Demand a Change in Maricopa County Animal Care and Control Starting with Dr. Rodrigo Silva

  • by: Debora Garcia
  • target: Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, AZ news stations, Interim Director of the AZ Dept of Agriculture & Associate Director - Environmental Svcs. Div.

Maricopa County Animal Care and Control is one of the worst in the country with a very high kill rate.  This video is just one of many examples of what happens when an organization wants to rescue a sick dog:  Here's another example: .  There are many more reports like this and worse.  Dr. Rodrigo Silva (County Asst. Manager; Director of Maricopa County Animal Care and Control) knows of these deplorable rates of kill, but does nothing.  His superiors and media need to hear from the tax-paying, voting public how sick and tired we are of these deplorable conditions and treatment!

By the Arizona Department of Agriculture’s own rules, the MCACC does not measure up!

Please sign today.  Each signature makes this harder and harder to ignore.

Please tell the public why this cruelty is allowed to continue! Better yet, just STOP THE CRUELTY! This, and so many other cases just like this, are NEEDLESS and CRUEL. The word “care” should not even be a part of its name. Dr. Rodrigo Silva has the power, knowledge, and resources to stop this heinous activity, but he does NOT.

Here is one example (just one) that needs to be dealt with, and there are many of us out here making sure the tax-paying, voting public finds out about these atrocities and crimes against animals. Here is another: .  I was going to email many more links about animal cruelty by this organization, but I realize you already know about this! Your inaction speaks volumes!

Update #13 years ago
Well, I've managed to anger one reporter from a local Phoenix news station. Somehow he took the petition to be an attack on the media, and one Facebook commenter. I'd say that's pretty good so far, actually. We're currently up to 404 signatures... on our way! Thank you for sharing. Please continue to share - especially with those you know who live in Maricopa County. The more "voices," the better! Thank you again for caring and sharing, too.

We are their voices.
