Subject: THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHILE BOKS BLOGS, PUPPIES ARE DYING--"Lilly", beloved young sweet Yellow Lab, and her weaned pups, at South LA Annex

Look at this gorgeous, sweet young Yellow Lab girl, Lilly--there is no nicer dog, even the employees love her. But she's been hidden away at the Annex all this time--where there is maybe one employee per shift, and no one looks after the animals, and the moms and pups suffer for it the most. Lilly has the most precious puppies.

Lilly's puppies had been growing and managed to survive for 2 months--so why are they suddenly in such bad shape now, and even dying??? The moms and pups at the Annex are neglected--not kept warm. And the most often voiced complaint by volunteers--the moms are not fed, they are STARVED in the pound, so they don't make enough milk to feed their babies. We have all seen this time and time again, it never improves. And these puppies are weaned, so they should be given solid food in addition to the mom nursing them. They should be given high quality wet and dry food.

No one sees these poor babies, they are hidden behind locked doors at the Annex--no one even knows what kind of conditions they are being kept in. Now there are hardly ever even volunteers allowed to go and check on the moms and pups at the Annex. The moms and pups must be even more neglected than before.

This is a horrendous tragedy, this poor precious mom so perfect--her poor babies dying in the pound. This is why there are so many animals dying in the pounds without being outright killed. Here is what one volunteer wrote about this poor perfect family, who should have been rescued all together long ago:

"Lilly now has only two of her original five (I believe) pups with her. David, ACT, told me that they suddenly began to deteriorate. One was probably put down, though I'm not sure, and two are in the medical room of the main shelter. The two that she has -- one is not thriving, tiny brindle, I think, and only the white with brown patch is reasonably strong, though appears very shy.

Lilly is really the sweetest girl imaginable and very gently takes her treats. Let me know if you want further into. I'll be there tomorrow..."

While Boks blogs to PR himself and his nonexistent programs, and raids and mass murders animals to get on television.

Subject: The originator of Animal Precinct is a major animal killer, felon convicted of kidnapping, child rape, etc.

This ought to prove Boks scam regarding getting LAAS on Animal Precinct by violating the rights of Mason AND killing his cats saying they had a disease they tested negative for! And please publish it! Make any commentary you wish re Boks' connection to this hoodlum and co. Boks must not be permitted to make any of the exposure of what he did to Mason and the animals--and regularly does to so many others--go away.


The show "Animal Precinct" CONSISTS of "animal control" breaking and entering into people�s homes in order to steal their animals--and KILL THEM. So the existence of this show RELIES on and REQUIRES that "animal control" continues to CONSPIRE to PLAN and PERPETRATE illegal break-ins and thefts of animals.

The original creator of "Animal Precinct" was Frank David Garcia, an "animal control" criminal, exposed on ABC television�s 20/20 show�and the episode won awards for its uncovering of corruption, mass slaughter, abuse of humans and animals. A volunteer writes: "Frank David Garcia is a CONVICTED FELON OF KIDNAPPING, RAPE OF A CHILD, AND KIDNAPPING-RAPE WITH A DEADLY WEAPON, 14 DRUNK DRIVING CHARGES IN 5 STATES. That's the type of person associated with Animal Precinct."

Subject: Psycho Boks blogging lies about the no-kill equation while puppies die of cold and rain, and management kills off the rest

Have you taken a look at Boks' blog lately? It's nothing but day after day of drivel, claiming that "no kill solutions" are and have been implemented all along at LAAS. There is so much nonsense on there--he hasn't been able to make no kill solutions go away, so he's doing what HSUS and the other greedy killers are doing--pretending to embrace no kill in order to cash in on the good PR of actual no kill and to cover up their crimes. This is another opportunity for the master of spin to blog his nonsense and being paid for it. Meanwhile, the animals are freezing their tails off in the winter chill and winds, and are soaked in the rains.

What's it going to take to get of these deadbeats who are living off the County and City of L.A.? Why doesn't some group kidnap them and terrorize them the way they terrorize the animals?

I have been encountering Leslie for years now doing my Independent rescue. I have called her and told her I am coming to get a dog, and she kills it anyway. I have a question regarding her. How do we get her fired? I have many specific cases in which she has killed dog after dog that I have been in the process of saving as well as a couple of other rescuers. please let me know what we can do to help create an energy towards her job termination. Thanks

Subject: Re: [stopthekilling] NATHAN WINOGRAD RESPONDS TO BOKS' BLOGS!


Thank you for sending Winograd's clear and precise response to Boks' (blog's) approach to his appointed position in LAAS. The Mayor's appointment of Boks was not first investigated as to his education and potential competence to run the department to the benefit of the impounded animals--to alleviate their pain and suffering and early deaths and to save their lives and place them in good and caring homes. Boks should be placed out on medical leave and mental evaluation and then bought off as was the previous department director. Winograd's response is so direct and true that changes must be effected immediately in the L A Department of Animal Services. The Mayor must realize his own popularity has been reduced to zero. He has more interest in walking door to door with Hillary in Iowa than listening to the clamor of his own constituents to stop the deaths of animals caused by the craziness of Boks' intent to manipulate the death figures. The system of having a Mayor appoint a Department Executive in a city the size of LA is archaic--he/she should pass all the tests and interviews and background checks--not just be slipped in on some political promises! Animals should not be dying while waiting years for City of L. A. to wake up!

Dear ADLLA,

These are not the unintended consequences of a No Kill shelter, but rather the intended consequences of an incompetent, animal-abusing sociopath and pathological liar who got caught in both new York City and Maricopa County but had the temerity to think that he could come to our fair city and hoodwink Angelenos into believing that he would establish the very No Kill shelters he now seeks to slander!

If there was a Nobel prize for spin-doctoring, he would win it hands down! It just doesn't dawn on this cognitively challenged criminal that it would be so much easier just to do his job - the one for which he is paid a handsome $165,000 a year from our hard-earned taxpayer dollars - than to have to come up with every devious trick in the book to cover up his ineptitude and disdain for life. Guess what, Ed? Since you obviously have trouble identifying cause and effect, let me clarify it for you: Both the legal pickets of the above-ground and the actions of the underground are a reaction to - not a determination of - your ongoing fraud, deception, and slaughter.

Like all psychopaths, Ed et al can dish it out but can't take it. They murder tens of thousands of innocent animals with aplomb - but snivel and whine like the true cowards they are when a little well-deserved justice is delivered by the only people who will step up to the plate to do so. Villaraigosa, Blackman, and Boks are a triumvirate of tyranny akin to Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld. They perceive - just like the Nazis who grandiosely believed that the Third Reich would endure for one thousand years - perceive that they will get away indefinitely with their crimes. Their reign of terror will end - and would do so that much sooner if Villaraigosa would get off his derelict duff, fire these imbeciles, and hire someone competent and compassionate who will implement the proven tenets of Nathan Winograd's NoKill Solutions.

But, we understand, Tony. Potholes are so much more important than tens of thousands of lives, aren't they? The promise of a multi-million-dollar contribution (which never panned out) for a future gubernatorial run was so much more important than tens of thousands of lives, wasn't it? That imperialistic clamoring behind the zipper of your jeans that only Mirthala's favors could temper was so much more important than tense of thousands of lives, wasn't it?

Life - both animal and human - means nothing in this country. It's all about power, greed, and acquisition. Little Tony was so boyishly charming on that podium before the Humane Convention, speaking adoringly of his own beloved doggies and swearing to do right by those in the shelters not so fortunate to have homes. Good job, Tony! At least when the trucks come to pick up the corpses and transport them to the rendering facility, the ride is a lot smoother thanks to the potholes you've filled!

Subject: RE: My Synopsis of Nathan Winograd's Commentary on Boks

To be successful, a shelter must utilize the programs and services of the No Kill Equation not sometimes; not merely when it is convenient or politically expedient; and not just in name - but rather for every single animal, every single time.

The No Kill Equation, when implemented with integrity by a director sincerely desiring to end the killing, fundamentally changes shelter operations so that killing is no longer an option�except for irremediably suffering animals, animals who are hopelessly ill and injured, and truly vicious dogs (less than 8% of the total shelter population).

Achieving No Kill, in which over 90% of animals entering a shelter are saved, requires universal replacement with innovative and life-affirming protocols of century-old failed and death-oriented policies. It is obviously not enough to simply recycle sexy names for programs like " New Hope" and "FELIX" while tens of thousands of dogs and cats are being put to death.

For example, the No Kill Equation requires every neonatal kitten to be cared for in a foster home - not just a small percentage, while the rest are killed.

If Boks truly implemented all the programs he claims to, in-house deaths would not be skyrocketing; they would instead be plummeting. Nor would deaths for rabbits and other animals be increasing so dramatically. And where there are declines, they would be substantial - as they are in Washoe County, NV. There, deaths have fallen for dogs by 50% - for cats by 80% - in one year. Not the paltry level of decline Boks claims as victory in his spin-heavy press releases whose purpose is to obscure rather than illuminate reality.

Feeling the pressure to change, directors like Boks are implementing token-level changes to their operations (some of which Nathan Winograd describes in the No Kill Equation) to diffuse criticism, to disingenuously suggest an honest "college try," and to deceitfully claim a personally blameless lack of success. Activists must be vigilant in demanding that those programs be expanded to the point that they replace killing entirely. Benchmarks include:

A fully functioning volunteer program where at least 300 people for every 100,000 human residents actually help at least one time per week at the shelter;

Offsite adoptions at multiple locations seven days per week;

Socialization programs so that cats get out of their cages at least two times per day and dogs at least three times for walks and play time;

Medical & behavior rehabilitation programs that control disease, keep animals healthy, and provide care for those who are savable (the fact that animals dying in their kennel is skyrocketing in your community�s pound system is absolute proof that this is not the case);

A fully functioning TNR program that replaces killing through neutering and release (See the following Model Feral Cat Protocol at http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org/pdf/FeralPolicy.pdf )

A foster care program for underaged kittens, puppies, as well as injured and traumatized adults, those needing a break from the shelter, and to handle overflow during peak periods;

Low and no cost spay/neuter opportunities for at risk animals, with a minimum of 1,000 surgeries for every 100,000 human residents (It should be noted that most successful communities around the country achieved success before the spay/neuter effort was in place);

Adoption programs seven days a week with evening and weekend hours;

Carte blanche for legitimate rescue groups to save any animal on death row, any time without bureaucratic hurdles and permissions from a select group of animals;

Programs above and beyond haphazard advice from hurried workers on the telephone to help owners overcome the behavioral, medical and environmental conditions which cause them to surrender their pets (A 1996 JAVMA study found that this reduces the chance of relinquishment by as much as 94 %);

A compassionate, hard working director who holds his or her staff accountable, making sure customer service is good, people are friendly, animals are getting proper care, the shelter is clean, people are doing their jobs, all the cages and kennels are kept full if necessary, and programs and services are being expanded and carried out. in the entire history of animal sheltering, the transition from a culture based on killing to a culture of lifesaving has never happened without significant staff turnover. In Philadelphia , all the managers and half the line staff were terminated or resigned within six months. In Reno , every manager was given the option of resignation or termination. The same holds true in Charlottesville , Tompkins, and other places. If Boks has not done that, there can be no true change. The end result is the same killing, packaged with new rhetoric�A false hope, not a new hope.

Ed doesn't want to do the work - but cashing the $165,000 paychecks is empirically no problem. He is aided and abetted by newspapers like the Daily News that allow him to avow that No Kill by necessity means skyrocketing rates of disease - when communities which are succeeding have proven this to be patently false.

The high numbers of animals dying in kennel evidences lack of oversight, poor care, and neglect by shelter personnel. The paltry declines in killing rates and the shocking escalation of deaths of rabbits and other animals incontrovertibly puts the lie to Boks' claims of true and comprehensive No Kill Equation implementation. And no amount of blogging can spin the truth out of that.
