Voice what citizens want in a Director at Dallas Animal Services

This petition had 671 supporters

Citizens of Dallas should have an opinion to who will be hired to be the Director of Dallas Animal Services.  The job has been posted and candidates have been streamlines WITHOUT any input from the community, animal welfare organizations or other leaders for assisting in the necessary change for animals in our city.

We only have 48 hours to collect 1000 signature of Dallas Texas residence.  Please share the petition so I can present it to our City Manager and City Council for consideration before a Director is hired.

What do we want???

Established collaborative relationships with national animal welfare groups who can support the shelter financially and with consulting expertise.

Successful Grant writing experience

Cooperation and networking with animal control directors in other cities.

A welcoming attitude toward all those who want to help the shelter.

A ‘second in command’ they plan to bring in who can support leadership

Staff development expertise

Transparency (budget and shelter operations)

Well versed in animal care and animal welfare trends.

Creative program approaches/innovations to life-saving

Proven ability to enforce animal codes

Ability to build positive relationships with all animal welfare groups in the city not just those working with the shelter. (Community Animal Care approach)

Relationships at County and State level to facilitate comprehensive animal care laws and collaboratives to support Dallas dogs.
