72 hours?! We need to have more options for these animals! We need to stand up for them because they cannot stand up for themselves. We need more laws that restrict breeding, laws against abandoning an animal (for any reason!!), laws against cruelty and neglect. We need to get these animals out of the shelters with more laws that make people face consequences for mistreating an animal. They are NOT property. They are beings... you can look away afrom that fact if you choose, but its still true. They deserve better and the only way that's going to happen is if we fight for them. And giving any shelter any type of reimbursement for 72 hours or less... is disgusting, irresponsible and heartless.

It's called common decency. How shameful that Gov. Brown isn't even showing the same decency as his predecessor did. For the love of everything holy and life-affirming, bring back Gov. Brown who had a brain AND a heart and spirit.
