they can to help.

We need to make all breeders, including backyard breeders have licenses and that money go to support shelters. We also need to make those that breed or let their animals breed, have to take back all the animals they produced no matter how old or sick the animal is. The shelters have to do this, so should those that breed.

Hope they get the funds to stay open. Spay and neuter is the only answer to the pet overpopulation.

So sad....many of these animals have been literally thrown on the streets and then end up in shelters because of irresponsible pet owners.....I witnessed and rescued a small dog (Norman) thrown out of a truck on a busy highway....luckily, I got him adopted. Thanks for sharing.

Gibt es denn keine Öffentlichen Gelder zur Unterstützung? Es wäre eine Katastrophe für die Tiere, wenn das Tierheim schießt! Habe den Artikel geteilt.

Noted. There is so much that needs to be done and so many cruel bastards that need a very good lesson in do unto the animals as you would have done unto you.

I don't think anyone knows just how much it costs to keep animals in a no-kill shelter. They rely upon donations and volunteers to fill many of the gaps. Things you can do for your local shelter include giving them time for walking /socialization; bringing in any bag of food for either a kitty or dog; bones to clean the dogs' teeth; taking your old sheets, blankets, rags, towels, etc and giving them to them to clean with; providing printer cartridges, taking pictures of the animals, etc. There is so much that doesn't cost a lot, but makes a HUGE difference. Please volunteer today!

You would think that the size of Galveston that there would be an outpouring of help for this shelter. I hope that they've put the word out far and wide to ask for help. the animals are the ones that suffer.

This is why we need laws to make every breeder including backyard breeders have licenses and have to take back every animal they produce, no matter how sick or old the animal is. We have to start making people responsible for the animals they produce. Shelters have to take back the animals if people don't want them, so should the breeders. Until we go after the route of the problem, which is humans, this problem will never come to an end.
