Re: “A Letter From Dogpatch

I agree with most of what was said by the person commenting. I too know Trissy. She is correct about some animals not being treated right away. Those of us that work at PACC have all seen it. A dog or cat hit by a car or attacked by another animal lying in a cage bleeding and sufferring with know one paying any atttention to it. It's not common place at the Center but it does happen. Usually because we are so understaffed that there is no one to treat the animal. The shelter staff are so over worked, because there aren't enough of them, that they have to call in sick just to get a day off. That only adds to the problem because someone has to fufill the duties of that person that didn't show up for work and now everyone is overworked again. It's a vicious cycle that will continue until Sherry Daniels and Kim Janes start showing some backbone and telling those they answer to that we just can't run an animal shelter with less than half the staff that's needed. I have heard that when the problem has been brought to Mr. Janes his answer is, we are aware of the problems facing the different departments within the Pima Animal Care Center, but the productivity of each department is at an acceptable level and there is no need to hire more staff at this time. When will it be the right time? Pima County's population is over one million people. Along with the people come their pets. The Center hasn't grown and neither has the amount of staff in over fifteen years. Wake up Tucson and Pima County residents. You need to contact your elected officials and demand some changes for the animals. All Pima County officailas need to be replaced. They do a lousy job, not only with PACC but with the county as a whole. Lets start with Huckleberry and work our way down to Kim Janes. Maybe after replacing those who are worthless we can get some action.
