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.

      every animal deserves a chance. Putting a dog to sleep when you know there is a rescue or interest in adopting is simply inhumane. Please stop this cruel practice, network with those who want to help.

      Devore animal shelter lied to me.. I was a owner surrender and they killed my do in 5 day because of barking and being scared due to him being away from his loved ones of course. They told me they would contact me if there was any reason to put my dog down. They lied!!!! I called them and asked them why they didn't contact me that I would of picked him up like they told me. They basically called me a liar and they never do so.. this place need to be shut down.. so many hearts are broken because my innocent dog was killed in 5 days of surrendering him. I basically payed them 90 dollars to kill my dog.
