D – Day; VIRGINIA Animal Lovers It’s Now or Never!

By Nathan Winograd

On Monday, the Virginia House of Delegates is going to vote on a bill that will determine whether animals are adopted into homes or are put to death. This is the final vote before it reaches the Governor. SB 1381, which has already passed the Senate, requires shelters in Virginia to be “operated for the purpose of finding permanent adoptive homes and facilitating other lifesaving outcomes for animals”: http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?151+sum+SB1381

In other words, it does what the public already thinks shelters do and what the dictionary says they do. But some don’t. Organizations that simply kill animals would no longer be allowed to do so. And they have the ear of the Virginia Animal Control Association which is lobbying hard against it—and the animals. In addition, it appears PETA has used money people have donated to save animals to hire a professional lobbyist to kill the bill—so they can continue killing the animals without making them available for adoption.

We need your support.
