More Dog Walks, Volunteer Mediation: Koretz Calls For LA Animal Services Overhaul | app

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Koretz on Friday called for sweeping changes to the city’s Department of Animal Services, including regular dog walks, better management of sick animals who face the euthanasia and a mediation process for volunteers.

Koretz, a candidate for city comptroller, released a 46-page report that he called a “road map” of recommendations to help the thousands of dogs, cats and other animals that pass through the city’s six shelters each year.
