Davie, Fl, July 31, 2009: In response to the recent rash of slaughtering horses for their meat in both Miami-Dade County and Miramar, the Town of Davie’s Mayor, Judy Paul is taking action by organizing a Community Barn Watch Program.
All Equine owners alarmed by the senseless slaughtering of horses are encouraged to attend the meeting to kick off the “Community Barn Watch Program.”
The meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at 6 p.m., at the Davie Town Hall located at 6591 Orange Drive. Join concerned residents to discuss proactive ways to protect our precious pets and livestock.
The Community Barn Watch Program encourages horse owners as well as concerned citizens to keep a watchful eye and immediately report suspicious persons or activity to law enforcement.
Program participants will receive a “Community Barn Watch” sign to post in their neighborhood. The signs will send a strong message to “animal abusers” that Davie is a united community that is watching and ready to take action against animal abusers.
Join Mayor Judy Paul and the Davie Town Council, as well as members of the Florida Professional Rodeo Association, Davie Rodeo Association, the South Florida Trail Riders, Broward Farm Bureau, and the Davie Police Department to discuss community ideas, concerns, and solutions.
