If a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, then the path to No Kill begins with Just One Day. Every year on June 11, we ask shelters across the country to put down their needles and become No Kill for Just One Day. Roughly 13,000 animals are adopted, over 1,000 shelters and rescue groups come together, adopters welcome a new family member, the incinerators remain shuttered and the morgues stay empty. We erase more than one day’s worth of killing in the U.S. June 11 just may be the safest day for companion animals in shelters. And on June 11, 2015, we hope to do even better.
