I couldn't be happier to hear that poor Otto has been taken to get proper veterinary care, and will soon be loved like he deserves. <3

What can I say beyond the fact that this is shameful? Whether the shelter is publicly or privately funded, clearly the money is being misused.

How can an organization that is supposed to care for animals, treat animals in an inhumane way?? Those responsible, should be charged with animal cruelty. They must be banned for life from owning and working with animals as well.

all these shelters or pounds need closing down and sorting out , they are supposed to save animals not make their lives worse. disgusted , the government should bring a law into force to protect these beautiful creatures from being ill treated , i wish i could do more x good luck Otto xx

Baldwin Park is a County shelter and not part of the LA City Animal Services system so Garcetti is not the right person to complain to. People need to contact the LA County Board of Supervisors to complain.

It is possible I am naive. This dog was healthy a week ago, now he is dying...do they not feed & water the shelter animals at this shelter, and seek veterinary care if they get sick. If an individual treated an animal this way they could, and should be charged under current animal legislation with cruelty to animals, and possibly...make that should, get a long jail sentence....so tell me, how is this shelter getting away with this...who is monitoring the shelters...or is that being left up...

This shelter needs to be investigated ...if there is no organization over them such as the ASPCA, then I think the only other place to go would be the town/city council, who are probably funding the shelter to some degree...perhaps copies of these petitions should be faxed to them, and area media.....just some thoughts...this sort of thing cannot be allowed to continue. There must be something we can do.
