Press conference on steps of city hall Thursday August 7th. 11 am.¬* RPOA has
pulled out of the fight to reverse this ruling by Guerra.¬* Getting
nasty... almost 400 signatures on the petition from all over the world...ppl
cancelling vacation plans to s.a. and saying they will never come here again...

have you seen the latest ruling by the city of san antonio?¬* they will no
longer work with any rescue or our liason rpoa and have chosen to mass gas
all the dogs there instead to save money...budget deficits...¬* NO RESCUE
we have a press conference set for thurs at city hall...permission to
crosspost too! thks ! c

I'll make this short and as sweet as possible.¬* Our president (RPOA), Mary
Beth, has apparently decided to bow out of the fight against San Antonio
animal control and their decision to ban all purebred rescuers on RPOA's list.¬*
Maybe I should re-phrase that to say FORMER RPOA members, because I think if we
don't make a stand here and now there won't be any more RPOA.¬*¬* I'm asking
ALL members to plan on showing up on the steps of San Antonio City Hall this
coming Thursday, at 11:00 a.m. to participate in a protest demonstration aimed
directly at animal control.¬*¬* If a news crew shows up (and I think at least
one will) I will act as spokesperson for this demonstration.¬* No one needs to
speak on camera if you don't want to.¬* So far I only have a handful of rescuers
who've said they'll definitely be there.¬* Does that mean only a handful of
people care about the future of purebred dogs in San Antonio?¬* Better think
about it.¬*
So far today I've received three calls from people who've called ADL and the
Humane Society in hopes of turning in their purebred dogs¬*¬*¬* -- and ALL of
those people were told "no" because both facilities are full AND because the
Danes are "too big".¬* Wonderful.¬*
