1. Please reconsider the upcoming balloon release and reconsider it’s effects on your surrounding natural habitats and the animals in them. Fish and birds easily mistake deflated balloons as food. Many choke and die from the results of ingestion. Do your part.

      The Acton Town Council received several emails this morning that raise concerns regarding a balloon release event sponsored by “Forever Pet Rescue”. I am not sure if your email addresses this balloon release event, but I assume it is. The Acton Town Council is unaware of the event and is not familiar with this rescue operation. A review of the “Foreverhome Pet Rescue” website does not provide any details and does not mention the event. Foreverhome Pet Rescue is not identified on the list of licensed Animal Facilities in Los Angeles County, so there is virtually no information to go on. I received a link to a facebook page that talks about the event; the facebook page indicates that the balloon release will be in Acton, but I did not see where. Acton is 100 square miles in size, so more specific information would be greatly appreciated. I would appreciate it if you could provide more information about the event so that the Acton Town Council can notify the responsible county agency regarding your concerns. We can move forward as soon as you are able to provide additional information regarding where this event will occur and who is implementing it.

      Thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

  6. Hello, like thousands of others I too am concerned about the May 7th planned balloon release, “Pink Balloons for Poli.” I don’t have more info but I certainly hope this event doesn’t take place. I’ve personally witnessed sea birds and sea turtles that died from balloon strangulation. Thank you for doing what you can to stop it.
