Petition Closed

The Fresno CCSPCA is not allowing rescues to save animals from death row until they sign a contract that greatly reduces their rights and inhibits their ability to save animals in many ways. Now, animals there are projected to be facing a 90% kill rate and their only hope for survival is adoption. The killing has to stop. It's time the CCSPCA put animals first! Take action now. Their only voice is yours!

Make the Central California SPCA a No-Kill Shelter

Mrs. Van Kirk,

I am writing to make you aware of my support for the Central California SPCA becoming a no kill shelter. Using up to date programs has consistently lowered the kill rate by 50% or more the first year alone, and increased adoption rates to 85% or better! It has been done at shelters across the country, in urban or rural settings, in rich or poor communities. It does not take more money, in fact some shelters have found it saves money, while increasing volunteer rates and improving the shelter's public image. It can be done here in Fresno.

I find the current state of the shelter unacceptable. The same old excuse of "too many animals, not enough homes" will not satisfy me any longer. The CCSPCA has one of the worst kill rates in the state and in the nation. New management practices is the answer to this problem.

I urge you to commit to saving more lives and to spend our tax dollars responsibly. All over the world we are watching you. Please do the right thing.

Sincerely,
