Kudos to Patterson Joint Unified School District designating the schools "safe zones". Full involvement in the schools and education process by parents and students can't happen when there is distrust and fear of the system.
Westside Animals for Adoption wants to let the public know that we are also a "safe zone" to encourage owners to reconnect with lost pets when they have been brought to us. Most of our loose, seeming stray, dogs are actually owned and wanted by their families. Let's not put up barriers to reuniting them.
I hope all our public shelters adopt this policy so we can move forward with the strategy of helping keep pets at home, or as some put it, "surrender prevention".
