Someone to Know: Port Aransas Animal Lover Connie Beane

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

For the past three years, she has dedicated to the care and wellbeing of cats and dogs in the Coastal Bend. Many say she sets the example when it comes to taking care of our furry friends.

Connie Beane helps run the non-profit group Animal Friends of Port Aransas. For the past several years, she along with other volunteers assist the Port Aransas Animal Control Shelter in looking to find new forever homes for furry friends. The animal rescue group promises to spay, neuter and vaccinate any of the cats for anyone interested in adopting them.

Beane said the group is also dedicated to supporting the Port Aransas Animal Control Shelter by collecting donations and volunteering their time to the shelter. Employees with Port Aransas Animal Control said that Beane is willing to step up to the plate in the event that anyone with Animal Control can't report to work.

"Connie's here every night. If I have to call in sick and I can't get ahold of another employee, I can call Connie," said Jim Williams of Port Aransas Animal Control. "She will come here anytime of the day. She really loves these animals."

"I don't know if the animals need me or I need them," Beane said. "It's a passion. It's something that you just feel and you have to do. You can't walk away once you are here."

Officials with Animal Control said Beane has played an instrumental part in decreasing the amount of animals being euthanized at the Port Aransas Animal Control Shelter.
