March 10, 2011 – SF Animal Control and Welfare Commission votes to recommend that the Board of Supervisors oppose the Preferred Alternative

On March 10, 2001, the City & County of San Francisco Commission of Animal Control and Welfare voted 5-2 in favor of recommending that the Board of Supervisors oppose the Preferred Alternative because it did not take into account the impact on dog behavior (problems developing because either dogs don’t get as much exercise as now or because of problems associated with overcrowding in city parks that result from so many people and dogs being kicked out of the GGNRA), and because it did not look at the possible impact that an increase in problem dog behaviors could have on the surrender rate at city shelters (dogs surrendered because of problem behaviors) and possibly on the euthanasia rate at shelters.
