CITY OF DEL RIO: Make it mandatory for animal control to provide Vet care to All sick or injured animals they recieve.
Animal cruelty is becoming a BIG problem in Del Rio Texas. This needs to change. A dog was attacked by a pitbull and animal control hosed him off and left him in a cage to die, denying a local rescue organization (who were willing to provide vet care) access to the dog, the dog recieved no vet care from animal control. After some publicity the dog was released to the rescue 8 hours after animal control had recieved him. A huge attempt was made to save him but the 8 hours of neglect had taken its toll and the dog lost his fight for life. We need to make sure this does not happen again.
