Oprah - Please support innovative shelter concepts to save millions of shelter-pets


Many millions of companion animals are needlessly killed in Animal "Shelters" throughout the USA.. there seems to be so many shelter-pets in need of help and homes.. rescues are struggling with lack of money, and to find fosters and adopters for the pets they pull from high kill shelters..
The ancient way of sheltering is not working for the animals but against them because it forgets the fact that dogs/ cats are social beings.. isolation and "prison- like" cages stresses them and causes fear and frustration.. and just this can cause them to be labelled "unadoptable" and killed..
Shelter Revolution is a new organization which has the solution for the present shelter crisis.. and that is the innovative "Adoption Center" model which focuses on the marketing of shelter-pets in a positive " cage-free " communal setting and making an animal shelter, a happy place to visit.. and the happy news is that killing is never an option..
Instead of chain link or glass panels between you and the dogs and cats, imagine sitting in a room filled with calm, happy animals. For most people this would be life changing. Caring customers rejoice in this happy place. Dogs and cats are adopted and fly out of the front door in such places..
Visitors become customers because they enjoyed this whole new experience up close and personal. Visitors return with family and friends. Word spreads quickly through a community. No more leaving feeling sad and worried.
For grumpy dogs/cats in-home re-hab is done by experienced fosters and then returned to the facility for adoption.
Please visit http://www.shelterrevolution.org/ for more details on this innovative concept which can nullify shelter-killing of innocent pets.
Oprah.. please fund and support Shelter Revolution in a initial project.. the success of this project will pave the way for a new humane, "cage-free" sheltering methodology and help end shelter-killing of millions of healthy dogs and cats in the USA..

Dear Oprah
Many millions of companion animals are needlessly killed in Animal "Shelters" throughout the USA.. there seems to be so many shelter-pets in need of help and homes.. rescues are struggling with lack of money, and to find fosters and adopters for the pets they pull from high kill shelters..
The ancient way of sheltering is not working for the animals but against them because it forgets the fact that dogs/ cats are social beings.. isolation and "prison- like" cages stresses them and causes fear and frustration.. and just this can cause them to be labelled "unadoptable" and killed..
Shelter Revolution is a new organization which has the solution for the present shelter crisis.. and that is the innovative "Adoption Center" model which focuses on the marketing of shelter-pets in a positive " cage-free " communal setting and making an animal shelter, a happy place to visit..
Instead of chain link or glass panels between you and the dogs and cats, imagine sitting in a room filled with calm, happy animals. For most people this would be life changing. Caring customers rejoice in this happy place. Dogs and cats are adopted and fly out of the front door in such places..
Visitors become customers because they enjoyed this whole new experience up close and personal. Visitors return with family and friends. Word spreads quickly through a community. No more leaving feeling sad and worried.. and the good news is killing is never an option.
For grumpy dogs/cats in-home re-hab is done by experienced fosters and then returned to the facility for adoption.
Please visit http://www.shelterrevolution.org/ for more details on this innovative concept which can nullify shelter-killing of innocent pets.
