We are a coalition of people from many different backgrounds. We want to change the idea which exists - saving a few animals and euthanizing the rest - we want to save them all!
Our mission is to bring the NO KILL EQUATION to San Bernardino County one shelter at a time.
The NO KILL EQUATION is a simple formula of 11 common-sense steps that have proven to bring our shelters into the 21st century.
Ventura County became a NO KILL shelter three years ago and has not killed for space during this time. This is one of the many shelters following this simple formula that has been proven effective throughout the United States. The High Desert Animal Coalition will work hand-in-hand with our shelters and help network our foster groups and animal sanctuaries.
We promise to speak for those who have no voice, we seek transparency and cooperation from our city and county shelters. We are allies to our local law enforcement and will work to ensure, those who commit crimes against animals, are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
We will work closely without politicians to ensure that stricter laws are created to protect animals and the prevention of animal abuse and to see that those who break the law will be held accountable and prosecuted accordingly.
