The Animal Legal Defense Fund and outraged Riverside County residents filed a lawsuit in California Superior Court against the City of Palm Springs, Palm Springs police and animal control officials, and the Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter for an ongoing pattern of abuses and failure to follow state and local laws protecting animals at the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, resulting in the extremely high euthanasia rates of adoptable animals, despite the shelter’s publicizing itself as a “no-kill” facility. In addition to the unnecessary and wrongful killing of scores of dogs and cats impounded annually, the shelter has failed to provide routine veterinary care to Palm Springs’ sick and injured homeless animals.
Sign ALDF's petition to the City of Palm Springs, Palm Springs police and animal control officials, urging them to offer true protection and assistance to the homeless animals they are entrusted with protecting by immediately bringing the Palm Springs Animal Shelter into compliance with all state and local animal protection laws.
