I would stand by this lady any given day! I pray she gets her original job back or is lead to another facility for animals that is not a high kill shelter. Fired because she has a big heart? That's outrageous!

There will be a March Against Cruelty to Animals in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, November 16th at noon at Huizenga Plaza. It will be the first one in Florida but the organizers plan to take this March to other states and subsequently other countries. Please share. We need to petition the Broward County Commissioners to restore Dafna Hadad's job.

too bad she is not in charge of the entire state Animal Services Department. She IS what they need: Humane souls with a real caring heart. The cruel monsters we have right now are exactly what is wrong with our society and should never be working near a poor, defenseless animal. GOD Bless you Dafna and I hope we hear more great things about your bravery & compassion in the near future, I hope you never give up your true calling working to protect our innocent & voiceless

Blessings to you, Dafna! Thank you so much for listening to and following your heart, and for your willingness to speak for those wonderful creatures who can't speak for themselves.

She should set up a new no kill policy animal shelter with other like minded people.

I could never kill an animal, if more people were like her the world would be a better place to live.

I lived in Boca Raton for 3 year a few years ago and am very familiar with Broward County Animal Care and Control. I can tell you with no hesitation that Broward County Animal Care & Control is a HIGH KILL facility. They kill MANY MANY animals. Volunteers are told not to ask about animals that are "gone" from the previous day. It is sad and disgusting and frankly, it should be stopped.

I lived in Boca Raton for 3 year a few years ago and am very familiar with Broward County Animal Care and Control. I can tell you with no hesitation that Broward County Animal Care & Control is a HIGH KILL facility. They kill MANY MANY animals. Volunteers are told not to ask about animals that are "gone" from the previous day. It is sad and disgusting and frankly, it should be stopped. Florida has a huge animal overpopulation problem for many reasons (tons of backyard breeders, lots of housing foreclosures leading to animal dumping, various cultural beliefs that animals are disposable, etc.) That being said, there are facilities and rescue groups that are "No Kill" -- I volunteered at a few of such facilities during my time in Florida. The number of dogs of all kinds (pure breeds and otherwise) that are left in utter neglect is alarming. In South Florida alone, thousands of dogs are put down each DAY. Awareness is the key. Don't buy a dog, ever.

How can an animal CARE officer be forced to kill a healthy animal? And these are called animal SHELTERS? More like an extermination camp!
