A former worker came forward with important
accusations surrounding the San Bernradino City animal shelter, California.
According to her statement, dogs were routinely hung
by leashes and were given just a third of dosage of the drugs needed for
euthanization, thus animals suffered a lingering death. Moreover, animals were
beaten most of the time. Others were labeled as sick as an excuse to be killed –
they were actually healthy and fit for adoption. Most of the staff members
involved in these atrocities still work there.
Moreover, animals were oftenly deemed as dangerous by
the animal shelter, although they were not considered so by their former
owners. This was just another excuse to euthanize them. In addition, the
shelter recurred to killings even before the animals were available for
adoption – all in all, animals were given no chance for survival.
Another concern pointed out by animal advocates
referred to the lack of cleanliness in the shelter. The place was and continues
to be filled with germs, and animals are exposed to various kinds of disease
once they get there. Vaccinating animals as soon as they are brought in is a
mandatory condition in every civilized animal shelter in the US – not in San
Two of the most outspoken activists have been
threatened with arrest. They were searched and cited for feeding the animals at
the San Bernadino shelter – ridiculous accusations, used for the sole purpose
