received zero deficiencies during a recent inspection by officials from the Texas Department of Human Services The accomplishment was announced last week by Kirk wood Manors new administrator Norm Custer This is a very prestigious accom plishment and is achieved by only very few nursing homes and no other facil ity inNew Braunfels during 1993 and 1994 to said Custer This rep resents all areas encompassing health care within the facility We are most fortunate to have the expertise and leadership of Dr Carlos Campos our medical director to over see our health care policies and care provided to our he said Dr Norm CU8ter Campos is a leader and a respected physician in Our medical The inspec tion was Jan 1720 Custer said the inspectors look at anything related to health care and all aspects related to resi dents in the facility Some examples of items covered Residents Orle Williamson Col in the inspecHoward Craig with medical director Dr tioni include Carlos Campos nutrition skin condition rehabilitation and general health A team of five inspectors is used including two nurses a generalist pharmacist and social worker The team looks at the entire population of the nursing home to ensure that it maintains minimum standards of Texas licensing said Custer Its a thorough inspec This coveted achievement is reflective of the highest standards of professionalism of the entire staff at Kirkwood Manor New Braunfels is fortunate to have four nursing homes to meet the communitys said Custer Kiikwopd Manor receives excellent support from McKen na Memorial Hospital and the many competent physicians that have patients at Kirkwood he said Custer believes the residents of Kirkwood receive excel lent health care and he promised that the nursing home would not only continue the same standards but will also seek improvements Health care is so dynamic that we must be innovative proactive not reactive and never become complacent with the status Custer became administrator of Kirkwood in August He said the staff at Kirkwood is one of the very best he has worked with in 27 years Abandoned dogs face uncertain future at animal shelter Former owners leave dogs abandoned near Guadalupe River with notes tied around their necks telling their names By ROGER CROTEAU City Editor Dezi and Chloe were lucky Most dogs abandoned by their owners in Comal County end up dead from starvation or disease or run over by a car or shot by a rancher protecting his flock Or they are found so emaciated and sick that they have to be destroyed But Dezi and Chloe were lucky They were found within days perhaps hours after being dumped by their owners along the Guadalupe River They had notes tied to their necks telling their names and saying they have their shots and are friendly dogs who need a home Now they are at the Humane Society of New Braunfels animal shelter waiting to be adopted With spring approaching officials at the Humane Society know they will see hundreds more animals brought in like Dezi and Chloe abandoned by their owners along the side of the road they know that the aninoals that make it to the shelter are just the tip of the iceberg For every one that makes it to the shelter several more will die cruel deaths alone and often waiting where they were dumped Waiting for an owner that will never return In January we got 99 dogs In May we will get 199 or said Cheryl Krueger director of the Humane Society animal shelter And we will see lots of dumped litters of kittens and puppy litters The puppies and kittens dumped along the road sides have it the hardest They are too young to find water and will last only a day or two in the Texas sun Often fire ants find the young ones making their deaths even more agonizing Older dogs have a slightly better chance of survival if they can learn to hunt And they generally turn to the sheep and goats raised by ranchers in the county They are the easiest prey but there is also a risk involved Lots of dogs in Comal County get shot because they go and attack sheep or Krueger said Dogs can take down a whole flock We have a guy down the street from our shelter with goats Some dogs abandoned here got into his goats not long ago ft is just a blood sport for Ranchers in the county suffer heavy losses from dogs both abandoned dogs and family pets let out to roam at night Spring also brings an increase in reports of dog bites Krueger said The kids are out playing and they see a stray and try to play with it and get bitten The strays will also attack Krueger also noted that hundreds of unvacdnated abandoned dogs and cats roaming the county drasti cally increase the chances of a serious rabies outbreak here There has been only one rabid bat found in the county in the last year but rabies is a serious problem in the region she said Most people dump their pets because they imagine the pets will be found and adopted But that is a rar ity Krueger said and the animals have a much bet ter erf finding a home if they are brought to the Humane Society shelter Then even if they are not adopted they will be humanely euthanized instead of the slow painful deaths they often race in the wild And abandoning an animal is a Class A misde meanor punishable by up to a find and a year in jail The problem is that there are simply more dogs and cats than there arc hones for them Krueger said and bility for their animals Spaying and neutering is so important because then we would not have all the unwanted pets we have to put to sleep every she said Anyone interested in adopting a pet can call the Humane Society shelter at 6295287 Dtzl and Chloe were lucky when they wtre found onryiihort time ttny win dumped off new They now adoption No 73 Dont miss Horizons 94 Coming March 27 in the
