End preventable euthanasia and create a community without homeless pets.

This petition had 6,873 supporters

Together we can create a community without homeless pets and end the preventable euthanasia of over 15,000 animals a year here in Charlotte.  Luckily this is one of the few civic problems that is completely solvable.  More than 200 communities across the country – many with far resources than ours – found the solution.  It begins with the public declaration to make ours a “no kill” community backed by a concerted and balanced effort to deliver adequate spay and neuter services along with adoption of animals. 


Here are the steps we need to make Charlotte a “no kill” community:


MORE SPAY NEUTER – fewer animals being born leads to fewer without homes that are surrendered, or rounded up and eventually killed.


MORE ADOPTION – we need more avenues to adopt surrendered or found animals and residents need to be encouraged to adopt a rescued animal first.


ADVOCACY – we need to tell our elected leaders and government officials that we want our taxed dollars used not for exterminating healthy animals but for sustainable long-term and humane solutions for this challenge.
