• Saving Cats in Our Community [La Porte, Texas]
    In order to create compassionate no-kill communities and achieve no-kill for cats nationwide, we need communities to support lifesaving programs like Trap-Neuter-Return [TNR]. The process is simple: cats are caught (often by volunteers), evaluated by veterinarians, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and returned to their original outdoor homes, unable to have kittens. These programs are also proven to be the most cost-effective, veterinarian-approved, and animal-friendly solution for controlling and reducing free-roaming cat populations.

  • Burlington County: Support our Cats, Support Trap-Neuter-Return
    Each township in New Jersey sets their own rules and regulations about what is allowed and not allowed in their township, including how community/stray cats are managed. The townships of Burlington, Chesterfield, Delanco, Edgewater Park, Florence, Mansfield, Medford Lakes, New Hanover, Palmyra, Pemberton Borough, Riverton and Willingboro do not currently allow for stray cat management through trap-neuter-vaccinate-return. Every township should allow for humane, safe, and cost-effective management of stray cats that is known to be effective at controlling the cat population. Township leaders need to hear from you, their constituents, that this matters to you and your community. Sign the petition and add your township so we can let each township committee know this change is needed and wanted.

  • Repeal The City Of Fayette BSL Ban
    This is an important issue because no animal should be ripped away from loving families and killed simply based on how it looks, what breed it is, or what characteristics it has.

  • Stop Puppy Mill Sales in San Marcos, Texas
    More than 440 other cities, counties and states have already passed laws to stop the retail sale of pets sourced from commercial breeding facilities. It's time for our community to do the same. Puppy and kitten mills are in business to supply pet stores. The pets in these facilities often spend their entire lives in dirty, crowded cages for the sole purpose of producing as many animals as possible for the retail pet trade. Pet stores that obtain animals from these facilities are not an asset to our community. These facilities also produce puppies that are often sick, causing unsuspecting consumers to have to care for a new pet in need of expensive veterinary treatment. Milled puppies can also spread campylobacter, a dangerous, drug-resistant bacteria that is contagious to humans. In the past several years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) traced a multi-state outbreak of Campylobacter to pet store puppies. This is a public health risk in a time where public health should be a top priority. A humane pet sales ordinance will not prevent pet stores from doing business, but it will reduce the burden on our shelters and rescue groups by increasing pet adoptions. It will also benefit our local ethical hobby breeders by allowing them to provide responsibly bred pets directly to those who cannot find what they are looking for through adoption. Please consider protecting pets and consumers by passing a humane pet sales ordinance for this community.

  • Make Rapides Parish a Safe, Humane Community
    In 2021, the Louisiana state legislature passed two humane initiative resolutions [SR 125 and HR 120]. Resolutions are an important way for local government to declare a stance on a particular issue. Through a humane animal resolution, elected officials make a clear statement that they want their community to work towards ending killing in shelters. This helps draw a line in the sand to drive toward the goal of saving the lives of dogs and cats.  Now it is time for local parishes to commit their support for pet lifesaving by passing a humane resolution.

  • Support Safe, Humane Communities for People and Pets in Luna County
    Earlier this year, the New Mexico state legislature passed a humane initiative memorial [HM024]. Memorials (or resolutions) are a way for the state legislature to express legislative desire through declaration, frequently addressed to other governmental bodies, such as local government. A humane resolution makes the statement that elected officials want to see local municipal agencies and animal shelter managers work toward ending killing in shelters. They help to draw a line in the sand, and get everyone on the same page, driving toward the goal of saving the lives of dogs and cats.  Now it’s time for local communities to commit their support for lifesaving by passing a humane resolution.
