Citizens for Animal Shelter Reform
We are petitioning the Johnston County Board of Commissioners regarding the Johnston County Animal Shelter. This shelter has not worked with volunteers in over a year and the animals are the ones that suffer the most for this. We have been trying to work with the Director and the County Manager for over 10 months to develop a volunteer program -and we have dealt with delays after delays. We are asking the Board to step up and understand that this shelter needs volunteers and that Johnston County cares about their homeless animals. Volunteers make a big difference in a shelter-they help improve conditions, reduce costs and increase adoption rates.
We are also asking the Board to stop the practice of euthanasia by gas chamber (instead they can use the lethal injection) as most NC shelters have already discontinued gas chambers and use lethal injections. This is a inhumane, outdated procedure that actually costs more to do that the injections. There is No reason to continue the gas chamber. Most animals euthanizied this way suffer a long traumatic death.
