Now is your chance to take your concerns directly to these champions of shelter killing and to educate the editorial board about how dangerous and deadly their legislation is.
While the No Kill movement is having unparalleled success and with No Kill communities now dotting the American landscape—in California, Nevada, Michigan, Kentucky, New York, Texas, Virginia, and elsewhere—PETA continues to be little more than a slaughterhouse.
March is the time of year when PETA releases its annual killing statistics to the Commonwealth of Virginia, and we are made aware of how many animals the prior year fell victim to the malicious, relentless bloodlust of PETA employees.
In your own words, in your own way, please let her know how disappointed you are. Ask her to step in and protect the animals she is pledged to protect. Let her know that the fate of thousands of animals are in her hands and she must finally start living up to her responsibilities as ASPCA Board Chair.
An ASPCA sponsored quick kill bill in NYS eliminates the holding period for scared cats, feral cats, shy dogs, and traumatized animals by granting shelters the legal authority to kill animals for being in “psychological pain” immediately on intake. They could be killed within a minute of arrival. With this bill, the ASPCA is trying to not only stop rescue access, but to erode what few protections animals in shelters already have.
