At the Texas Animal Control in Odessa, not one dog was adopted on Tuesday. Not one dog was saved by a rescue organization after volunteers from the group Speaking Up For Those Who Can’t.
“The shelter has 153 animals right now. They can not have more than 150 at closing and animals are still pouring in. They will have to start killing animals if we can’t move some NOW!,” volunteers post on Facebook desperately trying to find help for young, healthy and adoptable pets.

Tragically, the overcrowded conditions at the shelter remains a community problem, and with only a few people wanting to save these dogs, hardly a dent has been made. Shelter volunteers are heartbroken that the dogs in the community don’t have more people fighting for them. And the problem of irresponsible owners still continues and gets worse.
A major part of the problem could be accomplished with spay and neuter programs – either at greatly discounted prices or for free. Approved rescue organizations are encouraged to contact the shelter; there is no charge for these organizations to rescue dogs. All of the dogs are fully vetted ($80 to adopt for private). Please share these dogs and help them find homes before it is too late.
