For the sake of those who don't like clicking on links if they are not sure exactly what they are for:

Although on thepetitionsite, this is not really a petition, just a way for people to let everyone else know what great work shelters do and how having a pet has enriched your life AND got an animal off the streets and into a loving home

Did your pet come from an animal shelter? If so, the ASPCA wants to hear your "tail"! Tell us about your pet and include their photo. How has your pet enriched your life? How did rescuing a pet from a shelter make you feel?

Every day thousands of loving and adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized in animal shelters because there are simply not enough homes for them all.

The ASPCA is launching a focused effort to create a country of humane communities, one community at a time -- where animals receive compassion and respect, and where there is no more unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable animals simply because of a lack of resources or awareness.

Tell the ASPCA about your adoption experiences and include a photo of your special companion. This is fun way to spread the word about the importance of adopting pets from shelters rather than pet stores and encouraging others to do the same.

Yes we got Mickey from the San Diego Animal Shelter when he was 7 years old. My Father worked for the SPCA for over 10 years, it was a real hard job for him.

All 3 of my cats were adopted from shelters. 3 different shelters, in fact! Raphael from the one I now work for, Gracie from another (but much smaller) no-kill rescue and Leo from a big municipal open-admit shelter.
