help us get to 45,000

A staggering number of cats are killed in shelters each year. And the majority of these killings happen in secret, away from the public eye and off the record. That's because only a few states require animal shelters to keep records and publicly report the number of cats they kill each year.
You have a right to know what is happening to the animals in your shelters and how your tax dollars and donations are being spent. You can demand that policies change.
A revolutionary change in shelter practice and policy is needed. Pledge to make this happen at your local shelter by contacting them to: - Find out their policy on keeping records of how many cats they kill.
- Encourage them to make this information publicly available.
- Support humane methods of care, such as affordable and accessible spay and neuter services and Trap-Neuter-Return programs.
