1000 Flowers for the Planet - #564 Support No-Kill Animal Shelters
People have overpopulated the country with dogs and cats by over-breeding and irresponsible pet ownership. Shelters are full of poor animals that have been abandoned, through no fault of their own. Some of these shelters will euthanize the animals once they have been held for a predetermined length of time. We need more responsible pet ownership and better controls on pet numbers to stop this happening. There are shelters where the people who run them care so much about the animals they refuse to euthanize them. They put great effort into finding homes for these pets and to look after as many as possible in the meantime. They need to be supported, both financially and by finding your next pet at just such a no-kill animal shelter. It’s time to be responsible when it comes to pet ownership and unwanted animals by ensuring you de-sex your cat or dog, encourage others to do the same, and buy your new pet from a no-kill animal shelter as your first choice. Fight against animal cruelty.
