June Mason is being let go at Jacksonville Animal Care & Protective Services due to Budget Cuts. They are putting someone in her position with no experience in Adoptions or Rescue.

June as been instrumental in helping cut euthanasia numbers at this shelter from a high of 19,242 in 2007 to 9,323 last year.. This year the shelter was named the Outstanding Animal Control Agency of the Year for Florida. Recognized out of more than 130 agencies in the state. She reaches out to rescues all over the State to save the animals at this shelter.

We feel the loss of June Mason will cause more animals to die at this shelter. Please also send an email to Scott Trebatoski at trebatos@coj.net Director at Jacksonville Animal Care & Protective Services and Mayor Brown at MayorBrown@COJ.NET. Please let them know how you feel.

      This is the reasoning behiind Jacksonville Animal Care & Protective Services in replacing June this does not explain a thing and lacks any logic. Please post to them and tell them June Mason needs to stay if we are going to continue to move towards being a NO KILL City https://www.facebook.com/jaxanimalcare

      "The City is committed to the health and welfare of animals. The list of employees contained people who are impacted by the reduction in force, not the positions being eliminated. The position of Animal Adoptions/Rescue Coordinator is still in the City’s budget for the new fiscal year beginning October 1, 2012 and it is fully funded. Due to the reduction in force, the City is in the process of identifying who will fill the position. The employee identified must meet the requirements for the job. We do not expect the position to be unfilled any time during this transition period."
