OUR ADOPTABLE PETS

Tuesday, January 1, 2008

Marion Angels in Marion, Arkansas

Now these are people who really, really love animals. A group of hardworking, dedicated people committed to one cause. Saving a few lives. They report having few funding options from their city government (I was told the shelter had no air circulation in it and someone donated an air conditioning unit, but the mayor and council would not pay for the electricity to run it) yet still they keep their eyes on the goal -- finding good homes for their dogs, getting the sick ones to a rescue as soon as they can, all in the interest of saving lives.

Visit http://petsworthsaving.blogspot.com to see how hard these people are working to make a difference in their community.

The problem of homeless animals should never have made it to the critical stage it is in today. We are a civilized society, yet we perform the uncivilized ritual of discarding the sick, injured, and homeless as though they don't matter. It's not just animals we do this to. Humans in the same situation are suffering every day. What are you doing about it?

RESCUES CAN'T SAVE LIVES WITH PET LIMIT LAWS

Pet Limit Laws Limit Rescue Organizations and other Responsible Pet Owners, Not Irresponsible Pet Owners
An irresponsible pet owner will be irresponsible with one -- or 20 -- pets! Until a city can write an ordinance that forces people to CARE about their animals, a few irresponsible pet owners will continue to indirectly help in the killing of healthy, adoptable animals at kill shelters everywhere.
A rescue organization member is trained in how to handle more than 3 dogs, is responsible enough to say, "I can't handle any more dogs right now," pays to spay/neuter, vaccinate, and put pets on heartworm and flea prevention, and gives much needed additional time for the pet to find its forever home.

We have asked the City of Arnold to allow rescue organizations the opportunity to save more lives by going over the pet limit every now and then to save a life. Our many requests are falling on deaf ears.

If you believe the City of Arnold could -- and should -- tolerate rescue groups enough to make an exception to the dog limit every now and then to save a life, please contact Mary Holden at mholden@arnoldmo.org and Matt Unrein at munrein@arnoldmo.org, and contact your city council representatives and tell them there is such a thing as COOPERATION between government and citizens! We're doing it for the New JCAC Shelter Fund!
