Make All Shelters a "No Kill" Shelter.

I'm proposing for a creation of a new law a bill stopping euthanasia on all Healthy Adoptable Animals in Shelters across the States.
They are euthanizing them daily. Pit Bulls are ALWAYS the first breed to be killed in Shelters, this needs to stop once and for all. We need to get all these Shelters to become a "No Kill Shelter" unless the animals are suffering and or terminally ill. However sadly they have been primary focusing on killing the breed Pit Bulls because of their breed when you ask about adoptions they are misplaced or have already been murdered, this is of all Breeds too.
Many Shelters are killing them after just 24 to 48 hours after intake.
A civilized society does not accept or endorse these " Mass Killings" that is presently taking place across our nation, it's become an epidemic.
Shelters must begin to work with volunteers in an effort to reduce the euthanizing of animals.
They need to give us all more time to help finding homes then 24 hours, when they are placed on the infamous "kill list".
This needs to be shared and signed so we can reach others with the same goals for these loving animals that cannot fight for themselves as they lay sad confused and lonely on that cold dreadful floor in that shelter cage, you know they don't understand why their owner just turned their backs on them and walked away and left them there, I'm sure they waited all day for them to come back and get them to take them home, such a cowardly act these pathetic people are who can do this and sleep at night with a clear conscious, how could they just leave them behind without going back having doubts.
They lack empathy and real love that's how these horrible owners just walk away while their Dog or Cat gets dragged away in a black plastic garbage bag, how do I know? I saw the dreadful inconceivable pictures on Twitter it was so frightening, cold blooded cruelty at its worst like a fictional horror movie, I literally had to look several times to confirm what the heck I just saw, 7 that's right "seven" black garbage bags all full of dead animals in front of each cage with the door open like they were trash being taken out to the garbage bin the cold plastic bags are the last thing these precious babies get to have their bodies wrapped in?! Those pictures haunt me, but who am I to wish I never saw the pictures when they are the ones who had to endure the painful end. I won't turn a blind eye to their sacrifices that mankind imposed onto them.
These animals know one thing that's a given and that's true unconditional love anything different was taught by a bad owner, I know for I've raised this breed for years and Pit Bulls are loving compassionate companions. I understand there are attacks where Dogs bite a human, however there are way more human on human violence than there is Dog on human violence, this applies to any breed. But we all know which one makes the 6 o'clock news don't we now.
We the People want them held accountable for euthanizing of healthy animals and a stop to it once and for all.
The majority are killed over space and put on a "kill list" each day and night before social media activist even have time to find help!
I tried to find the up to date stats but The National euthanasia statistics are difficult to pinpoint because animal care and control agencies are not required to keep statistics on the number of animals euthanized. Why many shelters do not have to keep up the value of statistics bothers me, that's giving them free reign to euthanize more and more without trying to find them homes and or be held accountable for many Dogs killed in error, it's the easiest answer to them sad but true! With no national reporting structure existing to make compiling national statistics on these figures possible we need to ensure a bill is passed where they have to abide.
Unfortunately, the most recent statistics published by the National Council online are from 1997, and only 1,000 shelters replied to the survey at that time. Using the National Council's numbers from 1997 and estimating the number of operating shelters in the United States to be 3,500 (the exact number of animal shelters operating in the United States does not exist), these estimates were made:
It stated of the 1,000 shelters that replied to the National Council's survey, 4.3 million animals were handled.
In 1997, roughly 64 percent of the total number of animals that entered shelters were euthanized -- approximately 2.7 million animals in just these 1,000 shelters. These animals may have been euthanized due to overcrowding and a most recent cause they use to kill is "kennel cough" when that is so treatable.
56 percent of dogs and 71 percent of cats that enter animal shelters are euthanized. More cats are euthanized than dogs because they are more likely to enter a shelter without any owner identification.
Only 15.8 percent of dogs and 2 percent of cats that enter animal shelters are reunited with their owners.
25 percent of dogs and 24 percent of cats that enter animal shelters are adopted.
It is estimated that approximately 3.7 million animals were euthanized in the nation’s shelters in 2008.
We need to stop this friends.
This will not change until animal advocates voice their feelings to their legislators and let them know they will be held accountable in the voting booth." After all; we are their constituents!
They cannot fight for themselves, we have to be their voice. Take a stance with me today to stop the slaughtering of healthy Dogs and Cats of all Breeds.
