    This isn't the first time animals have been stolen fron this shelter. I was there during the lunch hour one day just in time to see three girls walking out with a kitten they had stolen from one of the cages. They saw me getting their license plate and a few minutes later they came back with the kitten saying they found it in the room out of the cage.Are the anomals at this shelter really going to goof homes?

    Corrupt California Department of Justice Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement employees where stealing drugs from evidence vaults and reselling them to cover extensive credit card debt.

    They also are creating suspects by planting evidence just so that they can steal jewelry, money, etc… from them.
    They poisoned my dog to death and started to use gang members to harass me because I complained to the San Francisco DA's office that they where fabricating evidence and stealing from me.
