San Bernardino City Animal Shelter Left Optionless Due to Overcrowding

San Bernardino City Animal Shelter Left Optionless Due to Overcrowding

SAN BERNARDINO – A heart-wrenching letter was broadcasted by email to multiple parties on Wednesday afternoon from the San Bernardino City Animal Control Manager.

In the email, Oscar Perez said that over a dozen large dogs were at risk of being euthanized on Wednesday due to space constraints at the San Bernardino City Shelter. The fact that dogs kept arriving; both large and injured, made it impossible to house all of them along with those who are endanger of being euthanized. When sixteen arrivals came into the shelter on Wednesday, not to mention the 10 puppies that arrived from a homeless camp, the shelter was in need of immediate kennel space.

Perez indicated that he was hopeful that the puppies would be taken in by a rescue or someone adopting since they are immediately available for adoption. Those from local rescues immediately were upset by this possibility believing that the problem could be alleviated if animal owners would spay/neuter and keep their pets in a safe and secure yard when weather permits, and indoors on cold, windy, or rainy days.

24/7 Headline News was unable to reach a San Bernardino City Animal Shelter spokesperson on Wednesday evening for an update. Information will be updated as it becomes available. If anyone is looking for a pet to adopt you can save a life by rescuing a shelter pet. The San Bernardino City Shelter is located at 333 Chandler Place in the City of San Bernardino.
