Grace's Law

It generally takes more than a few days to find a rescue, foster, adoptive family for shelter animals, especially dogs or cats with babies who need to be weaned before they can be put up for adoption. Grace and her puppies, (who looked to be no older than a couple weeks old) never had a chance, when only given three days to live. Grace looked to be a pure bred Catahoula Leopard Dog, who, with a chance at exposure, could have found a home for herself and her puppies. Please tell the State and Abilene City Officials how you feel about this senseless murder of a beautiful dog with puppies and that you demand they change the holding period to at least 10 days for dogs with puppies.


Letter to
Governor Rick Perry
Mayor of Abilene Texas Norm Archibald
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Texas Governor Rick Perry and Abilene Mayor Norm Archibald.

----------------
Extend the holding period of nursing dogs in Texas shelters.

Dear Governor Perry and Mayor Archibald,

It generally takes more than a few days to find a rescue, foster or adoptive family for shelter animals, especially dogs or cats with babies who need to be weaned before they can be put up for adoption. Grace and her puppies, (who looked to be no older than a couple weeks old) never had a chance, when only given three days to live by the Abilene shelter. On her third day, she had an organization step up to rescue her and her pups, only to be told that all of them had just been euthanized.

Grace and her puppies looked to be pure bred Catahoula Leopard Dogs, who, with public exposure, could have had a chance at finding a home. We are demanding that legislation be adopted which will increase all Texas animal shelter's holding periods to at least 10 days for dogs with puppies.

Sincerely,
