Close Lawton Animal Shelter

Do to long term abuse and neglect of animals in the care of the Lawton Animal Control, we petition that the shelter be closed. The animals in their care have little bedding, and are shown little care. Emmie, a weimeriner, was picked up by Animal Control Wednesday, March 19, 2008, after being struck by a car. She later died of blood loss after they left her in a cage, bleeding out, without calling the owner or seeking medical attention. This is just one of many complaints and one of many reasons why the shelter should be closed. Animal cruelty should not need to occur when they are in the car of Animal Control.

I know this sounds manipulative, but ball your eyes out when you leave a message or if you get to talk to someone, they act quicker. Talk to your attorney first, make sure he thinks it's a good idea. And don't just sue for damages, make them change the policies and procedures for situations like that. DON'T LET IT HAPPEN AGAIN!!!!! Good Luck and you will never know how sorry I am for your loss, I wouldn't wish something like this on anyone. Sincerely, Andi OH, and if possible contact every rescue you know, put post on every board, even contact petfinder and picket City Hall. If you neede help let me know, I'd be more than happy too.
