Kali, a nine-year-old lost Beagle, was dropped off by her finder at the California Lynwood City Hall on Friday, October 28, 2016 and was posted as a new intake on the City of Lynwood's Animal Control Instagram page. That evening, her family, the Olides, came across Kali’s photo there. Her family messaged them, and on Saturday October 29th, the City of Lynwood's Animal Control Department responded back, “Unfortunately, the animal control officer called in sick today, so we cannot return her until tomorrow. Can we have your telephone number so we can call you to reunite you two on Sunday?”

 On Sunday, October 30th, the Olide’s called Lynwood's Animal Control Department and left a message but received no response back.

 Monday morning, October 31st, Teresa Olide went to Lynwood City Hall to get answers. She was told to leave her contact information and that someone would return her call. No one called. That afternoon, she called Lynwood City's Parking Enforcement Department, left her contact information, and reminded them that Kali is very ill and needed her medication. Once again, no one returned her call.

On November 1st, she sent the City of Lynwood's Animal Control Department a message on Instagram, and asked them what she needed to do to get her dog back. She received a call back and was told that Kali had escaped their facility.

 On November 1, 2016, Teresa went to City Hall and asked to speak to JD Whitaker, Public Safety Manager. JD said he had no information on the situation other than knowing that Kali had been missing since Sunday. He went on to say that due to the Officer being off on Monday and Tuesday, he would have to wait until Wednesday to get more information.

 On November 2nd, Ms Olide met with Mayor Edwin Hernandez and City Manager Arnoldo Beltran.  A police report was filed and an internal investigation is underway, but the Olides still have no answers as to the whereabouts and well-being of Kali.

 Someone at City Hall knows what happened to Kali. We need to know, too, before it is too late, as Kali desperately needs her medication.

Please sign this petition and encourage the City of Lynwood to expedite Kali's return.
