BCAC - Broward County Animal Care

We the undersigned demand that BCAC - Broward County Animal Care give a full public written apology and reinstate Animal Care Officer- Dafna Hadad to her position of field position with the adoption center.

It has come to our attention that in April, Dafna Hadad, was moved out of a field position with the adoption center, which allowed her to roam the streets looking for animal cruelty, and into an area called "the kennels".

There, part of her new responsibility was to euthanize animals -- even the healthy ones.

Dafna suffers with anxiety and depression and this made it difficult for her to kill healthy animals.

According to an internal memo obtained by New Times, that was a problem for the county animal center who in Hadad's discharge letter, told her she had 45 days to "seek reassignment" within the county apparatus, and when she didn't, they fired her..

Broward County Animal Care which claims to be going - no kill, has let go an officer for not being able to kill, and that is a disgrace.

Please do the right thing and reinstate Dafna to her Field position with the Adoption center immediately.

Sincerely... 



Signed,

Orange for Animal Cruelty Awareness

Dafna was an officer at Broward Animal Care.

She was let go for not being able to kill dogs and cats that are not terminally ill. 

For years she has been a top officer, on the streets, recognizing and preventing animal cruelty, and helping dog owners, and helping the rescue community.

She was recently transferred to "kennels" where her job is cleaning and her experience is wasted.

More importantly, her new position required euthanizing , or killing, healthy animals. 

Due to her depression & anxiety, Dafna cannot kill.

As a result, she was separated from Her employment with animal care when the easy solution was to put her back in the field where she belongs where only the euthanasia of suffering animals is necessary as a last resort.

There is not a person involved in rescue , that has not been helped by Dafna.
