Town Hall Meeting w/ Directors of LA County's Animal Shelters

Hundreds of adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized every day in Los Angeles City and County municipal shelters for lack of space, it's GOT TO STOP. LA 4 Animals Foundation recently called for a Town Hall Meeting to the Board of Supervisors who reside over LA County Animal Care and Control. Their response? 'It is an inappropriate forum'. This is America, and it is the exact appropriate forum given the distance the Directors of LA County Shelters keep from the community they serve. You know, those who pay their salaries.

If governing parties don't hear a loud outcry from those they are supposed to be representing, they don't care. It's as simple as that. If all of us push for a public forum to happen, it will open up discussion, answer questions, inspire debate and help the homeless animals yet to come. If those in charge are not doing their jobs, and if the public is not satisfied with their performance...new leadership should be found and implemented in those high paying positions.

The Directors of LA Animal Care and Control positions dictate life or death of LA County's lost and homeless pets. In this crisis climate, the leadership of this department should possess the qualities of innovation, team spirit and motivation. Unfortunately for all animal lovers, and especially this celebrated county's homeless animals, what seems to be stuck in place are drone-like fixtures, who are more 'showtime' than productive. More politically motivated than truly caring about animals. IT'S GOT TO CHANGE.

It's the American way to assemble and talk progress. The fact that LA Animal Care and Control 'kill at will', yet are unwilling to meet with the public they serve to discuss improvements is now in the hands of those who want change.

A Town Hall Forum will be sure to get lots of press, what is needed to expose the reality and gain public support to make improvements and changes needed to create a more humane animal care system.

PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE! This meeting could be a turning point for the shelters of LA County, and save countless homeless pets who will die if we don't address this crisis and band together to stop it. ALSO, PLEASE COMMENT. THE COMMENTS ARE POWERFUL AND WILL BE READ BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS.

      Everyone - they say you cannot fight city hall, often times, that's the only way they'll listen and move on an issue. The animals dying in shelters every day indicates there are non-progressive people at the helm. This is the start of an ongoing campaign to eradicate the bureaucracy that is costing so many precious lives.

      I see what happens via Facebook every day in these shelters - through the pictures of those who volunteer there...

      We need to be a 'no kill' leader, not a slaughter house.

      I used to live in Los Angeles, and the Stray Cat Alliance and other animal groups are working wonders. Team up with them! You will be seen as part of the solution, and not an evil heartless part of the problem.

      They don't deserve to die for the careless fault of despicable humans.
