ANIMAL SHELTERS.. its important to define the difference between these two types of shelters. A municipal shelter is run by a city, county, or other public entity and is funded by taxpayer dollars. Such shelters are staffed by civil servants who may or may not have any experience working with animals. The shelters fall under the auspices of governmental departments such as streets and sanitation, road maintenance, and the like. Their primary job, as defined in municipal codes, is to pick up stray and nuisance animals and reunite lost animals with their owners. Often, a municipal shelter must take in any unwanted animal that is brought in.
A private shelter is funded by private donations and is there to provide a safe haven for lost or displaced animals. Its primary job is to find homes for these animals. This type of facility is staffed by employees and volunteers who, at least theoretically, are knowledgeable about caring for these animals.
PLEASE SUPPORT CHANGE..support the making of a NATIONAL AGENCY a regulatory body..that all the shelters must answer to.
