Montgomery County may start 30-day animal shelter plan

Published 7:06 pm, Monday, October 24, 2016

Montgomery County commissioners will discuss implementing a 30-day plan for the animal shelter for possible transition to new management.

Commissioners Court is scheduled to start 9:30 a.m. today on the fourth floor of the Alan B. Sadler Building, located at 501 N. Thompson.

Precinct 3 Commissioners James Noack placed the plan for the shelter on the agenda for discussion and possible adoption. He and Precinct 2 Commissioner Charlie Riley presented it during a public workshop Oct. 5.

The plan outlines a “cultural shift,” including better communication between the staff and fosters, a cohesive and meaningful volunteer program, properly maintained facilities, a plan to engage the community and for employees to take ownership and initiative.

Noack also placed an item on the agenda following Woodlands-based attorney Eric Yollick‘s proposal to launch a nonprofit organization to take over the operation and management of the shelter.

According to the proposal dated Oct. 15, Yollick outlines a six-member board, a plan to lease the shelter building from the county for $1 annually, a schedule for the county to pay the nonprofit to run the shelter with that payment stepping down each month from $283,333.33 in November to $83,333.33 in September 2017. The proposal also states the organization would implement Noack and Riley’s plan and bring the shelter in compliance with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Standards for Animal Shelters by Dec. 15.

“None of this proposal has anything to do with Eric Yollick being an animal shelter expert, because I am not one,” said Yollick, noting his proposal provides solutions to the issues the shelter faces. “It opens the shelter up to volunteers who want to be involved, volunteers that want to run the shelter, volunteers that want to manage the shelter.”
