The person who manages the Salvation Army Harbor Light men's shelter on N. Main was at the Near Northside PIP meeting tonight. My main takeaways were that she is willing to have a dialogue with the community, they have 24 hour security now, they have begun giving those who stay overnight the option to stay there during the day and they have stopped feeding those who do not stay there.
"Excuse me, that is my bowl... um, are you going to save me any of that?"

Too many dogs, too little space, letting them run loose in the street then this https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByKgCOhUfbvSU29GOUluQmpTZ1FXUFY1NFNYUlI5dm5mbER3/view?usp=sharing
Squish, the crooked-faced puppy with a locking jaw, was set to be euthanized at the shelter to prevent further suffering. Then, a second opinion determined Squish was the victim of intentional blunt force trauma. Veterinarians felt Squish would need extensive jaw surgeries and ongoing treatment to survive. One of those surgeries was performed by our Dr. Fred Willaims Jr. of BluePearl - San Antonio. Squish’s life, once scheduled to end due to his disability, is full now.
We already knew that dogs can be heroes. It's nice to know they watch out for heroes, too. Thanks to all the veterans and to these dogs that serve them.
