Dafna Knowles was an officer at Broward Animal Care.
She was let go for not being able to kill dogs and cats that are not terminally ill. For years she has been a top officer, on the streets, recognizing and preventing animal cruelty, and helping dog owners, and helping the rescue community.
She was recently transferred to "kennels" where her job is cleaning and her experience is wasted.
More importantly, her new position , requires euthanizing , or killing, healthy animals. Due to her depression & anxiety, Dafna cannot kill.
As a result, she was separated from her employment with animal care when the easy solution was to put her back in the field where she belongs where only the euthanasia of suffering animals is necessary.
There is not a person involved in rescue , that has not been helped by Dafna.


Dafna has hired an attorney to help her fight against Broward County Animal Care and hopefully prevent this from happening in the future. All animals deserve the best and Broward County doesn't seem to care for whats best.


Please help by donating towards the fight against Broward County Animal Care & spread the word that Animal Care, which claims to be going , no kill, has let go an officer , for not being able to kill.

Dafna has come to our hospital advocating for the treatment of her animals numerous times. I have often thought, "I wish I was half the person she is" - her devotion to our animal compaions is way above and beyond the call of duty...saving the lives of animals is a cellular thing for her...it's not a job. Our world is a nicer place because of Dafna ... our animal companions need her with them to fight for their right....

Dafna is right. As long as we can find people that are fine with getting paid to do senseless killing, nothing will get better. The focus has to be on forcing people to be responsible about spaying/neutering their pets. By fining people who don't (like in other states) there will be more money to establish more ways to do the right thing (spay/neuter grants, education, adoption..) for these animals & most of all less of these unwanted animals! Other states are already there.
