8-10 Million Dogs, Puppies, Cats, and Kittens, are being killed yearly at shelters across the country. They are the strays, abandoned, throw aways, overbred, and owner relinquished. They are hit and killed by cars, used as "bait" for pit bull fighters, sold to disreputable research laboratories for inhumane testing, and others, are being horribly abused by people. This bill could help shut down the backyard puppy mill breeders and the inhumane, filthy concentration camp puppy mills across the country. Our beloved companion animals have the right to live and be treated humanely. Spay and neuter costs are affordable or often free, to almost anyone. Tragically for the animals, it's the uninformed and uncaring people who still refuse to spay and neuter, who are causing this overpopulation to be killed by heartsticks, gas chambers, and some, by the improper use of injections. These millions of healthy, loving, highly adoptable dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens, are being killed for one reason only; they have no homes. It's up to all of us who love them, to be their voices for survival.
