Tony Cardenas on Environment



Created Animal Cruelty Task Force

Cardenas created Los Angeles' first Animal Cruelty Task Force which arrested dozens of callous animal abusers. One of the task force's first felony convictions put a known gang member away for three years for abusing a family pet.

Cardenas was the driving force behind the City's mandatory spay/neuter ordinance to reduce the number of stray and homeless dogs and cats on city streets and to decrease the number of animals euthanized in the city's shelters.
