Mulligan was adopted from the Gross Ile Animal Shelter.

Peanut Butter, a healthy orphaned kitten, was killed by the New York City pound with a rescuer only minutes away. New York City pound facilities are dark, dirty, inadequate, and unhygienic for animals. “Teenaged” dogs, like teenaged kids, rebel. Major — one of two dogs belonging to President-Elect Joe Biden’s family — will be the first shelter adopted dog who will occupy the White House. McDonald’s announced that it is launching a veggie burger worldwide. The number of communities placing over 98% of the animals is increasing. And this week marked the 11-year anniversary of the ASPCA’s killing of Oreo, an abused dog, who a No Kill sanctuary offered to save.

In case you missed it:

The number of communities placing over 98% of the animals is increasing, including:

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, this week marked the 11-year anniversary of the ASPCA’s killing of Oreo, an abused dog, who a No Kill sanctuary offered to save. Oreo was a one-year-old dog who was thrown off the roof of a six-floor Brooklyn apartment building in 2009. She suffered two broken legs and a fractured rib. The ASPCA nursed her back to health and arrested the perpetrator. They also dubbed her the “miracle dog” and fundraised off her plight, reportedly raising millions. But the miracle was short lived. After the money was counted and safely deposited into ASPCA bank accounts, the ASPCA made the decision to kill her.
