The dog was admitted to the Devore Animal Shelter from the City of Rialto on July 26, 2012. The dog was available for adoption or rescue on July 31, 2012. A rescue organization requested that a hold be placed on the dog until the close of business on August 3, 2012, and the rescuer stated they would receive the dog on the 3rd. Since the rescuer failed to pick-up the dog, and the dog developed signs of illness, the dog was euthanized on the following day August 4th due to lack of space at the shelter and the fact the dog had become ill and the rescuer failed to claim the dog they had requested.
Devore attempted to work with this "rescuer" by extending the mandatory hold period.
Once again, the "rescuer" was using Devore for a private boarding kennel. And to top it all off, the "rescuer" was there filming the video probably. And when was told it was going to the euthanasia room, why didn't this person doing the video stand up and take the dog? Because the purpose of all of this is not to save animals, it is to condemn Devore.
Shades of Zephyr in Carson. That was a case of a dog being placed on hold for almost a month. All the while this dog was on hold, other dogs had to die to hold that space. The night that Zephyr died, the "rescuer" that had the hold was there, she took a picture of a very sick dog. Yet she left Zephyr, walked away. When questioned by a reporter as to why she didn't take Zephyr when she made the picture, she responded that her vet was already closed. Duh, there are emergency clinics on every corner in LA. This case is no different.
