Update: 9/4/18: 2 dogs have been found DEAD in their kennels in a 4 day span! Dogs are dying at Carson - in their kennels - on cold cement floors!________

Update 9/2/18: I am reopening this petition to bring awareness to the fact that 5 dogs were killed this past week for being labeled “aggressive”. One dog had already been there for 2 months before being killed. These are not peaceful deaths for these dogs. They don’t get the nice sedative, the arms surrounding them and soft whisperings of love and goodbyes.  THEY ARE P.T.D. (PUT TO,DEATH). Not sleep. Death. —————————————————————-

UPDATE: Any dog who is in an LA COUNTY SHELTER for 60 days or more may be PTS with no advance warning! *************************************************

This was sent to the people who network to save RESCUE ONLY DOGS: This is from the former Deputy Direct of the Southern, CA Shelters: Carson, Downey, Baldwin, Lancaster and Agoura Hills.  

I wanted to take the time to inform you that effective immediately there will be some changes in the animals in which you have been notified. All animals deemed "not safe" for placement due to behavior will no longer be made available to rescue's. You will no longer receive notifications on these animals and animals that fall under this category will be euthanized after there holding period is up. You will continue to receive notification on animals that are behaviorally sound and available. If you have any question please contact Allison Cardona the new Deputy Direct for the South County Operations. I will still be available but I encourage you to reach out to Allison for all your concerns, and let her know this is NOT OK!!! 

We are asking that the recent Policy Changes implemented by Allison Cardona be revoked and that rescues be allowed the opportunity to once again give every dog a second chance by making them available to rescues!  Furthermore, we are requesting that Temp Tests be given on INTAKE and that they are administered by a TRAINED BEHAVIORIST, not a shelter employee! 

Young, healthy dogs are being labeled NOT SAFE by a SHELTER employee. They use a FAKE RUBBER hand which is very human aggressive to a dog. Months go by without exercise, no toys, they develop open sores on their feet and legs, they become depressed and listless, they have no grass to roll in, no human contact, no love, no decent food, no baths, or even the simple act of being petted. They test them AFTER MONTHS in a kennel and almost ALL will fail. 

LA County is breaking the law. What they are doing is a direct violation of Hayden's Law!

HAYDEN'S LAW:  SEC. 12. Section 31108 of the Food and Agricultural Code is amended to read: 

31108. (a) The required holding period for a stray dog impounded
pursuant to this division shall be six business days, not including
the day of impoundment, except as follows:

(1) If the pound or shelter has made the dog available for owner redemption on one weekday evening until at least 7:00 p.m. or one weekend day, the holding period shall be four business days, not including the day of impoundment. 

(2) If the pound or shelter has fewer than three full-time employees or is not open during all regular weekday business hours, and if it has established a procedure to enable owners to reclaim their dogs by appointment at a mutually agreeable time when the pound or shelter would otherwise be closed, the holding period shall be four business days, not including the day of impoundment. Except as provided in Section 17006, stray dogs shall be held for owner redemption during the first three days of the holding period,
not including the day of impoundment, and shall be available for owner redemption or adoption for the remainder of the holding period.

(b) Any stray dog that is impounded pursuant to this division
shall, prior to the killing of that animal for any reason other than
irremediable suffering, be released to a nonprofit, as defined in
Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, animal rescue or
adoption organization if requested by the organization prior to the scheduled killing of that animal.

In addition to any required spay or neuter deposit, the pound or shelter, at its discretion, may assess a fee, not to exceed the standard adoption fee, for animals released.

LA County is breaking the law. What they are doing is a direct violation of Hayden's Law!
