New Pet Adoption Coordinator position coming to Health Department

County Commissioners have also approved the creation of a Pet Adoption Coordinator position at the Victoria Health Department.

David Gonzales, the Public Health Director says the shelter is always at near capacity, so this position will help adopt the animals out.

Gonzales adds this position will also help the animal control officers out in different capacities.

“In addition to the adoption piece, it also will help the animal control officers get out in the field a little more to help take care of some of the calls that we have for stray animals and aggressive animals too. So its kind of a two fold benefit to the department as a whole,” said David Gonzalez, Public Health Director.

The position will start off as a part-time position but could increase to full time in the future.

They will post the job hopefully by the end of the week or next week.
