Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson/Council: Build New Kennel, Create Rescue Coordinator Position

Offputting, inaccesible, and in the bowels of Cleveland, the City Kennel desperately FIRST needs a paid Rescue Coordinator position, and SECOND a new kennel in a location that affords livable conditions for visitors/adopters. Our kennel operates on an arbitrary basis, and the mayor and council continually turn a deaf ear to thousands of pleas. Perhaps leaders wrongly assume other pressing matters take precedence, but let's send the message that the way animals are treated is tantamount to how people are treated. Cleveland is a large city, and its animals -- and the people who work at the Kennel -- deserve better. This is an exciting time for animals in Ohio, Right now, a strong and growing corps of animals activists are also seeking to make animal abuse and cruelty a felony in Ohio. Let's start with what many consider Ohio's largest city, CLEVELAND, by bringing it into the 21st century, and improving conditions for animals and workers in our City Kennel!

      The City of Cleveland Kennel is a sad and sorry place. It is inaccessible and foreboding. The poor folks at the Kennel get their hearts broken day after day, as they try valiantly to rescue our companions that have, by no fault of their own, ended up there.

      Every animal should have a safe and livable place to call home, even if it's temporary.

      This is very important to give the animals housed in the current facility a chance at live. The current facility is hard to find. It is not open after five p.m. to give people a chance to rescue a deserving animal. The current location is barren and not people friendly or animal friendly. We can and must do better as a society to protect those that can not protect themselves.

      I love animals and killing them is not the solution. All they want is to be loved and part of a family. The CAC doesn't even have a vet on duty. I network these dogs every single day to save them as they deserve a good life.

      If you were in need of a safe haven, be it a hospital, homeless shelter or police station, wouldn't you appreciate a safe, dedicated environment with a supportive staff and proper facilities?
