Make Chicago Animal Care and Control a NO-KILL shelter

This year, three to four million dogs and cats will be killed in shelters. Most or all of these animals deserve to be placed into loving homes because they deserve a chance for life.

But there is hope.

The "no-kill" shelter movement is gaining momentum in America; it is a revolution.  The goal of the movement is to save the lives of healthy and treatable dogs and cats, reserving euthanasia only for animals that cannot be rehabilitated. The movement began in San Francisco in 1989 and has had a far-reaching impact on the entire animal welfare movement.

Chicago Animal Care and Control has made substantial progress in reducing the number of animals euthanized each year. With continued public pressure, and support of their programs, Chicago ACC has the capacity to become a no-kill shelter.

      The USA should be a NO KILL COUNTRY. How can Americans claim to be world leaders if they kill hundreds of thousands of animals every day!!
