Do you have a new Mayor? New members of the City Council or County Commission? If you do not live in a No Kill community, tell them you want a shelter that reflects, rather than thwarts your values. Send them the following email and attachments:
Dear Mayor and Members of the City Council,
Today, there are 80 No Kill communities across the country representing over 200 cities and towns across America; in Kentucky, Virginia, Indiana, Utah, California, New York, Texas, and elsewhere. Why not ours? We are a community of animal lovers, and we and the animals we love deserve better. We deserve a shelter that reflects our values.
There is a solution to shelter killing and it is not difficult, expensive nor beyond practical means to achieve. As the enclosed documents demonstrate, No Kill is a humane, sustainable, cost-effective model that works hand in hand with public health and safety, while fulfilling a fiscal responsibility to taxpayers.
