To Whom It May Concern:


In light of the recent euthanization of the dog we are calling Monday and all prior animals euthanized via Aberdeen Animal Control's facility under Grays Harbor County Sheriff ACO's direction, along with AAC's, we are asking for your consideration in implementing several changes that will help prevent animals finding themselves in similar predicaments from being killed in the future. 
1) We request that a photo be taken of all animals upon entering Aberdeen Animal Control via AAC or Grays Harbor County ACO, to be uploaded to a publicly viewable website with kennel number and date of intake such as PetHarbor.com-a free website designed to be used by shelters such as AAC's.
2) Relationships with reputable 501c3's and shelters outside of Grays Harbor County be established for transfer of animals once holding period is up to ensure animals have multiple options other than in-city rescues which are frequently full. 
3) A moratorium placed on deeming dogs "dangerous" and/or "potentially dangerous" until assessment training for ACO's is in place, along with a neutral, qualified third party certified by the CCPDT participating in assessments on dogs initially deemed "dangerous" or "potentially dangerous" until such training is in place and implemented. Shelters/Rescues transferring dogs in can and should assume responsibility for doing their own assessments. 
We realize while you are not legally bound to implement these changes, it will foster trust and faith in the community along with saving countless lives. 
Washington State, particularly the Pacific Northwest, is known for being a wonderful place for our pets. Putting these practices in place will ensure that it continues to be so. 
Thank you for your consideration,
