Molly Brunette started this petition to Senator Jeff Merkley

My name is Molly and I am a 12 year old who loves animals. I hope that one day all animals can live the happy healthy lives they deserve. Right now around 4 million shelter animals are euthanized each year only because the shelters don't have enough space for them. As the dogs hold out their paws to the shelter staff they feel a pinch and a needle goes into their veins and as they try to make friends they are betrayed. With a little time and work almost all of these dogs could find loving forever homes. Part of this problem is caused by breeders who don't know what they are doing. They will sell their dogs to people who don't plan on spaying and neutering and the dogs will end up being put down. If you help me save the lives of countless animals we can make it illegal to breed dogs without a permit. On top of this cats are facing the same problem, a cat in a shelter just wanting somewhere to call home is betrayed. We can lower the numbers of ALL animals big and small put down by making less come into a shelter in the first place. Just imagine how hard these poor animals lives are. The shelter workers also have it hard. They are forced to kill these animals or they will lose their job, income, and the chance to save an animals life. I truly think that if unqualified breeders stopped breeding there dogs we could reduce the amount of animals put down in shelters each year.
