Protecting Animals in Prince George's

By Marisa Katz

By Rodney Taylor

Regarding "Animal Shelter Chief Quits, Citing Clash with County":

First, our team of dedicated staff members and volunteers at the Prince George's County Animal Services Facility is committed to the care and welfare of all animals housed in our facility. We will maintain this commitment, as county law requires, even as we make the transition to new management.

Second, we are committed to increasing pet adoption rates, fostering the participation of animal rescue groups and reducing euthanasia rates. We will add staff for this effort while maintaining an efficient operating budget.

In July, we will move into a new 37,000-square-foot facility that will allow us to house more animals. It will have separate air supplies that will decrease respiratory ailments among the animals. The facility will have a spay/neuter clinic, a dog park and a community training room.

We want to assure every resident that we will offer the high-quality service that our animals deserve.

The writer is associate director of the Prince George's County Animal Management Group.
