According to the LAPD website URL, http://www.lapdonline.org/search_results/content_basic_view/36666, the Animal Cruelty Task force takes seized animals to the nearest shelter where they are entered into the S.T.A.R. program for treatment (Euthanol?) and then fostering. The post says you can call Animal Services at (888) 452-7381 to foster one of these animals. Try it. See if we can locate and foster Muffin, Burt or Johnny. I guess mention the cats impounded from Napa Street in Northridge on October 11.
What does the ACTF (Animal Cruelty Task Force) investigate?
The ACTF investigates animal cruelty, neglect, hoarding, mutilation or sacrifice, bestiality, cockfighting, and dog fighting.
What happens to the impounded animals?
Impounded animals are taken to the nearest animal shelters located citywide. At the animal shelters, the impounded animals are entered into the Special Treatment and Recovery (STAR) program where the severely injured, abused, and neglected animals rescued by the ACTF receive medical treatment from experienced veterinarians.
However Mike Bell in a confronation with Boks during a June 6 Town Hall discovered only one dog had been treated in Star.
May I foster or adopt animals that have been impounded by the ACTF?
Yes. The Department of Animal Services has a Foster Program that trains volunteers to provide temporary homes for animals with special needs until they are healthy enough for adoption. Please contact the Department of Animal Services at 888-452-7381 or visit www.lacity.org/ani for more information on the foster or adoption programs.
1000 to 1 you get nowhere. They likely all are dead.
