Riverside County Code Re: Animals
So here it is...everything animal owners need to know regarding what animal control in Riverside County can do and what EXACTLY they can charge for fees in the way of impounded animals. I found this particularly interesting being as the first bill for our horses was just over $14,000! Page 3 of this document clearly states the fee of $5.00 (five dollars) per horse per day plus a $20.00 impound fee, I am aware that an equine group hauled the horses for next to nothing but the interesting figure was $8,000 in OVERTIME to these officers...im sorry but they arrived on the property in the early morning hours, therefore, it should not have taken them anny overtime to move the horses. I think they were "milking" the job, but then when you make sure the media gets thier interview I guess that would take up a lot of time when you could have been working? As animal owners it is your duty to know your rights not only to protect yourself, but your animals as well http://www.theanimalcouncil.com/files/Riverside_County_Animal_Ord_2006.pdf I also have this document saved, so if for some reason it comes up missing or the link is broken, email me and I will send it to you in a pdf file.
