Police Chief Dallis Warren Declares No-Kill As the Ultimate Goal of the City Shelter

Tuesday June 28th, 2016 Rosenberg, Texas Police Chief Dallis Warren presented a draft of an updated shelter policy along with a new volunteer handbook for volunteers.

Police Chief Warren who oversees the Rosenberg Animal Shelter operations declared No Kill “is a great goal to have and that is the direction in which we (City of Rosenberg) want the city to go.” Chief Warren estimated between 80%-85% rate (unspecified) for the month of June. He remarked that was an improvement and he wanted to keep moving in that direction. He asserted that No Kill is the ultimate goal.

Police Chief Warren received collective support from the city council. Councilwoman Jozwiak emphasized there was nobody who loves their animals more than they do. She assured the citizens and animal welfare groups that the council takes this matter seriously because it is important to them just as all issues are. She stated very clearly that the council will enhance the improvement process and continue to make it better.

Councilman Benton on the other hand, exclaimed that he wished the City of Rosenberg was not in the animal control business. He recommended consolidation with the county shelter simply because there has been too many problems with the city animal shelter recently. (No questions or concerns were raised to determine if the county shelter is in a condition to expand.)

Mayor McConathy made a recommendation to hold a public meeting to allow dialogue between the public and the council and also discussions of suggestions and recommendations. Concerned animal lovers signed up for this on site.
