Stop killing and start saving dogs and cats in Stockton, CA.

ID#A178150 never had a name. She came into the Stockton, CA pound injured or sick on December 19, 2011 and she was dead by close of business December 23. She probably never received veterinary care. Director Pat Claerbout says she refuses to keep animals in "inhumane conditions," but she does nothing to save them. Pat Claerbout's tenure at Sacramento County Animal Services was notable for high kill rates and complaints about poor conditions. Stockton is now experiencing the same. Dozens of other communities save the vast majority of animals with the No Kill Equation, and Stockton and San Joaquin County could, too. It starts with the leadership of the City Council and County Board of Supervisors and with hiring a compassionate and competent director. Replace Pat Claerbout with a director who is willing and able to marshal the resources available in the community and region to save animals like the poor dog known only as A178150.

      Do we kill foster children? NO! Animals are a living creature and deserve the right to live life as do humans.

      Our furry friends don't have a choice or a voice that WE do! They shouldn't be killed due to a policy or money woes. Especially for ending up there. Or by not treat them the way they SHOULD be treated in the first place! It's inhumane for an animal to go through what it does by abuse or neglect, to then be abused and killed by someone who HAS the voice and opportunity to HELP and get them a good and loving home but chooses not too!

      The situation at the Stockton Animal "Shelter" has to be brought into the light. The way we treat animals is a measure of our humanity. To ignore what is going on there is shameful...for all of us.

      Dogs don't ask to be brought in this world! It's the greedy breeders who should be put down.
