Today is June 11. Just another day? Hardly. Eleven years ago, the animal sheltering movement changed forever: http://bit.ly/kinJqY. Today is the anniversary of the first No Kill community. And I wasn’t the only one who was there: http://exm.nr/LujQMl. In celebration, over 700 shelters and other organizations, including some of the largest animal control shelters have pledged to make this the safest day for animals in shelters this century by putting down their “euthanasia needles” and picking up cameras.
They will photograph animals, they will promote them and they will find them loving, new homes. Many shelters which are normally closed today are staying open for adoptions, extending hours, cutting fees and increasing marketing. And once they see the benefits of engaging the community, it will be easier for them to make June 12 No Kill for Just One MORE Day….
