Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson/Council: Build New Kennel, Create Rescue Coordinator Position

Offputting, inaccesible, and in the bowels of Cleveland, the City Kennel desperately FIRST needs a paid Rescue Coordinator position, and SECOND a new kennel in a location that affords livable conditions for visitors/adopters. Our kennel operates on an arbitrary basis, and the mayor and council continually turn a deaf ear to thousands of pleas. Perhaps leaders wrongly assume other pressing matters take precedence, but let's send the message that the way animals are treated is tantamount to how people are treated. Cleveland is a large city, and its animals -- and the people who work at the Kennel -- deserve better. This is an exciting time for animals in Ohio, Right now, a strong and growing corps of animals activists are also seeking to make animal abuse and cruelty a felony in Ohio. Let's start with what many consider Ohio's largest city, CLEVELAND, by bringing it into the 21st century, and improving conditions for animals and workers in our City Kennel!
