Port Aransas Animal Shelter needs repairs following Hurricane Harvey

Posted: Updated:

Sam Mullinsssss won't say it to loud but he is fed up.He is the director of the Port Aransas Animal Control Shelter. The facility is in tough shape post-Harvey.

"It's been a disaster," said Mullin.

When Harvey struck 6  short months ago, it heavily damaged the building as well as many, many others in Port Aransas but this one isn't getting fixed.

Shingles were missing, holes in the roof." said Mullin.

And these holes like this one in a hallway ceiling are still there. The insulation of many of the ceilings is long gone and outside this video speaks for itself. Tarps cover the roof but even that doesn't hold the waster back.

"The front office the paper work got ruined twice and you move to the back and you get a leak the next storm, something else is gone and theres a leak there, its been difficult," said Mullin.

And there is the mold. It's on walls and doors and its spreading by the week according to workers. Possible health issues for dogs and for workers. 

When it rains the roof is so bad the dogs get wet.

"If you come in in the morning and they may have been wet from in the evening that type of thing we move them as quickly as possible," said Mullin.

This is a city owned building so what are they doing to fix the problem? We asked Animal Control Supervisor PAPD Sgt. Mike Hannon.

"It's just a resource issue," said Hannon.

According to the city they are going through proper procedures with FEMA to get the repairs done. The roof has to be done first.
