Texas woman took control of animal shelter and reduced euthanasia rate by 100% to zero
Before Kayla Denney took over an animal shelter in Taft, Texas, the death rate was almost 100%. But in just five months, Denney managed to bring that figure to 0%.
Kayla quit her job as an accountant to pursue her dream of helping save animals. She took a job as an animal control officer but also works as a shelter manager.
When she started working, the city shelter was down and had no electricity. He was in desperate need of repair, but because his budget was limited, supplies were very minimal.
As Denise Hitt, the city manager, said, “We had what they call” blue juice “to euthanize animals.”
Police chief John Cornish recalled that before Kayla arrived, “Every Wednesday was the day of the killing. It was horrible.”
John dreamed of the day when there could be a death shelter in the city. When Kayla arrived, this dream came true.
The first thing she did was to post on her personal Facebook page to request supplies, donations and asked no one to post negative comments. Her post went viral in her local town, and she was able to collect more than 800 boxes of supplies to help transform the shelter. open Next Page To See Video
