Torie Rios started this petition to City of Littlefield Texas

I’m starting this petition to bring a much needed change to the way animals in our community are euthanized with zero effort from the City of Littlefield and our ACO towards the animals being rescued or adopted. 

The reality in a small community is that , without community support, it’s near impossible to have a no kill animal shelter. In order to have community involvement, the City of Littlefield has to be willing to make changes and stick to them.

I’ve personally been involved in trying to see changes made and was allowed to go in and take pictures of dogs that were impounded on Saturday and by Tuesday morning, they had all been euthanized, without even a follow up on suitable homes or rescues for them. This was not due to lack of space as there were still 7-8 open cages available. They were Euthanized because the ACO stated that he had to get stuff done at the shelter. 

Two of those dogs were picked up from an owner and should have been held in order for the owners to have a chance to either get them returned or have them legally seized. They were Euthanized before that could happen and the owners are not even aware of it. 

While the process may be long in changing the shelter to completely no kill, my hope is that a petition to do so will force the City of Littlefield to step up and make changes that will start getting it to no kill status. This would force them to vaccinate on intake and also provide spay/neuter,  through the help of some amazing resources available to help them. 

Thank you for taking the time to sign this petition and SHARE it so that we can get the City of Littlefield to do the right thing!
