City of Brenham Animal Services Experiencing Overcrowding Due to Intake of Diseased Animals
The City of Brenham Animal Services (BAS) is accepting cats on an emergency basis, at this time. According to Animal Services Manager, Allison Harper, shelters throughout the state are experiencing high levels of disease such as mycoplasma, ringworm, coccidia and parvo. This outbreak, combined with public requests to take in as many as 10 – 20 animals at a time, puts stress on the shelter’s population and staff. At the onset of COVID 19, BAS implemented a Managed Intake Policy which includes enhanced alternatives to bringing animals to the shelter. The public is asked to contact animal services as soon as possible before bringing animals to the shelter as this allows for better preparation for both staff and the animals. ID is required for any transaction at the Pet Adoption Center.
For animal intake or additional questions, please contact Animal Services at 979-337-7391.
