Stop kill shelters in Toronto.

This petition had 5,853 supporters

Thousands of animals brought into shelters in Toronto are “euthanized.” A term that claims mercy so misused in many of these cases. Although some of the animals they put down are sick and close to death, many are simply a burden to the shelter. Some have a 72 hour window where animals can be adopted before putting them down. Just three days. Some shelters that do not have the drugs to put down the animals use gas chambers. This act is seen as unhumane to even the most sensitized person. If a law is place banning kill shelters animals would have a better chance at living a humane life. I suffer from mental health disorders and on my bad days the only thing that seems to soothe me is my rescue beagle Mabel. She has saved me. I don’t know how I would be able to get out of bed without the unsaid support she gives. If she had been euthanized I don’t know where I would be right now. This is important to millions of people across the country who are just as passionate about animal rights as I am. Help make a difference.
