California animal shelters are killing pregnant dogs and puppies every day. It is completely unnecessary! Rescue groups are trying very hard to save these dogs, but the shelters are quick to kill. It is a cruel practice, and must stop. There is nothing humane about this. Here is just one example of the brutality going on in the California shelters.

KILLED! PREGNANT PRINCESS WAS KILLED!

OWNER DUMP! PREGNANT! WHY WOULD YOU TREAT A PREGNANT DOG THIS WAY???
RIP, PRINCESS - ID#A451216 (AVAIL NOW~MUST EXIT BY 8/8)
RESCUE ONLY ~ Kennel 16...Dumped with Blue ID # A451215. I am a 2 year old pit bull terrier mix. I have been at the shelter since Aug 1st. 2013.
For more information about this animal call San Bernardino City Animal control. At (909)384-1304.

Princess had everything worked out for her. Pledge money, and a rescue to take her, the puppies, and Blue, the daddy. The day the volunteer went to pull all the dogs, they were told another rescue stepped in and took Princess and the puppies but left Blue. So Blue was pulled. Later it was discovered that the shelter actually euthanized Princess. We are unsure of the puppies outcome. The shelter will not give any information. This was completely unnecessary. She had rescue.
It is cruel and inhumane to murder pregnant dogs and puppies. These are highly adoptable dogs. This practice needs to change. It is heartless, and we are better than this.

      This is beyond heartless, immoral and unacceptable Governor. As civilised humans we cannot allow this to happen and we are pleading for you to stop this heinous crimes against these dogs. California should be better than this! Murdering pregnant dogs and their babies is callous unconscionable and beyond all civilised people's values and as a person in this position we expect leadership here and to take steps to make this a heinous murdering of dogs to be illegal! You should be focusing on preventative proactive strategies by implementing restrictions on breeding, shut down all puppy and cat farms, make backyard breeding and selling of pets illegal, implement mandatory desexing of all pets sold and owned with fines for not abiding with these laws. There are so many practical easily implementable policies and laws which would address the root cause of over flowing shelters and those are the issues which must be addressed first. Killing of defenceless pregnant dogs and cats is easy but this is so immoral and soul destroying to anyone having to commit these cold blooded killing which is so unhealthy and will create a unhealthy community which no leader wants. Taxpayers are paying to kill innocent animals whilst unscrupulous breeders are pocking large sums of money in their filthy ruthless inherently cruel trades! The money spent to kill animals in shelters could be diverted to more humane programs such as policing and enforcing mandatory desexing and the other anti -breeding programs which is the humane way to handle this problem. Linking rates payment to a refundable deposit for spaying/neutering household pets is another incentive to people to desex their pets! In Australia all pets advertised and sold in some states must be microchipped and desexed meaning they can only be sold at a particular age! mandatory desexing is a more powerful way of being a more humane society which is more healthy and less destructive to animal shelters operations. Please consider these options and stop the killing of pregnant animals in your shelters. California the home of Hollywood should be above those senseless horrible killings.
