Letter to the Editor: Investigate Circumstances of Cocker Spaniel’s Euthanasia

I am extremely disheartened, saddened and very concerned by what I read on a Facebook posting today by Second Chance Cocker Rescue ...

“Today in violation of California state law, the director of the Santa Barbara Animal Shelters, Jan Glick, killed a cocker spaniel named Einstein. The Hayden Act requires animal shelters to allow rescues to pull dogs before they are euthanized. Our request to pull Einstein was denied and he was killed this morning.”

According to a Noozhawk, Glick denied the request of this rescue group the chance to rehabilitate Einstien. This is unacceptable and now she must pay for this serious violation of animal rights. I expect the County of Santa Barbara to take a close, hard look at Ms. Glick’s decision making abilities.

Every animal deserves to be treated humanely, to be given opportunities to thrive, and a chance to live out its normal life.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
