Over 4 million innocent animals - abused, lost, stray, stolen, injured etc. - get euthanized each year due to lack of funds and space in shelters. Dogs and cats who just want a loving forever home are left lonely and fearful and then helplessly put to death. If there was a law that limited the number of animals bred this would make a great difference and help animals in shelters have a better chance of finding a home. The negative connotation that "shelter pets" are not as good as full bred pets leaves these animals with no hope of finding homes. You can help the animals who cannot help themselves! Sign the petition and we will work towards ending Kill Shelters and possibly developing a National database to register and track all shelter dogs & cats, which could lead to more adoptions and help lost animals find their owners.
The Nevada Humane Society based in Reno, Nev., adopted a no-kill policy in 2006. In less than a year, cat adoptions nearly doubled, from 2,100 in 2006 to 3,745 in 2007. Dog adoptions increased 51 percent, from 2,439 to 3,707.
