The City of West Hollywood City Council directed staff and the Public Facilities Commission to evaluate the community’s interest in, and feasibility of, establishing a tribute/memorial in honor of community members’ companion animals (pets) that have passed away. An outreach plan has been developed to collect public input on a possible pet memorial. It includes a survey as well as two virtual outreach meetings to be scheduled in Summer 2021. Outreach meetings will be posted on the City calendar at www.weho.org/calendar.

The City of West Hollywood has a history of supporting measures that promote the protection of animal rights. The City is often recognized as one of the most animal-friendly and pet-friendly municipalities in the nation. The entire city council currently have pet companions. The City continues to support legislation and policies to promote animal welfare and address the needs of individuals with companion and service animals in West Hollywood.

The survey is easy to fill out. It only asks some simple questions:

1. Would you like to see some form of a tribute to pets at a City Park?
*if so, which City Park would you prefer?
2. Do you currently have a companion pet?
*If you answered no: Have you had a companion pet in the past?
3. How often do you visit a City of West Hollywood Park?

4. If the City were to place some type of tribute to pets at a City Park what would you prefer?
5. Please feel free to provide any additional ideas or thoughts you

6. How did you hear about this survey?

With all do respect, who comes up with is stuff? I love my dog, but really? The city has a homeless crisis, there’s still the ramifications of COVID unemployment, past due rents (both commercial and non-commercial), an unfinished park, a housing crisis as Weho has become unattainable for the middle class worker to live here and so much more.
Can the council, please govern and stop with the high school ASB antics?
Ready.
