It's about time we all stand up and let it be heard that we want NO KILL shelters only! We need to support no kill shelters by adopting from them AND help out our local no kill rescues. Shelters need to use these rescues for the over flow of animals go

I hate to be critical, but hope you take this as the constructive type. I read the petition and there are a number of incorrect words and grammatical errors. If you actually plan to send this to congress I suggest you correct it prior.

When shelters take HOARDS of animals from people, They need to make them responsible for the care. I think pet shops should work hand in hand with shelters to place these animals as well.

N'd and Signed of course, Thank You Cher.

All "shelters" should be NO KILL , after all they are not supposed to be slaughter houses filled with voiceless animals that cannot speak for their lives or defend thier lives. They should "protect and house" these animals that love us unconditionaly (as thier namesake indicates), that are only there because of our disregard and disrespect for their "lives".

Some things that would definatly help get the ball rolling....
-TNR
-No more puppy mills
-No more animals sold at pet stores(unless and only if they come from shelters).
-Low cost or no cost spay and nueter
-Nuetered and spayed only adoptions
-Stop or apply strick laws for breeders
-Stop breed specific (which only leads to more unwanted, disgarded and/or mamed animals)

Thank you for signing the petition "Make all shelters NO KILL in the USA"

By the way, FYI, IN THE AREA FOR REDEEMING BUTTERFLY CREDITS, if you click on so-called "Raise a Farm Animal Humanely" kink, you will see that they SLAUGHTER the farm animals, and this is one farm who is profiting from our butterfly credits! This is not a arm where animals go to be saved. These animals are KILLED to be EATEN.

That would be nice but it is totally unrealistic. Unless spay and neuter are free even then, people are really lazy. They populate quicker than humans. Having a pet is a responsibility not to be taken lightly.

Until we have a better control on the animal population in this country, I feel that no kill shelters is unrealistic.
There is not enough money to go around to support all the animals that are abused, neglected, and unwanted in this country.
We need to work on banning puppy mills, eliminate pet store and swap meet animal sales, and mandatory spay/neuter of all pets. Only then will we be able to make all shelters no kill, as then only lost animals will be in shelters.

Noted and signed. Thank you for posting, Cher. As Morris G. suggested, please work with the petition originator to correct grammar and spelling errors prior to submitting to Congress. For example, "unexceptionable" should be corrected to read "unacceptable." "It needs not to be an option anymore. These animals deserve the be happy and to make a humane happy as well!" should be revised to read "It need not be an option anymore. These animals deserve to be happy and to make a human happy as well."

I adopted my dog from a rescue group that primarily saves dogs slated for execution in area shelters. So I am 100% for making this initiative a possibility but, I wonder how it can be done. The petition says, "...people don't want to visit a shelter that is simply a death row for animals; it's too depressing." So, making shelters "no-kill, they'll find that people are willing to step forward and help." I don't buy that reason. Frankly, I have found that many people aren't even aware that animals are being killed at their local shelters, sometimes in just a few days. So, if they aren't aware of animals being killed, they are hardly likely to find a visit depressing for that reason. No, I think the primary reason is money. How can we afford to shelter, feed and staff these shelters?

I'm with Morris G. above who says, "I read the petition and there are a number of incorrect words and grammatical errors. If you actually plan to send this to congress I suggest you correct it prior." I would also note that they are looking to get only 1,000 signatures. Is that supposed to get anyone's attention? While the purpose is laudable, I question the execution and doubt its impact.
