URGENT: Proposal to 86 adoption program means DEATH in the GAS CHAMBER!!!

—————————————————————————————————-

Hi Everyone,

As you know, the SPCA rescues hundreds of puppies and family dogs slated for euthanasia in southern shelters each year.  One of the largest shelters we work with is Gaston County Animal Control in Gastonia, NC. This shelter has an 85% kill rate and still euthanizes via the gas chamber, a barbaric practice that is illegal in most states. To make matters worse, in order to meet budget cuts the Gaston director is now proposing to do away with the adoptions program in its entirety which means even more animals will be killed. Please email the commissioners listed below and tell them that sacrificing more lives is not an acceptable way to fill a budget deficit. North Carolina residents, your voices are especially needed!

I don’t often send these around but this is too important. The SPCA has pulled almost 500 dogs and puppies from this shelter in the past year and united them with loving families in our area. Please forward to all likeminded friends and family.

Thanks,

Shannon

Dear Friends,

On Feb.9th, the FEI will hold a closed door, no press allowed meeting to discuss Rollkur for the fifth time.

The list of invitees is long but only one man has spoken up loudly agaisnt rollkur again and again and refused to be silenced. That one man, Dr. Heuschmann will stand quite alone in a room dominated by interests that have nothing to do with the good of the horse. Please show him and the FEI that his fight, our fight has not been in vain and that there are thousands upon thousands of horse lovers who stand with him.

On Sunday a petition went live after 9:00am CA time on his publisher’s website. We need 20,000 signatures!

I do not know what your policy is for these things, but I am asking you if you could personalize one of the following messages, or create one from scratch if you prefer and distribute it tomorrow. If you reach out to all your equine friends, colleagues, professionals, I know you can make a difference.
