Gimme Shelter Portland urges you to take the only opportunity you’ll have this year to officially express your dissatisfaction with MCAS and the shockingly low standards set by its 2012 Budget directly to the Chair and Commissioners!
Multnomah County Animal Services has requested $5.3 million, an increase of $44,000 over its 2011 Budget. Included in this total is $3.4 million from County taxpayers with an additional $65,000 from the City of Portland.
Incredibly, there will be no expanded or enhanced programs and services, no plans or projections for improved performance, NO REDUCTION IN KILLING. In fact, written in the budget is a projection to MAINTAIN THE SAME LEVEL OF KILLING AS THE YEAR BEFORE!
DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY TO TELL THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE WASTE OF LIVES AND DOLLARS AT MULTNOMAH COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES TO REPLACE THIS AGENCY!
