As a professional courtesy, I am writing first to confirm a report that HSUS has ranked Multnomah County Animal Services second out of ten nationally as a “model” agency.
Is that correct? If so what attributes did you value?
If the report is correct, as I send out the letter below, and write other essays, I will make sure to note that HSUS approves of and endorses MCAS’s behaviors, considers them worthy of emulation: temperament testing abuses; agency refusals of publicly paid humane care for injured animals, covert breed bans, racial profiling in enforcement ( preliminary pilot research); falsifying statistics and other “model” animal control behaviors.
I am sure that an organization of your reputation and size has thoroughly researched every aspect of MCAS conduct, behavior, and policies. before your approve. What is your data base if indeed the above ranking report is true?
I am looking forward to your response.
