As we all know, "No Kill" swears that MSN doesn't work even with results like in San Francisco for pit bulls. For those of you who don't know, MSN is mandatory spay/neuter--which Los Angeles really doesn't have--but it's close enough to make the AKC and Rosendahl want it gone for good. So why would anyone resist MSN? I'm about to answer that.
Bill Rosendahl was the ONLY Council member who voted AGAINST MSN in the City of LA, the only one out of fifteen members. Rosendahl is an admitted breeder himself and again we all know that the breeders hate MSN. His biggest supporter for raising the pet limits is a breeder who filed suit against MSN and has plans to file another lawsuit against MSN, dooming more shelter animals to die. Can anyone say wasting the taxpayer's money? Rosendahl also is responsible for bringing Brenda Barnette to LA, another known breeder, hell, she was a legislative rep for the AKC, even worse than being just a breeder. Barnette had enough dirt on her, she should have never been hired. She had no public sheltering experience either.
Rosendahl's plan was to team up with a breeder to do away with MSN. If an experienced animal control person had been hired, he wouldn't have stood a chance of defeating MSN. Thus the reason why he would support hiring a breeder, one who would stand with him on stopping MSN in the City of LA.
Raising pet limits has a twofold purpose for Rosendahl, first to give his breeder buddies a 66% increase in their business** and two, to defeat MSN by increasing the number of animals coming into the shelters. He knows only too well that the increases in impounds that have occured are a direct result of the poor economy, not because of MSN but he will distort the truth so it appears MSN is the reason just like Winograd does.
This is a conspiracy, one with underlying undertones of "money talks". Breeders open their pockets for this and Rosendahl has bigger plans for himself-- that requires money. The breeders would love to send Rosendahl to Sacramento. Rosendahl is selling out to his comrades, and selling out the City of LA for his own purposes.
Rosendahl is doing nothing more than trying to raise his campaign contributions from the underground economy known as dog breeding. People like Rosendahl care nothing for the shelter animals, he would rather see them impounded in record numbers, just means more business for his campaign contributors. Barnette is his ace in the hole, she is the key player in his conspiracy to destroy animal control in LA.
It is a truly evil person who cares so little for the shelters and the pets in those shelters. Rosendahl fits perfectly the definition of this evil.
** According to a study by Ralson Purina and the National Council on Pet Population, only 10-20% of animals are acquired from shelters/rescues and 15-30% are acquired from breeders/pet stores. The rest are acquired from backyard breeders and "oops" litters.
