Rebekah Rau started this petition to Fairbanks Borough Assembly

Under current law, the Fairbanks animal control can only respond to complaints that involve food, water, and shelter for an animal.  This means, as long as a shelter or person provides those three things, there is nothing else that animal control can do.

Right now, we have animals being abused, neglected, and in serious unsanitary conditions in our borough - some of these crimes are being committed by "rescues" in the area who claim to help animals.  These "no-kill" rescues are actually causing more animal deaths per year than animal control, simply by not providing sanitary conditions.

Fairbanks Borough needs more stringent and specific laws for the health and safety of the animals in our borough, particularly for the organizations that claim to be a rescue or shelter.  We aren't asking for much - just basic minimum health, safety, and care laws, (similar to laws in other counties and boroughs) so that we can help stop the needless suffering of some of these animals.
