Some good news from the Pasco Animal Shelter.


You’ve probably heard of the lawsuit brought by the City of Pasco against the operators of the animal shelter just off “A” Street. On November 5, we told you that the city took legal action because officials from Neo Nation, who held the contract, allegedly took bonuses for themselves.

There were also allegations of other financial mismanagement and the contract was terminated.

But now, the good news!

According to Pasco police and other officials, there are plans to move forward with a new shelter.

According to Pasco PD, here’s what’s going to happen in the near future:

“Employees of the Benton-Franklin Humane Society as contracted by the Tri-City Animal Control Authority (ACA). These staff members do their best to take care of the animals and help community members meet animal control needs. ACA Cities ask you to express your gratitude and patience to these Humane Society employees who are dedicated to the safety, health and welfare of the animals in the community.

The Humane Society will continue to operate the Animal Shelter and Control for ACA for the time being, as the towns of Pasco, Kennewick and Richland that make up the ACA define the next steps in the long-term solution for control operations. animals.. “

However, the ACA is continuing with plans to move forward with building a new shelter over the next few months, despite COVID roadblocks and engineering delays. All of our pets at home are rescued from the shelter, including our “sausage dog” Caesar the chihuahua!
