Publication/Event date: 2011-03-11 Publication name: La Mesa Patch URL for more info: http://lamesa.patch.com/articles/ex-owner-of-pet-works-in-costly-battle-with-grossmont-center?ncid=following_comment Summary: A month after Pet Works shut down at Grossmont Center in the wake of 22 months of puppy mill protests, the mall sued owner Richard Fuller for $800,000 and attorney fees to recover money owed on its 12-year lease. Then on March 1, alleging that Grossmont Center didn’t protect the pet store from the weekly protests, Fuller countersued for $400,000. Court documents in the civil case reveal that Fuller, an 82-year-old San Diego resident, blamed the protests led by Sydney Cicourel as causing loss of revenue and eventually the shutdown—even though Fuller said in mid-December that he was closing mainly thanks to the poor economy.

The Companion Animal Protection Society and animal rights activists protest Lancaster City Council Hearing tonight on ordinance to permit horse driven carriages.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – May 24, 2011 – Companion Animal Protection Society

Who: Companion Animal Protection Society (www.caps-web.org)
Contact: Carole Raphaelle Davis, West Coast Director, CAPS 310-990-5758

WHAT: West Coast office of CAPS and L.A. animal rights activists going to Lancaster City Council hearing to protest Ordinance No. 965, adopting Chapter 5.54 of the Lancaster ordinance to permit Horse-Drawn Vehicles. Animal rights activists will be joining CAPS to demand that this type of animal cruelty not be allowed in Lancaster.

WHEN: Tuesday, May 24th at 5 PM

WHERE: Lancaster City Hall
44933 N. Fern Avenue 
Lancaster CA 93534

“This is 2011, not 1911 and we do not use animals as beasts of burden in the civilized world. Has the City of Lancaster forgotten that we had an industrial revolution? London, Paris, Beijing, Toronto, Santa Fe, Key West and Las Vegas have all banned this cruel industry. This form of  so-called entertainment is exploitative and humane standards of care are impossible to enforce. The average working life of a carriage horse on the streets is under four years compared to a police horse whose working life is about 14 years. The animal protection community will not tolerate this form of abuse and Lancaster can expect an effective protest campaign in their city to put a stop to it if we have to.” ---Carole Raphaelle Davis, West coast Director, Companion Animal Protection Society
