Madison goosie started this petition to Representative Tim Burchett and

Living conditions in animal shelters are very poor and they don't get very much funding for the work that the staff and everyone else involved does. I want to try and get Tennessee to give more funding toward this great cause to try and better our state and community as a whole. 

Animal shelters such as Young-Williams, Humane Society Of The Tennessee Valley, and Happy Paws Animal Rescue all have to rely on the money they get from the community, but most people will buy a new pet from pet shops such as Petland Inc, Puppy Zone where they get their puppies from puppy mills. Most animals from puppy mills have very bad living conditions, inbred, abused, lonely, and not taken care of properly. Some of these animals also have medical deformities or genetic problems. These places will never tell you or really even know. In some cases, neither will the breeders. 

Places like Young-Williams are put in place to save these poor animals, to try to find them a loving home where they will be safe, but it can be hard sometimes due to the fact that they are so short on funds. I wish to help these places in my community and help these animals that can't defend themselves. I love animals and wish to dedicate my life to helping them, I want to make this world and state better by making sure our animals are safe.
