No Kill Advocacy Center
Rescue groups are a shelter’s best friend. An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning and killing, and improves a community’s rate of lifesaving. But too many shelters refuse to work with rescue groups, choosing to kill the animals instead. The No Kill Advocacy Center is on a mission to make that illegal and we need your help.
Here’s model rescue rights legislation: http://bit.ly/SJz15v
Here’s the proof that it works: http://bit.ly/U9Hcdj
Here’s how you get legislation introduced and passed: http://bit.ly/U4dsMS
And here’s why you should: In New York, 71% of rescue groups have been turned away from shelters and those shelters then killed the very animals the groups offered to save. In Florida, 63% reported similar results. Rescue groups in other states report similar experiences. By contrast, when California passed rescue rights legislation, the number of animals transferred rather than killed increased 370%: from 12,526 per year to 58,939. Over 46,000 animals are being saved per year at no cost to taxpayers. In fact, it brings in revenue: http://bit.ly/T9OyAi.
Most state legislatures reconvene in January, so now is the time to reach out to your local legislators and lay the groundwork. The No Kill revolution starts with YOU!
