HUMAN RIGHTS vs. ANIMAL RIGHTS
If there's no dog park in your city, here is good news from the CA Federation Of Dog Clubs
Model Dog Park
August 15, 2015 saw the grand opening of Whittier's new dog park, a project that has been over 10 years in the making. The event was standing-room-only, attended by the entire City Council and Mayor Fernando Dutra did the honors of hosting the ceremonies.
The park is truly a beautiful facility, very dog-friendly and drought-tolerant with plenty of shade, which was totally occupied that day.
Also in attendance were representatives from L. A. County Supervisor Don Knabe (4th District), whose office contributed $125,000.00 dollars to the project, and state Assemblyman Ian Calderon, who presented the City Council with a commendation commemorating the event. The committee members who worked to establish the park were also honored.
Mayor Dutra said that all our presentations were in stark contrast to the county Dept. of Animal Care and Control staffers' lack of information and precision which preceded us. Each council member echoed his comments and said that they wished all public-interest groups could make their decisions as easy for them as we did on MSN.
We have real dog friends in Whittier, as well as a gorgeous park for the city's canines to frolic in. Edited bulletin by Connie Koehler, Connemar Wheatens, received from Chuck Bridges, President, California Federation of Dog Clubs.
Please go to their website www.cfodconline.org and do what you can to help them fight for your ownership rights. And you might also want to drop a note to the people who hold it together for you, no matter where you live.
www.TheDogPress.com has followed CFODC for many years. They do more than talk about fighting "animal rights" legislation; they show up at hearings! The Californian Federation Of Dog Clubs walk the halls in the capitol building.
