The UCLA Animal Law Program sends a warm thanks to everyone who attended our event Animal Shelter Litigation last night and showed your support for the excellent work of Bruce Wagman and Sheldon Eisenberg and your dedication to helping the animals of Los Angeles County! The handouts provided by the speakers will remain available for viewing and download at http://tinyurl.com/ucladocs.
For those at the event last night who asked about resources concerning making public records requests, two great sources are the Los Angeles Times’ Citizens’ Guide to Acquiring California Public Records and the Los Angeles Times’ Pocket Guide to the California Public Records Act. A third great resource, and one that is specific to public records act requests to shelters, is ShelterTrak, which has links to actual PRA requests to LA shelters and documents obtained through PRA requests.
Attorneys and rescuers interested in participating in a discussion and action group for matters concerning animal shelters, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will create a discussion list for collaboration.
Stay tuned for announcements for future events–we hope to see you there!
