Canine Happy Hour With Steve Stenger and Randy Grim July 25 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. in Brentwood, Missouri

You and your pooch are invited to a "Canine Happy Hour" with Steve Stenger and Randy Grim this Friday from 5:30-7pm at Hanley Park 610 Hanley Industrial Court, Brentwood, MO 63144. Stop by, show your support and visit with Steve, Randy and other animal lovers. Human and Dog treats will be provided. *Please note that the park requires all dogs to be on leashes* See you there!

Election Day is just two short weeks away! Please spread the word to all of your friends and family in St. Louis County to go to the polls Tuesday August 5th, pick a Democratic ballot, and vote for Steve Stenger for County Executive.
As a dog rescuer and member of the St. Louis County Council, Steve became deeply troubled while researching citizens' complaints regarding St. Louis County Animal Control. After media coverage and public outcry over the County's failure to meet minimum humane standards in its two old facilities resulted in the opening of a new state of the art new shelter 2011, some serious problems remain unaddressed.
Hundreds of animals languish in cages while outdoor runs, play and training areas are consistently empty. Very few animals are ever on the adoption floor or posted to pet adoption web sites, and the euthanasia rate has increased to 57% in the three years that new shelter has been open. When Councilman Stenger brought this issue up in a recent press conference, Charlie Dooley responded by defending the agency's current policies, saying that no "adoptable" animals were being euthanized by County Animal Control, only those that were "sick or a threat to public safety". These statements simply not credible, and they indicate that Dooley is comfortable with the County's high euthanasia rate, and that he believes no action needs to be taken to improve the situation.
Steve Stenger understands that St. Louis County can and must do better. Animals and tax-payers in St. Louis County deserve a County Executive who will work hard make things better rather than defend the status quo.
Animals can't vote, but YOU can. Vote for Steve Stenger, County Executive on August 5th!
