The City of San Diego just released the draft contract with San Diego Humane Society (SDHS) who will be taking over animal control on July 1st, 2018. • THERE IS NO PROVISION THAT San Diego Humane Society HAS TO REACH OUT FOR ANIMALS AT RISK - The only wording in the contract says SDHS must "maintain partnerships with regional rescue partnerships to facilitate the placement of adoptable, fosterable animals" - but what about the animals they deem "unadoptable" which are primarily the ones Frosted Faces Foundation rescues? • The required live release is only 80% for cats and dogs **THIS IS AWFUL** The County is requiring 85% live release rate in its managed competition contract and for Fiscal Year 2017 DAS' live release rate was 86%! Many more animals WILL die under this 80% live release requirement. Luckily this initial contract is only for 18 months, after which contract terms and policies will be reconsidered. Contract documents are attached. Read a local rescues take on the arrangement here: https://www.facebook.com/frostedfacesfoundation/posts/1891256180936923
