This petition is to ask that the Clark County Commission and the Las Vegas City Council reverse a new policy co-created by The Animal Foundation and Animal Control. They are requiring that each Rescue Organization participating in the Paw Partner Program provide the name, address, phone number and number of pets of each foster in their rescue program to Animal Control.
The Paw Partner Program Agreement is between the Animal Foundation and the individual Rescue, not with the individual fosters. For that reason, the Animal Foundation and Animal Control have no right to any confidential information that each Rescue has about their individual Foster Program; this is blatant violation of the Paw Partner Program that each Rescue agreed to. The Minimum Requirements only request the approved 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) status, must be actively attempting to find permanent homes and provide a suitable housing arrangement.
The Animal Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to save the lives of all healthy and treatable animals in the Las Vegas Valley. This new policy will increase the needless killings that go on at the Animal Foundation, as fosters may be unwilling to provide this unnecessary personal information, and rightly so, to Animal Control.
We, the undersigned, request that the Clark County Commission and Las Vegas City Council reverse the new policy co-created by the Animal Foundation and Animal Control requiring the submission of personal information on each foster of each rescue participating in its Paw Partner Program. Animal Control has no right to any rescue organization's information on their respective fosters.
The damage that will be done to the foster community by this new requirement will result in the death of more animals. This moves us farther away from the goal of making Las Vegas a No-Kill Community, as well as violating the privacy of individuals who foster for these rescue organizations.
