A large number of county wide residents brought their interest and energy to City Hall August 8th for the first meeting of The Humane Animal Shelter of San Saba (HASSS). Several topics were discussed, introductions were made and when the dust settled, it was apparent there was a sizeable group of volunteers anxious to move forward with the formation of a Humane Shelter. Individuals with experience, talent and just plain “want to help spirit,” were there. It was very encouraging to finally get that many people together interested in providing long term care and placement for animals that are neglected, abused or abandoned.During the meeting an organizational committee was formed to begin the preliminary task of getting some of the many aspects of the shelter prioritized.
