Whereas the Los Angeles Animal Services (LAAS) Department has submitted a draft Proposal dated June 26, 2020 to turn the West Valley Animal Shelter into a privately run Community Resource Center; andWhereas this draft Proposal would result in significant loss of City services for the people and animals of the West San Fernando Valley; andWhereas it would result in overburdening the only other city animal shelter in the Valley, the East Valley Animal Shelter; andWhereas it would be inequitable because the entire burden of the LAAS budget cut is being visited on one area of the City, the West Valley; andWhereas the draft Proposal is overwhelmingly opposed by the residents of the West Valley and the City; andWhereas there are alternatives to the draft Proposal that would maintain the West Valley Shelter as a fully functioning municipal shelter;

Tax payers would still be paying on Prop F, even if it turns private, which is tax fraud.
