Family pets are being needlessly shot at epidemic proportions by law enforcement across the nation. Because these are happening in different states the enormousness of this problem is not being realized. We want national training and accountability for using non-lethal force with our family members. We want the nation as a whole to be aware of this issue. We would be most appreciative of your help.
