Governor Bill Haslam: Stop the killing of ALL animals in Memphis Shelter - Let it become the new No-Kill shelter

Memphis Animal Shelter has killed 77% of the homeless animals that came in through its doors this year 2012... this is simply wrong and is not acceptable in civilised society...this situation shows, in fact, abject failure of the Shelter Director to  find ways that work for the animals in their care.. and this is causing severe emotional distress to the  general public who love animals in this city and elsewhere..

MAS can be called a " death camp " instead of a "shelter" with such statistics..

The "overpopulation of pets" myth has fallen apart in many communities who are using the No Kill Equation to bring happiness to the innocent beings by refusing to kill animals as a solution to the situation in the Shelter...This No Kill Equation works and companion pets can find love and homes as shown by many morally awake communities ...  

This mass killing of homeless pets has gone on for too long and will not be tolerated by the morally awake public anymore... now is the time where all animal lovers will together do something for the beloved animals, to see that such cruelty and killing of helpless, innocent beings  ends... and a new era of love and happiness begins for our pets...

We petition  Governor Haslam to look into the charges against MAS and help in the following aspects :

formulate anti-cruelty laws for companion animals

fire all corrupt, brutal staff and the present Shelter Director who has no conscience and views a atrocious 77% kill rate as acceptable ...

hire a new no-kill Shelter Director and new pro-animal and life-saving staff

Put Memphis on the world map as a new no-kill Shelter with a guarantee of a home for every homeless animal...

This is possible NOW ...

The situation at MAS is intolerable for the companion animals... Let the killing of homeless beings STOP ... Let the innocent animals be given back their rights to exist and find happy homes.
