I am so thankful for so much in my life, but today I want to tell you I am so very thankful for No Kill Shelters. I am so fortunate that I ended up in a No Kill place, as did all of my sisters. Seriously, how can those “other” places call themselves a shelter. Night after night I see kill lists for the next day and it just breaks my heart. I am thankful for No Kill and hope to do more to encourage those non-believers as to the merits of a No Kill world.
Just the other day I made a new friend. Her name is Diana, and among many things, she is the publisher of Critter Magazine of the Upstate of South Carolina. She is doing lots of good things and if you are on Facebook you can stop by and visit Diana on Facebook here. Also, if you are on Facebook, please Like the Critter Magazine of the Upstate. As I was reading the current edition I ran across an interesting note from the No Kill Advocacy Center and their upcoming campaign to make the USA No Kill. The campaign is call Just one Day.
“We are asking animal shelters across the USA to take a pledge not to kill any savable animals on June 11, 2012. For Just One Day, “Euthanasia Technicians” will put down their syringes and pick up cameras. Instead of injecting animals with lethal doses of sodium pentobarbital, they will photograph them and post them on the Internet, on Facebook, on twitter. On June 11, 2012, they will market their animals to the public, they will reach out to rescue groups, they will host adoption events with discounted rates, they will stay open for extended hours, and they will ask their communities to help them empty the shelter the good way.”
I encourage you to go visit their special website Just One Day, find out more about it, and see what you can do to help. There is tons of useful information there and you can see exactly who is participating from your state. And don’t forget to visit the No Kill Advocacy Center which is full of useful information.
I am thankful for No Kill, and I am thankful for those fighting the fight on behalf of all of us. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
