On the weekend of August 13th 2011, Pat Claerbout ordered the euthenization of over 200 animals in the Stockton Animal Shelter in order to "clean house". The exact totals are 456 killed from August 12th through 23rd. From August 12th through 31st a shocking total of 684 were KILLED. It continues.For the entire month of August 996 were euthenized.This was her first task as a new director. These numbers are continuing, there is a complete lack of efforts to work with rescues.She has a past history of this type of behavior with Sacramento Animal Services as well. Many of the animals euthenized were highly adoptable and not even given a chance at rescue. Some were pregnant mothers with holds on them for rescue pick up. A couple were dogs whose owners had committed to picking up. None stood a chance. Pat Claerbout has no compassion for animals and should not be a director for the animal shelter. We want her out of there.She has a long history of this type of behavior with Sacramento Animal Services as well. Please sign and help us achieve our goal. Thank you!
As a taxpayer, I am very concerned with the way our animal shelter is currently being run under the care of director Pat Claerbout. She has a long very concerning reputation with Sacramento animal services, a poor reputation with animal rescues and now a poor reputation with the Stockton Animal Shelter. Killing over half the animal population in the shelter without much effort in notification of rescues or owners is very unprofessional, irresponsible and just plain sickening. Please research the past lawsuits against her and consider removing her from her position. We need someone in there with compassion and professionalism.
