Anually, over 9.6 Million animals are sentenced to death in the United States, by Animal Shelters alone. Most of the inexcusable deaths are simply due, not to the fact that they are unsuitable for homes, but that the shelters were running short of room. By signing this petition, you help to secure the lives of the innocent animals in shelters everywhere. Many of the animals brought into the shelters have never felt the kind caress of a human hand or the joy of being 'Man's best friend', instead they have been abused and mistreated, Cast aside. Now, they will never have a chance to truly live life, but you can help. No-Kill shelters do exist, and you can help support them. Please, do right by the animals and be the voice and help for those who are unable to help themselves. Every signature added to this petition is another step in the right direction in the fight for animal rights.
