On February 5, I posted a chart of the horror of the Kern County shelters. They are now being sued by rescue individuals with evidence based on shelter statistics vs. anecdotal allegations from the public.

For the complete story and details of the lawsuit see www.shelterwatch.com and its associated blog, www.shelterwatch.blogspot.com.

This could be a landmark case regarding California shelters ignoring and violating the Hayden Act, setting precedent for future suits against a municipal shelter. Currently, there are no penalties or enforcement procedures against violations of the Hayden Act, so it, in effect, does not exist so far as many shelters are concerned.
