Grace's Law

      Portland, OR

It generally takes more than a few days to find a rescue, foster, adoptive family for shelter animals, especially dogs or cats with babies who need to be weaned before they can be put up for adoption. Grace and her puppies, (who looked to be no older than a couple weeks old) never had a chance, when only given three days to live. Grace looked to be a pure bred Catahoula Leopard Dog, who, with a chance at exposure, could have found a home for herself and her puppies. Please tell the State and Abilene City Officials how you feel about this senseless murder of a beautiful dog with puppies and that you demand they change the holding period to at least 10 days for dogs with puppies.

      I received a notice tonight from Change.org that the email address for Governor Rick Perry was undeliverable. Interesting. It's midnight, so I'll search for a new one tomorrow. Thanks again for your support friends!! And feel free to join me on Facebook! I love meeting new animal loving friends!

    5. The world loves its animals...

      I am deeply moved by the support of so many people from around the world. Grace was a beautiful girl with gorgeous puppies that did not deserve to die. When I called the shelter, the woman who told me they had been euthanized was so void of emotion. She acted as if I was inquiring about something on sale. I demanded to know why they had been killed. She snickered and said "Maam, they were euthanized, that's all I can tell you". She cared NOTHING for these precious babies. I was SO furious, I think I might have said something along the lines of "it's you who needs to be euthanized" and hung up on her.

      We need to build a nation of actual "shelters"... a sanctuary of love and protection for the voiceless. These places are no more than death machines. I'm sick of it. I'm done with it. And now I am going to do something about it. Please join me in the fight. Thanks for your support! Please share this!

      Animals deserve an opportunity to life just as much as humans!

      Because every life matters. These are beautiful creatures that deserve love, care and respect.

      Because I am an animal lover and volunteer. If I were given 3 days to live vs. 10 and I were sick, I am sure I would have a hard time finding a Dr. Think about it!
