What an honor for San Bernardino County. Congrats to DA Ramos. We expect great things from this association.

"Members of the council are chosen for their leadership in protecting animals from violence, neglect and other types of crimes, according to a news release from the Human Society. Supporting state and federal legislation involving animal laws, promoting animal protection training tips and raising awareness about the HSUS are some of the activities members of the council may undertake."

Ramos is quoted:

“I am honored to have been selected to be a part of the National Law Enforcement Council,” Ramos stated in the release. “I look forward to working with my fellow council members from across the nation to make sure that we are doing all we can to protect our animals from illegal animal cruelty.”

Lots of ticked off people with this information, too bad.

In a court of law, if a witness is paid for his testimony, it is usually not considered credible.

I received a comment under a post about the animal commission.

Witnesses call 323 529 4885
Rewards offered

So how many people will take advantage of this offer and come before the animal commission to lie for that 'reward' money. 

Is this showing ethical behavior? Of course not. In fact it shows that the activists are desperate and will do anything to back themselves. This is despicable behavior for any group. If you haven't already presented your 'evidence', it's because it ain't there. You've had your chance with the Grand Jury, the ABC reporter that was sent without notice, the press. 

This will be reported to the Commission members. They will have it in the back of their minds whenever any of you speak. You have done more to destroy yourselves than this blog could ever do. Give No Killers enough rope and they will hang themselves always. Would it be appropriate for this blogger to thank you at this point?

On the Board Agenda today, the County of San Bernardino Animal Care and Control officially received a $15,000 grant from the California Department of Food and Agriculture to provide additional spay/neuter vouchers for Pit Bull type dogs. The County will be offering 500 additional $30 vouchers which can be coupled with the existing $50 vouchers for a grand total subsidy of $80.

“As pet owners, we have to take responsibility for our animals—that includes spaying or neutering our pets,” said Supervisor Josie Gonzales. “Every year thousands of animals come through the county’s shelter system. If we can reduce that number, we will not only generate savings for taxpayers, we will reduce the number of animals euthanized and help increase pet adoptions.”

The national award winning spay/neuter voucher program still has the $180,000 per year allocated and has not received a cut since the inception in 2001. This grant from the State will add the additional $15,000 for extra Pit Bull vouchers exclusively. Total voucher funds available this year will be $195,000 to serve a human population of approximately 300,000 or .65 cents per capita. The per-capita funding for our spay/neuter voucher program is one of the largest funded spay/neuter voucher programs on a per-capita basis in the region.

By comparison, the City of San Bernardino has a human population of approximately 200,000 and no voucher program. Most larger cities within the county have human populations of between 150,000 and 200,000 people. The vouchers are to serve people and animals in the County's unincorporated areas exclusively.

Now I wonder what kind of hook the Examiner will put on this.

The County of San Bernardino entered into animal shelter agreements with the Town of Apple Valley, Town of Yucca Valley, City of 29 Palms, Barstow Humane, City of Ridgecrest, and Inland Valley Humane. The County is larger than nine (9) states in the U.S. and contracts with shelters in outlining areas of the County to make it easier for pet owners to locate their lost pets.  It is expected that the activists will probably concentrate themselves on these contact shelters rather than on Devore, since they have failed so miserably in their efforts to degrade Devore. 

A recent facebook post shows the same old stories, same old accusations, just a different name. I do have a question, if $315 were already raised, why didn't someone take this dog out? It was more than enough to adopt it. The dog was there 14 days, well beyond the hold time by law. The "rescuers" left the dog there until it was getting sick. Shades of Zephyr in Carson.

And this poster blames "Donna" for the dog being PTS. How does that figure? Where was the rescue after 14 days? Devore held onto this dog well beyond the legal hold time, you would think the rescuer would be grateful for this extra time for her to get it together.

Along with these accusations comes the plea for more donations.

"In his honor, I would like to have anyone that donated (for the one left to be PTS) to put on another dog that we will get out of a shelter (they didn't take the dead one out with $315), in fact a rescue group has said they will take 2 Labs or mixes, in honor of the 4 month Lab from Apple Valley, and now Stanley from Apple Valley."

The shelter is not for private boarding, 14 days is ample time to get a dog out. The rescuer is the one who failed the dogs, not the shelter. Raising money when a pet is still in the shelter seems unethical to me. What do you think?
