• Stop the Sale of Puppies at Local Pet Stores
    More than 440 other cities, counties and states have already passed laws to stop the retail sale of pets sourced from commercial breeding facilities. It's time for our community to do the same. Puppy and kitten mills are in business to supply pet stores. The pets in these facilities often spend their entire lives in dirty, crowded cages for the sole purpose of producing as many animals as possible for the retail pet trade. Pet stores that obtain animals from these facilities are not an asset to our community. These facilities also produce puppies that are often sick, causing unsuspecting consumers to have to care for a new pet in need of expensive veterinary treatment. Milled puppies can also spread campylobacter, a dangerous, drug-resistant bacteria that is contagious to humans. In the past several years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) traced a multi-state outbreak of Campylobacter to pet store puppies. This is a public health risk in a time where public health should be a top priority. A humane pet sales ordinance will not prevent pet stores from doing business, but it will reduce the burden on our shelters and rescue groups by increasing pet adoptions. It will also benefit our local ethical hobby breeders by allowing them to provide responsibly bred pets directly to those who cannot find what they are looking for through adoption. Please consider protecting pets and consumers by passing a humane pet sales ordinance for our community.

  • Make Rapides Parish a Safe, Humane Community
    In 2021, the Louisiana state legislature passed two humane initiative resolutions [SR 125 and HR 120]. Resolutions are an important way for local government to declare a stance on a particular issue. Through a humane animal resolution, elected officials make a clear statement that they want their community to work towards ending killing in shelters. This helps draw a line in the sand to drive toward the goal of saving the lives of dogs and cats.  Now it is time for local parishes to commit their support for pet lifesaving by passing a humane resolution.

  • Support Safe, Humane Communities for People and Pets in Luna County
    Earlier this year, the New Mexico state legislature passed a humane initiative memorial [HM024]. Memorials (or resolutions) are a way for the state legislature to express legislative desire through declaration, frequently addressed to other governmental bodies, such as local government. A humane resolution makes the statement that elected officials want to see local municipal agencies and animal shelter managers work toward ending killing in shelters. They help to draw a line in the sand, and get everyone on the same page, driving toward the goal of saving the lives of dogs and cats.  Now it’s time for local communities to commit their support for lifesaving by passing a humane resolution.
