Bad choices & bad management keep the kill rate high at BARC

Greg Damianoff has been managing BARC since  late 2009 yet BARC's kill rate remains high.  This is unacceptable to citizens of Houston. 

For 6 YEARS, since September 2009, the city of Houston has had a step-by-step guide detailing how to end shelter killing.  This guide was written specifically for BARC by international No Kill sheltering expert, Nathan Winograd,  yet the city of Houston has ignored most of his recommendations for almost 3 years.  

There are now approximately 200 communities, representing approximately 500 cities and towns with Open Admission shelters who are saving over 90% to 100% of all animals entering their doors.  There are dozens of these communities right here in Texas. BARC could be No Kill by now too if BARC had been rigorously implementing Winograd's recommendations since 2009.  Instead BARC, under Greg Damianoff's management, continues to kill thousands of healthy and treatable pets.

You can stop this. As city council, you can demand leadership for BARC who will end the killing.

This is an election year, and I vote.
