This Country Needs To Wake Up And Help Our Animals In Need!

Messages Sent So Far
Dear Congress, I am doing this petition in defense of our animals that have been put into shelters across the United States.

There is a problem with our shelters in our country, (Mostly In The Southern States). These shelters are not allowing ample time for these animals to be rescued, or adopted. They are useing heart sticks, gas chambers, that have holes in the walls,and doesn't work the first time, as well as other means to have these animals die. Some animals are being abused in these shelters. I am asking you to make it a law, to extend the time these animals have before being killed, so they have a fair chance of being rescued, or adopted. There have been animals that have been wanted, but shelters are ignoring this and killing animals anyway.

The other concern is having inmates, threw work release programs, having the job of killing these animals in shelters. This is not a good rehabilitation method.
We are counting on you, our Congress, to change laws so these animals are protected.

We need to have more time to adopt animals at the shelters. Give the dogs to veterans . Train them for people who are disabled.disabled children or to the prisoners to train. I know there are programs in the prison system. .

I refuse to vote for anyone that doesnt support and defend animal welfare. The shelters in this country are sadly lacking in many ways. These animals are AMERICANS too!

TOO MANY DIE in shelters! Too many people are not aware that their shelters are KILL shelters. These animals need TIME to get rescued and/or adopted...due to "space" they say, 4-5 million cats and dogs are killed each year. That is wrong. Cities/states need to put more funds towards saving animals. Nat'l gov't needs to make some laws for all states that require much higher standards for shelters and for saving animals! Bigger/better shelters with HIRED help--not all volunteers. It is morally wrong, and that is if you are Christian or an atheist, or whatever.
