    Raining cats and dogs

    When is the City going to wake up. I believe the shelter is over 50 years aged, and only has 24 dog runs??? Where are the Animal Service officers supposed to put these defenseless animals?? Stockton has the right idea about micro-chipping all animals then going after the owners when they abandoned them like a piece of trash. Maybe the City should implement a similuar ordinance. Also, when is the last time the City Councel toured the animal shelter??

    The problem is owners who supposedly LOVE their pets refuse to buy the required PET LICENSE. In doing so, the dog or cat cannot be returned to the owner. Pet owners are afraid of fines in most cases for letting their pets roam free to crap in other peoples yards, or because of a dog bite!
