  • I read a disturbing notification on my facebook page this morning about animals not given blankets to sleep with on the concrete floor because of a manager with an oversized control issue! Let me ask then, isn’t the reason you are there is to help them? If you cannot care for these animals correctly, then maybe you should find a new line of work, perhaps cleaning sewage. You know who you are, and honestly, I don’t know how you sleep at night!!!!!!

    • Hi Theresa, Thank you for contacting the County of San Bernardino regarding your concerns surrounding the care of homeless pets housed at the County’s animal shelter facility located in Devore. This facility maintains animals in a temperature controlled environment and utilizes both radiant overhead and subfloor heating to maintain the animals in warm temperature controlled kennels. The County’s animal shelter facility accepts both towels and blankets and provides bedding for special needs animals such as nursing mothers and their young. Animals housed in kennels also have elevated resting platforms, so the animal can rest above the heated floor surface if the animal desires. In addition, this facility heats the kennels and buildings with a combination of propane and electric heating elements and has a back-up generator in place to ensure heating is provided even during times in which a power outage may occur. The County appreciates this opportunity to clarify any inaccurate statements which may be circulating on social media and we hope you will encourage others to consider adopting a homeless pet from one of the County’s animal shelter facilities.

      • If this information is accurate and ALL heat sources are being utilized then why are some pets coming out of the shelter with frostbite?
