SOS Today!!!! Los Angeles area -
Heeeeyo Tumblr sharers and non-tumblr sharers!!!
GET US OUT OF HERE - WE ONLY HAVE TILL TOMORROW!!!
I am sure I’ve mentioned what a nightmare San Bernardino Animal Shelter is and how they will kill an animal on the day it is finally available for adoption. And when I say they will kill ‘A’ animal, what I mean is they will kill 21 all at once.
San Bernardino gets paid $100 per kill they make by the county. According to their previous shelter director, Ken Childress - the shelter takes in an average of/ and holds 250-275 animals.
This is a new fresh batch up for rescue/foster/adoption in San Bernardino, California. For those curious tender hearts across our nation and awakening No Kill lovers, this shelter is near Palm Springs, Riverside, Fontana, Covina, and is pretty damned close, overall in respects of rescue - to Los Angeles.
For all of us who are disgusted with the constant incomings into high kill shelters know there’s been great success in places who ban animal mills, who regulate breeders, who ban pet stores selling live animals, who embrace Trap/Neuter/Release protocols, and who take a very good look at the new model for "No Kill Shelters."
For the doubters take a look at the headline below. It’s not the first city, by any means, to begin making this great trend a reality either…
The answer to high kill shelters is in our hands. The answer is in being a tough mamajama. It’s in making sure smug city leaders like San Bernardino’s animal murdering Mayor Cary Davis be shown the door, taking the trash out with him. (Please read the article I linked his name to)
The answer to saving lives is achievable. It’s easy! Start by caring about lives and then act on it.
If our community leaders don’t want to lead then let them know you don’t mind dragging them behind.
There are 13 cats and kittens due out today at the killing machine that is San Bernardino City Shelter.
All other cats that were due out yesterday, or overdue (no more than 1-2 days) were murdered in yesterday’s blood bath- 21 of them.
We are heartsick, and tired.
We are out of foster space, and cannot pull anymore, and no new fosters have signed up.
Pledging on the cats has dwindled to almost nothing, so other rescues that might have foster space are not willing to take them without some financial backing- cats from SBC are notorious for coming out of the killing machine with severe illness. Most recover, but the vet expenses can be crippling. Let’s face it, if every cat on this page had $1000 in pledges we’d have rescues lined up to take them.
We cannot carry on our shelter-neuter-release program without sponsorships for spay/neuter of the cats.
Adopt, foster, pledge, or share. These are the 4 things that save cats.
We hope someone makes it out of SBC alive.
