Pit bulls are welcome again in Yorkville, WI. A candidate for President of the United States promises the creation of a No Kill nation as part of his platform. California agrees to build the world’s largest land bridge to help a lonely mountain lion find a mate. Killing is down over 90% in Delaware thanks to a shelter reform law that would achieve the same result in every state which passes it. The Philadelphia pound is an “utter disgrace” with filthy cages and “fetid air.” A former PETA fieldworker is the latest whistleblower to bring to light her indoctrination into a “cult-like” culture of killing. “Conservations” call for the mass killing of dogs worldwide. And 103,370 animals found homes during the Clear the Shelters adoption event, making last weekend the safest for homeless animals in America by far.
In case you missed it:
- Dogs identified as “pit bulls” are welcome again in Yorkville, WI, after it repealed a ban which had been in place for over 20 years.
- When a candidate for President of the United States promises the creation of a No Kill nation as part of his platform, the movement has truly become a potent force for change. That moment has arrived.
- P-22, a mountain lion, can’t find a mate because he’s separated from females by a freeway. California is proposing to build the largest land bridge in the world across 10 lanes of traffic, for $87 million, so he can safely get across. Almost every single person — 99.8% — who commented on the proposal agreed to it.
- While the recent headlines announcing that Delaware is a No Kill state are not accurate, statewide killing is down over 90% thanks, in part, to the Companion Animal Protection Act, shelter reform legislation which every state should pass.
- The Philadelphia city pound is an “utter disgrace” with filthy cages and “fetid air,” including “the overpowering stench of dog feces and urine.” “[D]esperate” cats are living in an environment that “smelled like a giant litter box that hadn’t been emptied in a month.” Here’s how to fix it.
- A former PETA fieldworker is the latest whistleblower to bring to light her indoctrination into a “cult-like” culture of killing at PETA; a culture she describes as “terrifying.”
- There was a time when the environmental movement’s mission was to protect plants and animals from poisons, chainsaws, traps, and guns. Since it has been hijacked by Invasion Biology, an ecologically jingoistic philosophy masquerading as science, it has turned that mission on its head. It now uses poisons, chainsaws, traps, and guns to kill plants and animals. Announcing its latest target, the “environmental movement” wants to eradicate dogs worldwide.
And finally, 103,370 animals found homes during the weekend’s Clear the Shelters adoption event in which thousands of shelters across the country participated. Since the event specifically targets municipal pounds, most of these are animals who otherwise faced being killed. That erases almost three weeks worth of killing in the United States and makes the weekend the safest for homeless animals in America by far.
Thank you for being a part of the discussion.
P.S. A reminder that the No Kill Advocacy Center is celebrating its 15th birthday and 15 years of saving lives. We now have No Kill communities across the country and they all achieved it using our approach. For the animals who live in those cities and towns and for the people who love them, we are making a life and death difference. Please consider a small gift of $15.
