The County Animal Shelter Next to the Town Incinerator

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (12-12-2022) #809C: Ashley Hermans is the Director of Animal Services for the county shelter in Bastrop County Texas, which is right outside Austin — but could be a million miles away for the difference in funding and the facility — which is right next to the town incinerator. Ashley explains how she took matters into her own hands and joined the Board of Directors of a private non-profit that is raising funds to buy 15 acres and build an Animal Care Campus, where the underserved people and their animals in her area will get state-of-the-art care.
