• Tell Donna officials: support lifesaving animal shelter programming
    Sometimes when you want to create change in your community, it's hard to know where to begin. Together we can make sustainable changes that save lives while creating a framework of support for the pets of Donna and the people who care about them. Animals who end up at the animal shelter are part of this community and local officials need to know you care about the whole community- pets and people. They need to know that you prioritize the local animal shelter adopting policies that decrease the number of dogs and cats euthanized and that you support providing resources needed to do so. Some examples of resources include community cat programming (to ensure cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and returned to their homes), foster programming (to provide temporary housing to pets prior to finding their permanent homes), adoption outlets, and progressive field services and resources to ensure people have what they need to keep their pets. By advocating for these programs and continued collaboration with and support of your local animal shelter, you can be part of creating a healthier community for pets and people.

  • Stop Puppy Mill Sales in Our Community - Albany, NY
    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.

  • Saving Cats in Our Community - Clare County Michigan
    In order to create compassionate no-kill communities and achieve no-kill for cats nationwide, we need communities to support lifesaving programs like Trap-Neuter-Return [TNR]. The process is simple: cats are caught (often by volunteers), evaluated by veterinarians, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and returned to their original outdoor homes, unable to have kittens. These programs are also proven to be the most cost-effective, veterinarian-approved, and animal-friendly solution for controlling and reducing free-roaming cat populations.

  • Save No Time To Spare Animal Rescue & Sanctuary in Warrenton, MO!
    Without No Time To Spare Animal Rescue and Sanctuary thousands of dogs and cats will have no where to go in Warren County. This forces people to dump animals and leave them defenseless. This affects peoples lives in so many ways. Presently in the United States approximately 1,000 animals are euthanized daily because we don't have enough shelters. No Time To Spare has been making a difference not only rescuing animals, but also making sure they are spay/neutered, microchipped and vetted before they are adopted. Please don't stop their good work for the community. We need them!

Animals who end up at the animal shelter are part of this community and county officials need to know the people of Lubbock care about the whole community- pets and people.
