Students Give Back at Burbank Animal Shelter

During the week of Valentine’s Day at the Burbank Animal Shelter, local students from George Washington Elementary School have pitched in to make sure rescued animals are feeling loved. 

February is Kindness Awareness Month at George Washington Elementary in Burbank, and visiting the shelter to read to animals is serving as their community outreach initiative. GWE Principal Brandi Young says the goal is to teach kids the value of giving back and treating animals with kindness. 

“I hope [students learn] that you need to serve your community,” Young said. “Always get out there and help. And be kind, empathetic and understanding that animals need love and a home.”

Fifth grader Cash Levin says his involvement at the shelter has instilled in him a love of animals. As a frequent visitor, he knows that adoption is crucial because “these pets might have been here for one or two years” without finding a home, Levin said.

Being around the animals has also inspired Levin’s future career aspirations.

“I either want to work [at the Burbank Animal Shelter] or be a veterinarian,” Levin added.

Fellow fifth grader Hailey Collins read to two cats during the event and felt compelled to volunteer in order to make the animals feel appreciated. 

“[Visiting is important] so they can be happier,” Collins said. 

Stacie Wood-Levin serves as Senior Animal Control Officer at the Burbank Animal Shelter and emphasizes how the event provides a great opportunity for students and the animals alike.

“[The kids] absolutely love it,” Wood-Levin said. “I think a lot of these kids live in apartments and they can’t have animals so it’s nice for them to come here and be able to pet them and talk to them. It’s good for them to read and it’s calming for the animals.”

Besides organized, school-related events, the shelter also allows for visitors to read to animals throughout the year.

“We have an ongoing program where we have donated books from the library, and they can just come get one if they’re here with their parents and sit down and read to an animal at any time,” Wood-Levin added.

Overall, Wood-Levin encourages all Burbank residents to come visit the shelter, adopt, and gain a new perspective through the eyes of a rescue animal.

“It’s important to come in and bring your family and friends into the shelter just to see how wonderful our animals here are,” Wood-Levin said.

Saturday’s Clear The Shelter Event Puts Thirty Five Animals In New Homes

This past Saturday Burbank Animal Shelter participated in Clear The Shelters, a promotion in conjunction with KNBC Channel 4 to help reduce the number of animals in shelters. Offering reduced rates for adoptions, the countywide program is intended to reduce the number of animals overloading shelters.

The Volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter along with shelter staff helped people from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. as they looked through kennels of dogs, cats, bunnies and guinea pigs.

The results from the day are that 35 animals were adopted: five dogs, 28 cats, one rabbit and one guinea pig.

The shelter still has plenty of animals looking for new homes.

Providencia Students Begin Burbank Animal Shelter Reading Program

About 30 Providencia Elementary students read to dogs, cats and rabbits at the Burbank Animal Shelter after school on Tuesday, April 25.

The third-, fourth- and fifth-graders were brought by their parents to read to the animals in a program organized by third-grade teacher Kelly Ohrt and Animal Control Officer Stacie Levin-Wood.

“I love children, animals and teaching!” explained Ohrt. “I’m always trying to think of incentives to get my students reading more often. So this seemed like something they would love, plus the animals could benefit too.”

Ohrt came across this idea of students reading to shelter animals in the summer of 2016, reading reports of similar stories online. She contacted the Burbank Animal Shelter at the beginning of the 2016-17 school year and worked with the Burbank City Attorney, the Shelter and the Burbank Unified School District to get the program sorted out.

“The students and parents were very excited to have this opportunity,” said Ohrt.

“I put chairs in all of the rooms where we house animals,” said Levin-Wood. “I figured there might be some children who would be more comfortable reading to a bunny that would not bark and if they preferred cats, they could read to them instead.”

“The dogs were at peace and seemed very comfortable with the children,” added Levin-Wood. “Normally there is a lot of barking going on when kids are in the kennels, but yesterday they were zen and composed and seemed to enjoy the attention and mirrored the children’s calmness.”

“I am excited to start this program on a regular basis and I have no doubt that it will benefit both the children and our animals and that’s what it should be about really.”

“As I walked around taking pics and watching the students read, I saw the empathy and caring in their faces,” Ohrt also said. “It really warmed my heart to see it.”

“The animals seemed to really enjoy it too and many were so relaxed by it that they cuddled up next to the children and fell asleep.”

“So great to witness, especially when it helped out so many of the animals at a time when they need it the most.”

Ohrt and Levin-Wood plan to continue the reading program at the Burbank Animal Shelter on a monthly basis when school resumes for the 2017-18 school year.

Local Girl Scouts Collect Donations For Burbank Animal Shelter

The seven- and eight-year-old Brownies of Girl Scout Troop 7026 of Greater Los Angeles chose to give back to their Burbank community by holding a pet food and supply drive during the month of May. The youngsters donated the items collected and a Petco gift card of $246 to the Burbank Animal Shelter on Wednesday, May 20.

“The girls had a blast,” said troop leader Toni Avalos. “The girls created fliers to pass door to door, shot a commercial for posting on social media and even partnered with Petco in Burbank to collect donations outside their store for a day.”

The girls also picked up donations from neighbors, family and friends. When they took all the donations to the Burbank Animal Shelter, the Brownies also had a tour of the facility and met some of the furry friends staying there.

The Brownies collected a bag of bunny food, 105 cans and five bags of cat food, 100 cans and six bags and four boxes of dog food, a box of doggy treats, 20 blankets, two comfort mats, a ball, two dog chew toys, five food bowls, a dog sweater, a dog collar, a dog harness, a dog leash, a cat bed and $246 towards a Petco gift card.

“I love animals and I’m happy we could help them,” commented Girl Scout Brownie Brooklynn. “It took our whole troop to gather donations, we couldn’t have done it by ourselves.”

Burbank Takes on Puppy Mills – An Animal Rights Perspective

Editor’s Note:  This is part two in a series looking at the controversial topic of “Puppy Mills” and the attempt to ban the sale of the animals in Burbank, which will be taken up by the City Council possibly in late January

By John Savageau
BurbankNBeyond

In January the City of Burbank will again engage in discussion on whether or not to follow 12 other California cities, including Glendale, Hermosa Beach, Irvine, Los Angeles, and others in both LA and Orange Counties, in banning the sale of pets in retail businesses, including pet shops.

The question many ask is simply, “why?”

There is no simple answer.  However contributing justification includes:

  • Alleged sadistic treatment of breeding animals and litters at commercial breeders – primarily in mid-western states, through the logistics process delivering animals to retail pet stores
  • High number of available rescue dogs, either abandoned or surrendered to an animal shelter or rescue, and subsequent need to euthanize animals which can no longer be housed at shelters due to excessive numbers
  • Danger of “in-breeding” by incompetent or unethical breeders
  • Obsolete laws and ordinances protecting the safety and welfare of animals

Part 2 of the series “Burbank Takes on Puppy Mills” will focus on the position of animal rights groups, shelters, and adoption agencies and their views on the above topics.  Future articles in the series will try to dig further into the perspectives of pet shop owners, and city council members preparing to weigh in on the issue.

“A pet store that closes its doors is a lost opportunity for shelter animals.” (Elizabeth Oreck)

According to the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) a puppy mill is a ”large-scale commercial dog breeding operation that places profit over the well-being of its dogs—who are often severely neglected—and acts without regard to responsible breeding practices.”

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) states there are an estimated 10,000 puppy mills in America, producing more than 2,000,000 puppies for distribution throughout the United States.  USUS also notes there are up to 3,000,000 animals euthanized at shelters annually.

No-Kill Los Angeles, an initiative of the Best Friends Animal Society, states 56,121 animals entered LA city shelters in 2011. More than 17,000 of those animals were euthanized.

Horrible numbers.  Nobody wants to see or think about such a waste of life, and the thought a family pet could come to such an end.  This is the reason animal rights groups such as Burbank CROPS (Citizens for Rescue-Only Pet Stores) and the Best Friends Animal Society are engaged not only in trying to save the lives of animals, but also in preventing the cruelty inflicted on both breeding stock and puppies (this article will focus on puppies, however the same issue applies to cats, birds, and other animals as well).

The Real Problem

Animal right groups, such as Burbank CROPS, do not want to shut down pet stores, as Shelly Rizzotti, Burbank CROPS member explains, they simply want to prevent pet stores from selling or distributing commercially bred “puppy mill” dogs.

No group has an objection to people buying pure bred puppies – from responsible hobby breeders or individuals.  According to Elizabeth Oreck, National Manager of Puppy Mill Initiatives for the Best Friends Animal Society, those sources will normally screen and vet prospective buyers or adopters prior to allowing an animal to join the adopting family.

(Photo By John Savageau)

Responsible breeders will follow a code of ethics, which includes a very detailed set of guidelines for breeding animals.  There are representative specific breeds ranging from the Mountain Dog Association, German Shepard Dog Club, Great Dane Club of America, Golden Retriever Club of America, to the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America and all breeds in between.  A standard clause in all the codes of ethics includes a statement similar to:

Breeders shall not knowingly sell to dog wholesalers, retailers or pet stores, known or suspected puppy mills, or commercial breeders. Breeders shall not donate dogs or puppies as prizes nor knowingly allow any dogs of their breeding to fall into public trust. All advertisement of puppies and dogs, written or oral shall be factual and as forthright and honest as possible in both substance and implication. (Mountain Dog Association).

Anne Gaffney, owner of Burbank’s Pet Haven, goes even further.  She notes that “with all the rescue animals available, people should give those animals the first chance.“  Gaffney continued ”adopting a pet is all about the connection.   You cannot buy a connection, and it is possible the connection between you and a pet may have nothing to do with the breed.”

Laws Regulating Commercial Breeders

There are many laws and codes regulating commercial breeders, including federal, state, and local.  At the top of the regulatory structure is the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA), which dates back to 1966.  The US Department of Agriculture website states the AWA regulates the treatment of animals in research, exhibition, transport, and by dealers.  The Animal Welfare Act (AWA) requires that minimum standards of care and treatment be provided for certain animals bred for commercial sale, used in research, transported commercially, or exhibited to the public.

California has additional regulations including the Pet Store Animal Care Act, Pet Protection Act, Breeder Warranty Act, and according to a City of Burbank Study dated 16 October 2012, more than 50 other laws dealing with mistreatment of animals.

The Burbank Municipal Code, Title 5, Article 14 (Pet Shops), provides very specific guidelines on how pet shops must care for animals.  Officers from the Burbank Animal Shelter do perform periodic inspections, and according to Brenda Castaneda, Burbank Animal Shelter Superintendent, will cite violators for offenses.

An existing loophole in the regulatory environment surrounds the sale of puppies over the Internet.  This issue is being addressed by both congress and the senate at the federal level (HR835/S707), however the issue has not yet been solved, and as of today there is little or no regulation on the sale of commercially bred puppies over the Internet.

It should be noted that animal shelters and rescues are not required to comply with all laws and codes which regulate pet shops and commercial breeders, although all shelters are subject to inspection to ensure the health and safety of resident animals.

The Road Puppies Travel to Burbank Pet Stores

Puppies finding their way to pet stores will normally be bred in a commercial environment in the mid-west, primarily in Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, or surprisingly Amish communities in Ohio and Pennsylvania.  Puppies are delivered at around 6~7 weeks old by the breeder to a distribution or logistics company, such as the Hunte Company, based in Goodman, Missouri.

(Photo By John Savageau)

Hunte collects animals in their Missouri facility during the course of a week, during which time there will be health screening and matching pet shop demand with available stock.  A truck loaded with puppies will then head out across the country, delivering puppies to pet stores, including those in California.

The trip can take several days, during which time the puppies remain in cages, being fed and checked by delivery staff along the route.

A company such as Hunte will deliver an order to a pet shop, and the pet owner will inspect the animals, and either accept or reject the animal at the point of delivery.  If the pet passes arrival inspection, the pet store will settle with the delivery company, and then process the animal locally, sometimes passing through a veterinarian on the way to display in the store.

By the time a puppy hits the display cage, it is normally around 8 weeks old, having been away from its mother for about 2 weeks.

According to Christy Shilling, a CROPS member, the issue is “black and white.”  Shilling continued “This is about factory farming of mill animals.  Those terms are synonymous, of puppy mills, of puppy farms mass-producing animals.  It is cruel, and they do have violations.  That’s what we’d like to stop.  It’s not about attacking one store, but it is about attacking the mills.”

The goal of CROPS is to educate the public, and ultimately of course to stop the practice of puppy mills and retail sales of mill animals altogether.

A Model for the Future

None of the rights groups or individuals interviewed wants to prevent families from adding a pet to their family.  Pets have been part of social and family units since the beginning of recorded history, and it is a healthy relationship.

Rizzotti paints a model where pet stores may still provide pets to their customers, as adoption outlets for rescue animals.  In most cases the business model for a pet store is not in pushing flesh, but rather in selling pet supplies such as feed, toys, and environments.

Rizzotti explains there are still ample pure bred animals available through rescues, including puppies.     As noted, there are breeding clubs and organizations for nearly all types of breeds, all with a strict code of how they raise, handle, and sell puppies.

(Photo By John Savageau)

An example search on the website breeders.net revealed three Yorkshire Terrier breeders within 10 miles of Burbank’s 91501 zip code.  One breeder listed, who asked to remain anonymous, has the following splash on the website:   Adorable tiny male puppies, AKC, 1st shots, Champion Bloodlines, great personalities available to good homes. No Agents, No Pet Shops, & No Brokers, NO SHIPPING.

In a phone conversation with the breeder she passionately explained that her dogs only were only available to buyers she personally screened, and the transfer required a list of steps, including full papers, shot record, visit to a veterinarian prior to accepting the puppy.  The breeder is a member of the American Kennel Club (AKC), and claims complete adherence to AKC

The American Kennel Club has an investigations and inspections program to both ensure the health and safety of animals within member kennels, as well as checking paperwork for compliance with club standards.  Field agents may also conduct DNA testing on dogs to verify the pedigree and parentage of puppies.

While the AKC inspection process has no penal or regulatory authority, if a kennel or breeder has major deficiencies during an inspection, they may lose their membership in the AKC, be fined, or in a worst case the AKC may contact law enforcement to ensure the animals are protected.

What Do Animal Rights Groups Want from Burbank?

(Photo By John Savageau)

Rizzotti is very clear about the objectives Burbank CROPS wishes to accomplish in the upcoming Burbank City Council discussion on pet stores and puppy mills.  That is to support elimination of puppy mills, and prevent pet stores from selling commercially bred animals originating in puppy mills.

Part 3 of this series will explore the perspective of pet store owners selling puppies, and others who do not support the position of animal rights groups on the topics of commercial breeding and pet store sales.

BurbankNBeyond would like to hear from all readers on the topic, regardless of your position.  Please send your comments to jsavageau@burbanknbeyond.com

 

Burbank Community Makes Animal Shelter X-ray Machine a Reality

The staff and volunteers of the Burbank Animal Shelter were delighted to unveil their first-ever X-ray machine at the facility this week. According to VBAS President Denise Fleck, “It took a year’s effort of fundraising, inspections, revamps to the Shelter including plumbing for the processor and electrical hook-up for the actual unit, lead aprons, radiation badges and all the necessary tools as well as establishing a fund for on-going expenses, but we are thrilled to have the equipment in place improving the quality of care we are able to give our dogs, cats and rabbits.”

Efforts kicked off in early 2011 with a Grant given by VCA Charities for the cause. Media attention brought other donors including former Burbank Animal Shelter Kennel Attendant Rosie LoBruto and her husband Ed Tucker. “Having an x-ray machine at the Shelter was always my dream,” shared LoBruto. “I always felt bad for animals that had come into the shelter injured to then have to be transported to another facility for an x-ray.”

Burbank residents Bob and Janice Casazza Piatak contributed in memory of a Norwegian Elkhound named Max they had long-before adopted from the Shelter. “We know what a difference [the X-ray machine] can make to the health of the injured animals that are brought to the Shelter. We are familiar with the great service Dr. Small started with the Veterinary [program] on site that continues today,” Janice explained.

Others who deserve ‘four paws up’ for their contributors include long-time supporter and co-host of the Burbank Channel’s “Adopt a Pet” Show Janice Lowers; Joe Maynard and The Feline Conservation Center, Alicia Garcia and Victor Medical; Warner Bros. Studio Facilities as well as the countless individuals who transported items, lent a helping hand or contributed the dollars that made it possible to help the animals.

In the short time the machine has been in place…

imaging, RVT Jeannette Dease and the Shelter Veterinarians (Drs. Greer & Howe) wereable to view the progress of the object and avoid unnecessary invasive surgery.

• A one-year-old Lab/Sharpei arrived unable to bear weight on her rear leg. If this was a dislocation, doctors had only a short window in which to re-set the joint and probably not within the time frame of sending her elsewhere for imaging. Thanks to the on-site machine, the dog was x-rayed at the Shelter and immediately placed on pain medications.No surgery was needed and she has since been adopted!

• The extent of injury showed the need to amputate a Jack Russell/Chihuahua’s leg.  Unlike us humans, dogs don’t carry the baggage of being different with three legs, andPunch is now a healthy boy full of life anxiously waiting to be adopted.

• A Labrador Retriever was diagnosed with bladder stones while a nine-years-young cat was found not to have suspected abdominal masses after imaging. Both were immediately place on special diets and avoided invasive treatment because the Burbank Animal Shelter’s Medical Team could take “a look inside” via x-rays!

The Burbank Community working together to help the animals…It is a PAWSively wonderful thing!
