Petition to Carlos A. Gimenez
Make Miami Dade Animal Shelter a no kill shelter
As per MDAS they say that they are a no-kill shelter. But for years since I have been following them they are constantly killing dogs and even more cats and kittens. This needs to stop. They need to start giving the animals that enter into the shelter more time to get adopted or rescued by a reputable rescue organization. Please step up and help me make them turn into a no-kill shelter.
Petition to San Diego County Board of Supervisors
Stop the Attempt at Outsourcing SD County Animal Services
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors is in the process of deciding whether to outsource the San Diego Department of Animal Services (SDDAS) in an attempt to make caring for our most vulnerable population "faster and cheaper” for taxpayers but at a greater cost to public safety and animal welfare.The San Diego Rescue Coalition (a group of San Diego 501c3 rescues that take in a substantial percentage of County animals) stands behind maintaining current SDDAS services, as the decades of partnerships we have built are irreplaceable. In order to best help the thousands of cats and dogs that rescues annually take in from San Diego County shelters, we must strengthen the robust framework we have already created. With a recent change in SDDAS leadership, we are excited to collaborate even more effectively.Further, we believe County citizens are best served by the impeccable work of our Animal Control Officers. Their experience in the field, both with difficult-to-handle animals of all kinds as well as complex law enforcement and legal regulations, is impossible to replicate. Animal control and services comprise 0.3% of the annual county budget. An attempt to save a proportionally minuscule amount of money on the backs of our pets, wildlife, and devoted public employees is unacceptable. Please let the County Board of Supervisors know that as their constituents, we stand with our animals and with SDDAS, who currently provide exceptional animal care and control services, and have one of the highest save rates of animal shelters in the country.

INNOCENT DOG WILL BE UNFAIRLY EUTHANIZED BY A RESCUE!
HELP! DOG WILL BE UNFAIRLY EUTHANIZED AT THE HANDS OF A SO CALLED "RESCUE" This is Sadie. She was consigned to The Halfway House Animal Rescue by someone who found her living in a dirt pit, tied to a tree, to help her find a good home. She stayed with finder for a few weeks before being handed over to a rescue. Sadie is noted to be a very sweet & playful girl. During her short 9 day stay with Halfway House foster, she wasnt given proper time to decompress nor was proper protocal taken. It was stated that Sadie bit her new foster's boyfriend's hand while he was trying to remove something from her mouth. This incident was not reported until 4 days later. Now Halfway House Rescue plans to have her euthanized immediately after her 10 day bite quarantine is up. The surrenderer who initially kept Sadie for a few weeks before is devastated as she states Sadie never showed signs of aggression prior. Surrenderer has offered to take Sadie back & work with her at no liability of the rescue. Halfway house will not budge & is set on killing Sadie! The rescue is fighting as hard as they can to have her euthanized. We don't know what this dog went through prior to being rescued. She had a hard life before being found tied to a tree, yet luck still isnt on her side. It is very likely she could have been abused & after all she has been through, she doesn't deserve this horrific fate! A RESCUE is supposed to HELP these innocent & scared animals. A rescue UNDERSTANDS animals and are LOVING & COMPASSIONATE. They have had this dog for a very short period of time and won't even give her a fair chance! BE THE VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS - DEMAND JUSTICE FOE SADIE!

TELL the City TO REOPEN Larry Rice's St. Louis City HOMELESS SHELTER.
THIS NEW LIFE EVANGELISTIC CENTER (NLEC) IS A "WALK-IN" HOMELESS SHELTER THAT HAS BEEN OPERATING FOR 45+ YEARS BY REV. LARRY RICE. THE NLEC PROVIDES SHELTER TO 200 HOMELESS PEOPLE EACH NIGHT AND TO 50 HOMELESS PEOPLE THAT PERMANENTLY RESIDE THERE PARTICIPATING IN RICE'S "INTEGRATED LEADERSHIP PROGRAM" TO RE-ENTER SOCIETY. REV. RICE PROVIDES MANY SERVICES INCLUDING A DAYCARE CENTER TO THOSE MOTHERS WITH CHILDREN. UNFORTUNATELY, THE CITY OF DOWNTOWN ST. LOUIS CLOSED THE SHELTER PERMANENTLY ON APRIL 2, 2017 STATING RICE IS OPERATING WITHOUT AN OCCUPANCY PERMIT. IT BOILS DOWN TO THIS. THEY ARE CRIMINALIZING THE HOMELESS AND TRYING TO RUN THE HOMELESS OUT OF THE CITY WHICH WILL NOT OCCUR. IF THE SHELTER CLOSES IT WILL FORCE 250 HOMELESS TO SLEEP ON THE STREETS IN THE FRIGID AND THE EXCESSIVE HEAT WEATHER. IT'S A DEATH SENTENCE. THIS HOMELESS SHELTER HAS TAKEN CARE OF OUR FORGOTTEN...THE HOMELESS. CLOSING DOWN REV. RICE'S HOMELESS SHELTER HAS BEEN DEVASTING TO THE HOMELESS COMMUNITY, THE HOMELESS ADVOCACY GROUPS, THE ALREADY FULL SHELTERS AND THE ADDITIONAL EXPENSE TO THE CITY ITSELF. THE USE OF THE ST. LOUIS CITY POLICE OFFICERS TO ADDRESS THE CONSEQUENCES OF ELECTED OFFICIALS' POLICIES AND ACTIONS HAS BEEN CRITICIZED BY MANY-- INCLUDING OFFICERS THEMSELVES AS CONTRIBUTING TO THE GROWING TENSION BETWEEN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE RESIDENTS THEY ARE SWORN TO "PROTECT AND SERVE." REV. RICE STATES THAT HE IS SIMPLY DOING WHAT GOD HAS CALLED HIM TO DO. HE CONTINUES BY STATING THAT IT IS REALLY SICK THAT JUST BECAUSE HIGH RISE CONDOMINIUMS ARE GOING UP AND THEY DONT WANT THE HOMELESS AROUND. SIGN THIS PETITION TO TELL THE CITY TO REOPEN THE NEW LIFE EVANGELISTIC CENTER HOMELESS SHELTER. ESPECIALLY SINCE RICE IS COMPLYING WITH CITY TO MAKE THE REPAIRS BRINGING THE BUILDING UP TO CODE. TELL THE CITY TO REOPEN REV RICE'S NLEC HOMELESS SHELTER BECAUSE WE NEED SHELTERS TO PROVIDE DESPERATE HELP TO THOSE IN NEED.
Petition to Board of Directors of the Silver City Gospel Mission
Tell the Silver City Gospel Mission to open the Emergency Winter Shelter for the Homeless
There are many homeless folks in Grant County, NM and they are going to suffer greatly or even die if they don't get shelter for the winter. It sickens and infuriates me that I am forced to do this again this year. The Board of Directors of the Silver City Gospel Mission is once again refusing to open their usual winter shelter. If you remember last year, they initially refused to, and then changed their minds after facing a huge amount of public pressure to do so. Their excuse this time is that last year there were items stolen by people who were paid to staff the shelter. This is an outright lie, however. Firstly, the shelter was run purely by volunteers, so there were no paid workers. Also, there were no reports of any stolen items by anyone at the time. Their other reason for not opening the shelter is that there was damage to the building. The only damage reported, however, was to plumbing that was already in bad shape. Just like last year, the Board of Directors has shown no empathy, and this year they have escalated their despicable behavior by telling boldfaced lies. I want to make sure I note a few things. First, I have a great appreciation for the wonderful things that the Mission does. Secondly, I have a huge respect for the staff at the Mission, and know that most, if not all, of them want the shelter to open this year. Finally, I want it to be noted that I am not judging the Board members as people, but am once again appalled by their decision. Truly, all we are asking the Mission to follow through with is what they say their vision is. On their website it states, "Our vision is that no one will be hungry or cold in the Silver City area!" To be a good person takes more than just reading the Bible and showing up to church-- surely the Mission Board Members know that in their heart of hearts. We are asking people to let the Mission know that the homeless must be sheltered during the winter to avoid extreme suffering and possible death. This has to be taken care of immediately, and the Mission is the only place that has the capability to do so (in terms of insurance, proper shelter, and funding). Please join us in asking them to reconsider their decision, and to make the compassionate choice to open the shelter. We also encourage you to call or email the Mission Executive Director, Amy Wagner, to express your thoughts on this.(575) email@example.com>
Petition to US congress and Senate
BAN THE USE OF THE WORD FERAL CAT FROM ANIMAL LAWS AND POLICIES-IT'S A LIE
The word "FERAL CAT" is a "POLITICAL LIE"-It is a political word falsely made up so that innocent cats can be killed and disposed of rather than money spent to keep them alive in sanctuaries.Millions of people have them living in their homes right now.And they are no different from any other cat.I am the author of NO SUCH THING AS A FERAL CAT-because all cats can be tamed and given homes.It is not only political tax funded agencies who kill these cats with this word-ANIMAL ADVOCATE GROUPS and Kill Shelters publish the "untameable feral cat lie" that kills as many cats as cat abusers/killers.THIS LIE has become the reasoning for killing these innocent cats in every Animal Cruelty Law,city/county,state or federal policy,and every Kill Shelter in America.And why law enforcement does not protect these cats from abuse and torture.None of the authorities who classify these cats then euthanize them have any training or expertise that could determine a cats manner once they feel safe in someone's care.They simply call them feral and kill them.Many of you have had your missing house cat killed by them in their haste to dispose of them.And the Animal Advocate Groups you donate to to save them back them up with the false information they publish on their web sites.Every cat is the same once they are in a safe place.While millions get spent reforming fighting dogs,it only cost 10 cents a day for these cats to be rehabilitated in a sanctuary-what hypocrisy!THAT IS WHY I AM CALLING ON YOU TO BAN THIS WORD AND SAVE THESE CATS.
