Our participation and support of the No Kill Movement, to end the senseless killing of healthy companion critters....

We don't normally get "political" with our blog.  But we are extremely passionate about animals and what happens to them. 

At the end of the month we are participating in a "No Kill Shelter" Conference in Houston, Texas.

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know about House Bill 3450, the Companion Animal Protection Act that is being talked about in Texas. 

We are doing our best to see that it becomes a law.  Houston has five kill shelters that kill about 80,000 dogs and kitties every year.  We have the option to help a city in Texas do the "right thing" with homeless dogs and cats.   

Austin has set the mark, and Houston can follow their lead.  The bill would eliminate "gas chamber" killing of dogs and cats, (just passed in Alabama, SB172 Beckhams Bill).  It would require that rescue groups be allowed to take animals, like the Hayden Bill here in California passed in the late 90's.

If you would like to participate in this effort, WE WOULD LOVE IT ! We have listed the email address for the members involved, also some have FB pages, and snail mail to write letters of course. Any or all ways of letting them know how important this is will be appreciated.  The Houston shelters are busy  pushing forward with excuses that they have always killed animals this way-- it's too much trouble to change... etc.   

Other opinions and options must be voiced! 

Here is a wonderful very detailed article about HB 3450 here
