We are demanding that Downey Care Animal Shelter to stop senseless killing of animals who have committed rescues. Also, we are requesting the resignation of Marcia Mayeda , Javier Gutierrez and Melissa McCormic, the 3 who signed his death sentence
We tried to save Pirate but the shelter would not release him -They euthanized him instead On 6-17-20.
So fed up of this system that does not help the dogs that need most help.Face full of tears...Pirate... 💔
We are demanding the following changes be made he Downey Care Animal Shelter
1. The shelter to follow Haydens law b) makes explicit that shelters, including public shelters, are "depositaries of living animals" (Civil Code secs. 1815, 1816) responsible for treating those animals "kindly" (Civil Code sec. 1834);
g) requires shelters to release animals to Internal Revenue Code sec. 501(c)(3) animal rescue and adoption groups that have requested an animal prior to his/her euthanasia (Food and Agricultural Code secs. 31108, 31752, 31752.5, 31753, 31754)
Many have been working tirelessly to save this boy, Pirate, who has captured our hearts.
I just want to provide an update on Pirate since so many are concerned and have been asking about Pirate's status.
Pirate is currently at the Downey ACC and was under a 10 day bite hold, which is up.
A determination on whether he is "safe" or "unsafe" for placement has been rendered by the behaviour team.
(If the behaviour team assesses him as safe for placement, then only a partnered LA Rescue can pull him from the shelter). the behaviour team.
(If the behaviour team assesses him as safe for placement, then only a partnered LA Rescue can pull him from the shelter).
Here, the behaviour team has assessed Pirate as unsafe for placement. However, his euthanasia today has been delayed till tomorrow by the manager to review Pirate's case.
Nonetheless, the behaviour team's lead will have the final stamp tomorrow on Pirate's fate.
Like many of us, waiting for this final decision from this behaviour team's lead has been a hard and stressful one, because we are advocates for the voiceless and We want Pirate to be given a chance.
