42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983: Civil action for deprivation of rights

*********************************************

Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer's judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.

The No Kill Advocacy Center has become increasingly aware that some officials who oversee shelters are threatening volunteers and rescuers that if they speak publicly about conditions at the shelter, they will be banned from volunteering or rescuing animals. But in actually banning or threatening to ban volunteers and rescuers, these officials nationwide are not only holding the animals hostage by threatening to kill them as punishment, they are also violating the civil rights of volunteers.

In 2008, Los Angeles rescuers teamed up with the No Kill Advocacy Center to file a lawsuit which alleged that the civil rights of volunteers and rescuers were being violated as retaliation for going public with their observations of inhumane conditions and neglectful treatment at the shelter. The court agreed.

In applying a federal civil rights statute to this area, the court gave animal activists a powerful weapon to reform the nation's broken animal shelter system. Volunteers and rescuers no longer have to choose between remaining silent about abuses or risk losing their ability to help some animals by volunteering or rescuing them from death row.

Attorney Sheldon Eisenberg, who brought the ground-breaking lawsuit, argues that 'Section 1983,' which was enacted as part of the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 can now help extend the protection of laws to those individuals committed to safeguarding the welfare and rights of the animals entrusted to our care.

Petition: Stop Animal Abuse in Kentucky Shelters

****************************************************

To Sign Petition:  http://www.thepetitionsite.com/184/stop-animal-abuse-in-kentucky-shelters

Kentucky pets continue to be shot by animal control officers at county shelters, and cats sold to laboratories.  This is because the state gave control of county shelters over to county government officials, known as Judge Executives (they are not real judges, but elected business people in the 138 counties in the state, which are mostly rural and poverty stricken). 

The state law enforcers are the local state police, who in turn, answer to local county officials also. So when these officials don't care about the animals, or dont want to spend any funds on them, the shelters are humane disasters,  case in point the Ohio County shelter who many have accused of shooting dogs instead of spending the money on euthanasia injections. See the link below.  Some counties even make money by selling the cat carcasseso labs and colleges, instead of trying to get cats adopted. 
http://www.news25.us/Global/story.asp?S=11501732

County officials do not care about enforcing state laws because there is no enforcement or consequences if the do not! 

Please sign this petition and tell our Governor Steve Beshear, that this must change and change now!  Currently, the state law allows counties to treat animals inhumanely without consequences.  

This really  is no law at all, and doesn't serve the citizens or their pets best interest.  Kentucky needs a state level Animal Humane Agency to oversee and enforce the humane treatment of our precious animals, and enforce the state laws that exist and create more humane laws that are in line with federal statues.  Also, there are millions of dollars in  Kentucky stimulus money available to start this agency right now.

Petition: Justice for Dusty!

****************************************************
Posted 11/17

To Sign petition, visit http://www.thepetitionsite.com/149/justice-for-dusty

Golden Retriever hung by owner


On or about November 4, 2009 in Owingsville, KY, a beautiful two year old Golden Retriever named "Dusty" was found hanging from a backhoe in a macabre display of brutality, visible to any who were unfortunate witnesses passing on a nearby road.  The owner of the dog, Wesley Barrett, claims that his unnamed neighbor shot and killed the dog, upon finding the dog dead he hung the dog as a message to his neighbor.  A shocked witness of the hanging dog took photos and called animal control.  Police were notified and sent to the Barrett residence, however, Mr. Barrett failed to name the neighbor that allegedly shot the dog, he failed to press charges and the police did not nvestigate this gruesome murder. 

According to many reports, an investigation into this murder has been requested, however, to date, the concern for Dusty's murder seems to have disappeared as quickly as his body.  We call for an investigation into this senseless murder.  We ask what pet owner would hang his dead dog and refuse to press charges against whoever allegedly murdered his dog? 

We ask the officials of Kentucky to take a stand, do not let Dusty's murder go unpunished, this was blatant animal abuse and nothing less. Dusty was only 2 years old, I cannot imagine the pain this dog suffered prior to his death. 

We remind the officials in Kentucky that as the new year comes so do the elections and we remind the citizens of Kentucky to remember Dusty, remember if your elected officials cannot protect and enforce safety of the animals of Kentucky, how can they protect and enforce the safety of it's people? 

People have responded with disgust at the hanging of this dog from not just around the United States but from around the World.  Kentucky, your failure to follow up on this atrocity has embarrassed your state, I urge you do the right thing and look into this matter, who really killed Dusty?
