Tonka was in the Orange County shelter for 216 days before he was adopted.

A land bridge in Utah is allowing animals to cross a freeway safely. A state senator is speaking out against animal abuse at the New York City pound. No Kill Advocacy Center laws are saving tens of thousands of lives every year. The All American Vegan Candy Cookbook was named a Finalist at the 2020 American Book Fest Awards. Oak Ridge, TN, reported a 96% placement rate for dogs and 95% for cats. And Tonka was in the Orange County, FL, shelter for 216 days before he was adopted. 

In case you missed it:

These shelters and the data nationally prove that animals are NOT dying in pounds because there are too many or too few homes or people don’t want the animals. They are dying because people in those pounds are killing them. Replace those people, implement the No Kill Equation, and we can be a No Kill nation today.

And, finally, Tonka was in the Orange County shelter for 216 days before he was adopted. What do we owe the animals who arrive in our shelters looking for a second chance? We owe them safe harbor: no matter how many there are and no matter how long it takes to find them a home.
