Happy Holidays to all our cat loving friends . . .
2016 has been a very tough year here at Save-a-LIfe, and if any of you have been following, you know we’ve been having some trouble with an unethical officer at Kern County Animal Control (KCAC). We feel KCAC has violated animal rights, citizen rights, and state ordinances. We have challenged their behavior, protested their activities, and filed a lawsuit against them, and they have retaliated by charging me with animal cruelty. Both cases are pending, and our attorneys are currently working towards a settlement.
WE HAVE SETTLED OUR LEGAL ISSUES!
ALL CHARGES HAVE BEEN DISMISSED! . . .
We are not totally happy though, as we had to make consessions, mainly giving up our right to sue Kern County Animal Control for damages. However, given our lack of funds for further legal action, we have been forced to accept the settlement as is. At least all charges have been dropped, not that the charges had any merit anyway. Animal Control needs to be stopped! They still have some of our cats in their Bakersfield Jail, and they still haven't felt any punishment or consequences to their illegal and unethical behavior.
Kern County Animal Control are the ones that should be charged with animal cruelty. Especially Officer Daniel Burgess, the lying coniving wannabe cop that perpetrated this whole nightmare. He is a threat to all animal rescues in Kern County, and an even bigger threat to animals. Practically singlehandedly, he has established Kern County Animal Control as the worst abuser of animals in the entire state. What does it take to have this asshole removed? Is there any oversight to this run-amuck agency? What the hell is going on in Kern County? Officer Burgess just wasted upwards of $50,000 to $100,000 of tax payers money pursuing his vendetta against Save-a-Life and trying to puff up his ego so he can continue killing animals in the name of helping them.
IN OTHER NEWS . . .
. . . we’ve been working round the clock insulating and warming the outdoor kennels, making sure our lovable cats have a warm place to go when the temperatures drop below freezing. We’re also giving them more wet food so they can get nice and fat before winter sets in.
Unfortunately, all this extra food and costs are mounting and we really really need a helping hand to make ends meet. We also need help tending to these beautiful creatures, cleaning, petting, taking them to adoption events, and working the internet to find homes for them and to raise money and awareness.
