Petition text

On the April 2nd, another public execution was orchestrated by the director of the San Bernardino animal shelter, Debi Shuker. Maria Sanchez, a long-time animal advocate, was kicked out from the shelter after trying to pursue Shuker into giving medical attention to a sick dog.

It all started when Sue, a pittie mix, got sick. Sanchez immediately raised the matter among shelter staff. She was given assurance it will all end well. On the other hand, volunteers organized themselves and raise the necessary funds for medication – as the city filed for bankruptcy last year, money was hard to come across. However, Sanchez went back to the shelter only to see that the dog’s state of health got worse. When she demanded an explanation, Shuker called the police and had Sanchez removed for the premises.

The video of the confrontation is available here.

Sanchez has dedicated almost all her life into saving animals and finding them a new home. Her commitment and reputation are beyond any doubt. Dedicated people like Ms Sanchez should be in charge of animal shelters, not some impostors who are simply there for the money!

Sign the Petition to have Maria Sanchez reinstated at the San Bernardino Animal Shelter!
