Please sign to call for an investigation of the dishonesty that goes on in this shelter due to their discrimination of certain breeds and their timely put to sleep time. There is mishandling of animals and misinformation reported to prospective adopters to discourage adoption. And even if the adopter is still interested, they can pull the dog and PTS. To increase awareness of what is going on inside this animal shelter. There needs to be a reform/investigation of the practices at Devore. Possible removal of the people in charge. Dogs and Cats are killed daily, and not even given a chance to be adopted. This is sickening! This needs to stop, these poor animals deserve a chance.

      After further reviews Carson Animal Shelter was found to be actually caring for the Dogs and Cats at a rather high level of sincerity. I have spoke with several people living in the area who vouched for this shelter. They actually network their animals to help save their lives, and work with other organizations in doing the same! I give Carson Animal Shelter all the credit! Aaron Reyes is a great man, giving all of his time to trying to save these animals, as opposed to constant killing. Therefore, they were taken off this petition. This petition was edited to have this petition directed at the Devore Animal Shelter and it's actions.

      It is just wrong, wrong, wrong. Today they killed a sweet momma dog, Nestle - for no good reason. He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.

      All animals, especially domesticated animals, should be treated only with love and compassion.

      Because seeing animals die because of actual evil human beings is horrific, and it should stop. If that shelter were under better management, and actually worked in tandum with volunteers and rescue groups, but they don't want to, that much is obvious. Most of the people they hire at that shelter would appear to ENJOY killing animals.
