The story of Herbie the Cat. A horror of shelter life.
2-1/2 hrs from being saved... his second chance at life ended
Killed because no one cared to do their job

The official line from Brevard Animal Services BASE} is Herbie could not be adopted because he was a 'rescue' cat. What's the difference? Saving a life is saving a life. Herbie could have been put on hold long enough so it could be determined how to find out more about my adopting him. If they want to save animals they will do whatever is necessary to do so. I contacted the Rescue coordinator as did a friend who received a return e-mail confirming my interest. This is a common line given by BASE because they do not have a SOP covering these events. This type thing has happened time and again. Community rescue groups have tried to get BASE to set a procedure that would eliminate these type of needless deaths. It is a part of the mismanagement of the shelters and the indifference too many staff and employees demonstrate toward sheltered animals.#Herbiethecat

Now the County Commission wants to privatize animal services.  But Herbie the Cat even in death has made a difference. Cat cages were nearly empty last week because of adoptions  by outside rescue groups who are banding together to do want animals services want do. Save animal lives.
