Reduce the Adoption Price For Animals Close to Euthanization Dates:
Far too many adoptable animals are being euthanized at OCAS (and shelters across the nation). I think that if we brought more attention to the severity of how little time they have, and offer incentives to adopt those who are mere days from being euthanized, it would increase the adoption rate and save lives.
This petition is to bring awareness to OCAS that we, the people, request more effort to be made to save these innocent lives.
This petition is to request that adoptable animals with 3 days left (before their ORIGINAL 'due out' / review for euthanization date), shall be discounted by a minimum of 50% off of the standard adoption fees. (Standard fees at OCAS: $55 for dogs / $40 for cats).
At 3 days until the ORIGINAL "due out" (review for euthanization) date, the adoptable animal should reduce in price to: DOG - $25  | Cat - $20
*During times of promotions, these animals should also receive a discount, to ensure they remain below the current adoption fee (at an adoption price of $25 or lower, depending upon current discounted promotional efforts offered at the time)
Awareness of the discount should be made visible or aware to the public (stickers, signs on the cage, etc.--there should be some form of notice to offer incentive to save the animals life, since there is very limited time left).
I strongly feel that implementing this action will increase the number of lives saved each year.
Too Cute To Be Equipment, Too Brave To Go Down Without A Fight!
Follow the bill on Facebook at:…
Currently Military Working Dogs (MWDs) are still referred to as equipment. When the military doesn’t need them any more they are considered excess equipment and the military no longer has responsibility for them. They are usually retired for medical reasons. Medical bills for our retired MWDs can be astronomically high.
During the 112th Congress, North Carolina Congressman Walter Jones (R) introduced the House version of The Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act on 28 February 2012 and Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal (D) introduced the Senate version of The Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act on 27 February 2012.
This bill had bi-partisan support, bicameral support and support north & south of the Mason/Dixon Line. The Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act uses no tax-payer money. It does not take away from human Veterans' care.
Parts of the Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act were amended into and passed in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013.
Six United States Senators sent a letter to Leon Panetta, Secretary of Defense urging him to take advantage of the statutory authority they gave him to transport Military Working Dogs to a suitable location for adoption. They encourage him to implement the statutory change allowing him to provide guidance to improve the quality and lower the costs of veterinary care in a manner that allows for nonprofit organizations to execute this provision. They suggest that he provide a letter of commendation to each MWD that identifies the MWD's meritorious service and provide additional recognition as appropriate. All as allowed thanks to the amendment to the NDAA. While not in the NDAA they encourage Secretary Panetta to reexamine the current classification of MWDs as equipment and reclassify them as canine members of the Armed Forces.
Michael B. Donley, Secretary of the Air Force replied to the Senators’ letter. Regarding transportation he indicates that many adopters pay transportation costs. He acknowledges the veterinary care portion. He indicated that he provides letters of commendation to retiring MWDs as warranted. He indicated that MWDs are not referred to or treated as equipment, but did not offer to change the Air Force Manual to reflect that.
On 3 October 2013 we received a copy of a Bullet Background Paper on Military Working Dogs Classified as Equipment. PURPOSE:  “Provide information on AF Classification of military working dogs (MWD) as equipment. SUMMARY:  “Wording contained in AFMAN 31-219 referring to MWDs as equipment is misleading compared to the level of respect military personnel have for their K-9 partners and care given to them. This verbiage is outdated and is being rewritten.  This new, updated publication will indicate the true level of appreciation and respect the USAF has for these valuable members of our USAF team.”
Our current goal is to remind the Air Force that we watching for the updated manual.

A couple months ago, I posted a comment about police brutality against dogs, and I'd like to reiterate just how severe this epidemic is.

WARNING: the following video is extremely graphic and disturbing, and contains video footage and audio of dogs being shot to death by law enforcement officers. The dogs scream in pain, and often suffer tremendously before finally dying. Viewer discretion is advised.

[link] - Not necessarily abuse, but certainly a widespread over-stepping of police authority. The link is to a Google Map view of dog deaths by police officers.
