The Moose Jaw Humane Society has done an amazing job of rehoming unwanted and abandoned animals, giving them a second chance and being the voice of a life that cannot speak for themselves. Please support this petition and show the City of Moose Jaw that they are being unfair and need to step up to the plate and seriously consider the work that has been done to date by the Humane Society and reconsider their actions to put an RFP on the table in regards to the City's Pound Keeping Services. This tactic is unfair, unjust and frankly uncalled for.
The City not only has moral obligations but legal obligations they need to adhere to when it comes to pound keeping services. It is not as easy as throwing an animal in a cage for a few days, feed them and euthanize them if no one comes to pick them up, it goes much beyond that and the costs associated go much beyond as well.
The Moose Jaw Humane Society remain the experts here and there is no other organization in the city that would be suited to take on the contract of pound keeping services. To not even consider their suggestions and offers is discouraging and questionable. Why go back to the drawing board when the expertise is already there. Why not enter into a fair contract with an organization you have already trusted to carry out the work before; have peace of mind that the services you, the City, are contracting out will be handled professionally, ethically and with the ragard for life in mind.
