We sent a letter to Mr. Jasthi at Nerd Wallet explaining that Long Beach is a great place for dog guardians -- unless they lose their dog. At that point, a 29-50% kill rate for dogs is a serious problem for the well-being of Long Beach's dog guardians and their animals. We would argue that it's a serious problem for all of Long Beach. You can read our letter to Nerd Wallet here and Mr. Jasthi's article here.
Once again, we are compelled to say: Please don't forget the shelter dogs, cats and other animals. Tell Long Beach City Council you want a comprehensive adoption program, foster program and the programs of the No Kill Equation in the Long Beach city shelter.
