Inland Valley Humane Society, our current animal shelter provider, kills hundreds of orphaned, adoptable Chino Hills pets each year. In fact, IVHS killed approximately 74% of the dogs and 86% of the cats that originated in our city in 2012. Our five year contract with IVHS is set to expire very soon. The contract will automatically renew annually allowing time to develop a “No-Kill” strategy. Significant community support exists to study this issue. However, our city manager has communicated his intention to renew for five years, citing “budgetary certainty” as justification for commitment to a long term contract that will surely kill one orphaned pet per day for the next five years. Numerous cities contract with IVHS on an annual basis without negative financial impact. “Budgetary certainty” does not justify indifference to our community’s moral compass.
In an effort to help bring a city-wide "No-Kill alternative" to Chino Hills, we are asking that you help us by signing this petition to send a copy to each of our city council members. Together we can help save the lives of hundreds of pets.
