End preventable euthanasia and create a community without homeless pets.

Together we can create a community without homeless pets and end the preventable euthanasia of over 15,000 animals a year here in Charlotte.  Luckily this is one of the few civic problems that is completely solvable.  More than 200 communities across the country – many with far resources than ours – found the solution.  It begins with the public declaration to make ours a “no kill” community backed by a concerted and balanced effort to deliver adequate spay and neuter services along with adoption of animals. 

 

Here are the steps we need to make Charlotte a “no kill” community:

 

MORE SPAY NEUTER – fewer animals being born leads to fewer without homes that are surrendered, or rounded up and eventually killed.

 

MORE ADOPTION – we need more avenues to adopt surrendered or found animals and residents need to be encouraged to adopt a rescued animal first.

 

ADVOCACY – we need to tell our elected leaders and government officials that we want our taxed dollars used not for exterminating healthy animals but for sustainable long-term and humane solutions for this challenge. 

 

SHOW YOU CARE – SIGN THE PETITION AND SPREAD THE WORD!!!

      Make Charlotte a 'no-kill' community, restore some humanity

      From Cary Bernstein, executive director of Spay Neuter Charlotte: In 2003, The Charlotte Observer published a groundbreaking series of investigative stories titled “Death at the Pound” that examined public policy in Charlotte-Mecklenburg and surrounding counties that led to the killing of more than 80,000 cats and dogs annually.

      its just the right thing to do. If one person on each street will just take the stray cats / dogs in for spay neuter rabies - you could have every neighbor under control.
