The SLO County Animal Shelter has received a long-awaited report about its operations, but hasn’t yet released it to the public.
The report, by the Humane Society of the U.S., was commissioned by county supervisors at a cost of about $23,000, following complaints by volunteers and others. It explores virtually all aspects of the shelter’s operations, according to Beau Archer of the Society.
Eric Anderson, the shelter director, said he has delayed the report’s release until he and staff review it and come up with a response.
Archer said it’s not unusual for organizations to delay the release of a report as they review it.
Archer said the report is “very in-depth,” looking at everything from the shelter’s facilities to its management.
