San Francisco, California: After 6 years of extremely controversial direction at San Francisco Animal Control, Rebecca Katz was shown the way out Friday July 25, 2014. To this day, no details regarding her dismissal and escorted from the building departure, but employees still on the inside are speculating.
Some say Captain Vicki Guldbech "bought her BA degree online. Like Carl Friedman set her up with that position of operational manager since it did not exist so she could make bank, but it required a BA degree."
This is mere speculation, however a simple search would reveal any inaccuracies. The source, still working at SFACC and fearful of retribution posed the thought, "in regards to the firing apparently Rebecca was giving Vicky Gulbech (sp.) ultimatums, not sure exactly what they were but apparently Vicky didn't like that and it's thought that she had something to do with getting Rebecca fired..."
This source and others including members of the public, citizens in San Francisco and the American Pit Bull Examiner have huge concerns regarding a replacement for Katz. During the interim, Eric Zuercher with a long history of high kill and poor temperament testing methods has been the cause for much euthanasia at the city shelter.
The city has a 20 year history of high kill and breed specific legislation as noted on Facebook page San Francisco Pit Bull Watcher. The page has documentation of recent 'mistakes' in which animals are being delegated two ID#'s in the computer to produce better numbers for the much published live release rates. American Pit Bull Examiner has been under attack for nearly two years from a hate group associated with the Rebecca Katz tenure at SFACC for publishing realistic records from the state rabies control reports which gravely conflict with those published by SFACC and the city of San Francisco.
A petition has been created to ask the city of San Francisco to hire a humane rescue oriented and solutions minded director and to replace the longtime high kill proponents Captain Vicki Guldbech and Media rep Deb Campbell who is responsible for using her highly paid position to publish false information to discredit a 501(c)(3) rescue organization. The hate group connected to Deb Campbell and ousted ex-director Katz has published these false accusations all over the internet including the rescue group's own Facebook pages and efforts to raise money for in house live animals.
This is a simple request. Fix San Francisco has published records and statistics of the failings at SFACC and is asking the city of San Francisco to please conduct a nationwide search to find a humane shelter director and begin after all these long years to clean up the bloodshed. The city has appointed the wrong directors for over 20 years. Carl Friedman put BSL into place and for years sought to 'kill all the pit bulls' impounded in the shelter. Katz used her position to manipulate those under her which has been discussed at length on social media. Her handling of the Charlie case has been a fiasco with the settlement stipulations violated which leaves the city open for a lawsuit and Katz giggling uncontrollably on the Monty Show radio program about killing pit bull puppies.
"With the very high kill rate and unfair breed specific kills, especially of owned dogs at this shelter ,makes me VERY glad to see her go. Let's bring in someone no-kill who has more compassion for animals! Her laughing on the radio about killing pit bull puppies was despicable."
Please sign the petition to create a pinnacle animal shelter in San Francisco which would and should be a model to follow for less affluent animal control facilities in other parts of the country and the world.
