Response from City of South San Francisco
The following is offered in response to the 2000-2001 San Mateo County Civil Grand Jury Final Report.
Pet Overpopulation Program
The City of South San Francisco currently has not adopted the San Mateo County Pet Overpopulation Program Ordinance in its entirety.
While the City of South San Francisco has its own ordinance covering animal control, we agree with the mission of the POP, which is to promote public safety, protect pets from disease, and encourage responsible pet ownership. We feel that by promoting a positive awareness campaign of the POP, it would be much easier for those cities that have not adopted the program to further support the benefits of the program and recommend it to the community and pet owners.
Once a campaign has been successfully initiated by the Peninsula Humane Society, South San Francisco, along with other communities, may be willing to support this program .
