WILL BE PRINTING OUT AND DELIVERING THIS PETITION, OUR SIGNATURES AND COMMENTS IN PERSON TO THE SACRAMENTO BOARD OF SUPERVISORS NEXT WEEK!
Below is Rosemary's story:
she is now home where she belongs and I can not tell you how happy we all are to have our baby Rosemary back!
Now our mission is to ensure that this NEVER happens to anyone else EVER AGAIN! The Shelter and the county of Sacramento must change legislation and policy to prevent this from happening to more people! Over these past few days I have received hundreds of stories from other people involving shelters in the sacramento area and surrounding counties and these stories have broken my hart, shocked me, and strengthened my resolve to make this right and to put a stop to this kind of tragedy! Sign now to demand change to legislation and policy a few suggestions I have would be to:
1.) at least a 6 day hold on lost pets not just 72 hours!
2.) ensure that there is a period of time allowed for owners to claim their companion after the adoption date.
3.) ensure that if the lost pet is still at the shelter the right full owners rights are recognized.
4.) And demand that officer Libby at the Bradshaw Animal Shelter issue a public apology!
My little 3.5 pound Minature pincher chihuahua mix Rosemary got out of my house while I was at work when our bigger family dog pushed open the door. I looked for her day in and day out and could not find her until the 6th. Day when someone on Facebook showed me she was at the Sacramento County Bradshaw Animal Shelter. Now keep in mind that animal shelter is nearly 40 miles away from my home and I NEVER thought that she could or would be there. When I called the woman that runs the shelter told me that she had been adopted out and all she could do is give the adopters my contact information and let them decide what to do.
What she didn't tell me is that my baby was still phisically at the shelter! So the next day I went in as soon as their doors opened to get my baby Rosemary and both employees that were helping me were stopped in their tracts by the woman that ran the shelter. She then approached me very angrily and hostile and the first thing she said to me wasn't hello or anything like that it "I told you, they would call you if they wanted! Why are you here? You can't be here IT isn't yours and I don't Care how you raised it." All while my poor baby could see me through the glass door and was jumping up and down onto the glass to try and get to me, it truly was hart breaking :(
PLEASE HELP AND SIGN THIS PETITION TO DEMAND THAT SITUATIONS LIKE THIS NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN AND TO DEMAND THAT ROSEMARY BE ALLOWED TO COME BACK TO HER RIGHTFUL HOME WHERE SHE IS LOVED AND MISSED BEYOND BELIEF!
PLEASE SIGN, SHARE AND DONATE!
