Because this pound is also known as HELL! They get animals from the other San Bernardino county shelters PLUS ones they pick up or are dumped on them. By law, their max. hold time has been reduced to 3 days....used to be a week...thank you California politicians! Rescues are pretty much working with one hand tied behind their back...and the pound is KNOWN for killing even when a rescue is enroute....it is just the "way they do business." County residents either don't know or don't care.

Marianne I live in Ohio, so cannot be of much direct help, but are the county commissioners the ones in charge of the pound or is it the city council members? The local people need to find who is in charge and then co-ordinate a group to be at all the meetings-usually you have to arrive early and sign-up to speak. Though it can be difficult, it is always wise to remain polite and then arm yourselves with the facts. Invite the media to attend the meetings and start getting coverage in the...

Invite the media to attend the meetings and start getting coverage in the newspapers and television. Everyone can easily write letters-to-the-editors and when they see several wriiten at the sametime, the letters will get published all on the same day. Always keep polite and stick to facts-this is about making positive change for the animals, it is not about venting anger.

Marianne Schultz the "people" that made that decision should sh-t and then drop dead in it. i refrain to think of them as human! they are garbage.

I use to go in and pull cats and dogs from this shelter through a rescue that I use to work with. The person in charge of the rescue did me real wrong, and said alot of things about me that werent true. I gave my heart and soul to saving the animals at Devore and transporting them to safety. It saddens me that this has happened to this poor puppy, and it saddens me that the rescue I devoted my time and money too cares as much as the shelter itself! Too many politics and monies being stolen...

Too many politics and monies being stolen between the 2. This could of been preventable, poor puppy RIP

This shelter needs to be watched and revamped. They kill all their dogs. And no networking as I see and in an area where no one is.

This did not have to happen. Devore is the one that needs to be put down.

A rescue group had stepped up to foster the German Shepherd puppy, but the pound killed the dog anyhow-why? This insanity and cruelty needs to change immediately! Write them a polite email and ask for new policies to be implemented at: http://www.sbcounty.gov/acc/programs/shelter_services/shelter_services_hours.htm.
