Help us reform this facility! Please sign this petition and stand up for the voiceless, victims of incompetence and indifference.
Coweta County Animal Control Facility in Newnan, Georgia, has a high-kill rate, provides inadequate care and repeatedly destroys animals with adoption applications in place. They routinely destroy kittens and puppies at 6 weeks of age.
Bobo- Received numerous adoption enquiries from the public. The center was repeatedly contacted to advise that a foster carer would arrive in 15 minutes to adopt Bobo. The center refused to wait and destroyed him
Jojo (Ol’ Yeller)- A well documented case where Jojo arrived with 4 broken legs, the subject of abuse. Jojo was unable to reach food and water provided and was left alone without care or nourishment for four days. By the time carers arrived, he was beyond help.
Butterscotch/ Peppermint/ Nameless Kittens: All destroyed while under application for adoption or denied adequate veterinary care directly resulting in their deaths.
Att: Governor of Georgia, Mr Nathan Deal/ Attorney-General of Georgia, Mr Sam Olens, Coweta County Mayor, Mr Keith Brady
We the undersigned, hereby present you with the following petition. That a thorough investigation into Coweta County Animal Control Facilty, located in Newnan, Georgia, be urgently undertaken. That administrative control of this facility be supplanted from the Coweta County Prison and delegated to an appropriate authority. We forward this petition, under the jurisprudence of the Constitution of the United States, in order to preserve and defend our democratic rights.
The petition hereby alleges that Coweta County Animal Control has failed in it’s duty of care, as required under the Georgia Animal Protection Act 4-11-2, by the following:
1. Failure to provide adequate and immediate veterinary care, as required by law
2. Failure to adequately monitor the health of and provide necessary care for animals, as required by law
3. Failure to provide competent administration to oversee it’s mandated function
4. Destroying healthy animals that have adoption applications in place
5. Failure to adequately advertise and attempt to re-home adoptable pets, as per it’s mandate
6. Destroying healthy and adoptable pets, without adequately attempting to re-home them
We note with alarm that previous attempts to highlight the inadequacies of this facility, by various animal welfare groups, have fallen upon deaf ears. We hereby plan to almagate all efforts from those groups and provide a media spotlight to this situation. We stress our unwavering determination to succeed and finally provide an adequate duty of care at the Coweta County Animal Control Faciltiy, in Newnan, Georgia.
