MCACC eastside location was almost completely out of food yesterday, with the word being “the dry cat food is gone all gone, and they are now eating the dry dog food.” It is MCACC’s responsibility for each and every life that comes into their door. AZ Statute 11-1021 (A) states: “Any animal impounded in a county, city or town pound shall be given proper and humane care and maintenance.” http://bit.ly/QrUmEM
Waiting until the last moment, when the food bins are empty to near-empty, is unacceptable.
Some volunteers put out pleas about the situation. Could you imagine if these incredible souls turned their cheeks? Shelter animals would go hungry. Even further, who stepped up to the immediate rescue once they knew about this and dropped off food? The “irresponsible public.”
There is NO excuse that can spin this. Where does this unacceptable, failing practice stem from at MCACC? Shelter leadership.
Make it abundantly clear, Maricopa County, MCACC leadership refuses to rigorously implement lifesaving strategies. It is on us, folks, WE are their voice.
Join us on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at Paradise Valley Community Center for the next We the People meeting to learn how your voice can help.
