I looked up Gil and found very little. Martha's all over the internet, even down to her home address. Gil, why the low profile?

Gil is a good harted person he was trying to clean the issues in Elsinore even when he did not live here. When It comes to animal friends of the Valley and well being and compassionate care Animal Friends of the Valley Kills over 5000 animals a year. the only compassionate thing thing about that the name they call it down plays the killing they do.. Euthanize

DA why dont you figure out a solution for them then? If they cannot get anyone to adopt, what do they do?
Ken Mayes July 14, 2012 at 04:40 PM
AG I have already suggested to AFV that they adopt the plan used in Calgary, Canada. In 2010 Calgary a city of 1 million people and 90,000 dogs euthanized only 203 dogs. This program is also completely funded by fees and fines, no taxpayer subsidies. Animal control in all of Riverside County is more of the same, the wants of a few paid for by the many.
Kevin - Wildomar CA July 14, 2012 at 04:42 PM
Good question American Girl. Euthanasia is sad, but having animals be alive in a living hell with no hope is worse. I've deeply pondered this issue myself, and the only answer I can come up with is an enormous amount of money. Money will make a bigger facility, allow more personnel, open more hours.... So how much money? Whatever it takes. Problem is, that's not an option. The public won't back that. I've learned that people are very good at ignoring agony as long as it's out of sight, out of mind.
Cat July 14, 2012 at 05:55 PM
Might try nipping it in the bud, so to speak. Does this facility offer low cost or free pet neutering? If they do, might try hanging up flyers in the markets & pet stores where the owners buy the pets food. I'm sure they'll realize that 1 snipsnip appointment is less hassle than dumping off batch after batch of puppies.

For those interested in the Calgary Model there are several recent articles about their success. Just google Calgary animal control model. One site is http://redstarcafe.wordpress.com/2010/08/25/the-calgary-model/ With a 95% compliance rate on licensing along with no mandatory spay/neuter laws, no limit on the number of pets allowed and a free ride home should your pet get lost. This program cost the taxpayer nothing

Popeye do you know that the KKK was started by democrats? Stop being such a juvenile D.B. !! Slavery was ended by a republican too! So sick of your lame comments! The state of California is being ruined because of the liberals. Unions and illegals are what will take us down. Wait and see!
Kevin - Wildomar CA July 15, 2012 at 05:36 PM
American Girl. I'm not going to mention the turd's name above, cuz to me he's just an uneducated spit, but I agree with your comments. And on slavery, I don't understand why the majority of blacks are democrats: "99% of Republicans voted to free the slaves in the District of Columbia, while 83% of Democrats voted to keep them enslaved." And the KKK, although I fit their "requirements" (white, blonde/blue, Nordic, conservative, and a form of Christian), I detest them. They are cruel, intolerant, hateful, and (thank God) decreasing in numbers.

Popeye how do you know that? Did you ask him? Loser! Yes Toni I am calling him a loser, so sick of his immaturity on here!
Anon July 16, 2012 at 02:06 AM
Kevin he is a perfect example of the intellect we have to deal with! I just roll my eyes, it's all I can do!
Anon July 16, 2012 at 02:38 AM
What's a democrate?
Cat July 16, 2012 at 02:41 AM
A.G. Why do you even bother to take the time to acknowledge this guy? I'm sure you're much too young to be so angry. Don't allow him to push your buttons..... that is what the scroll button is for. :~)
Cat July 16, 2012 at 02:57 AM
NOUN - a box made of slats nailed together for packing & transporting Democrats. CAUTION - If you come into contact with one.....be very careful. They might have rough edges, can be slippery @ times and have been known to be very taxing!
Kevin - Wildomar CA July 16, 2012 at 03:59 AM
*********************************** Too funny Cat! American Girl, don't stress yourself too much on that clown. I have a neighbor that knows of Poopeye in real life, and he says it's just best to avoid & ignore - apparently the doofus isn't overly bright and has confidence issues. I can believe it.
Roberto July 16, 2012 at 07:25 AM

Kevin - Wildomar CA July 16, 2012 at 04:11 PM
Ummm no. You are lying. Nice try.
Kevin - Wildomar CA July 16, 2012 at 04:14 PM
LOL Roberto, good one! But no, Pop is just a liar.
Roberto July 16, 2012 at 10:58 PM
Well...did Mr. Ade file for to run for city council?
Anon July 17, 2012 at 01:25 AM

Anon July 17, 2012 at 01:42 AM

Popeye July 17, 2012 at 05:17 PM
Jill it is a 24 hour job in fighting for this country and suppress the Tea Bagger hate group in this county.. These people should be on the FBI terrorists watch list; American Girl, Dog, Tonto, and Kevin are a few, but a racist hate group trying to undermind the US...There post are prime examples...ha ha ha

Tonto July 18, 2012 at 01:24 PM
No. The liberal media would be thrown some red meat. The Marxist communist must be voted out. We have an illegal alien in the White House :(
