Re: “Group Calls for Oakland Animal Services to Lower Euthanasia Rate, But Administrators and Allies Say Shelter is Best it’s Been in Years

As a former volunteer whose plans to return have been dashed due to current mismanagement, I am heartbroken. Director Katz showed great promise upon her arrival at OAS which makes its present irresponsible conduct that much harder to swallow. I don't doubt that cats and smaller dogs are being rescued at a quick pace, but big dogs, esp. pit bulls, do not seem to be given a fair shot. Expert behaviorists and evaluators should be a core element in a shelter--they literally make life or death decisions. A robust foster program and support for foster parents is also a key element that is missing. I am disappointed, disgusted and heartbroken and hope Katz will quickly shake off her shocking negligence of Oakland's homeless dogs and engage in constructive dialogue with her critics.
