Spay/neuter petition

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just got this in an email.

United Pet Way
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Press Release:
Project Save-A-Pet

Brenda Beck animal rights activist, and Founder and President of United Pet Way a non-profit no-kill animal welfare organization, has begun to circulate a national “Project Save-A-Pet No-Kill Spay/Neuter†Petition asking animal lovers, shelters and state legislators all across America to step up to the plate and be a “ voice for those who cannot speak†to sign the petition and help pass new state mandatory free spay and neuter laws for all county and city kill shelters that are publicly funded to spend and use our tax dollars to help prevent pet overpopulation through this already implemented free spay and neuter program started last year in Dade
County, Florida.

To get this no-kill spay and neuter petition reviewed by each state
legislation will require a minimum of 500,000 animal lover signatures in every state to help get new laws passed to help reduce the overwhelming pet overpopulation crisis in that state that all public kill shelters face on the many innocent animals that are tragically being born and put to death everyday. Through a very simple cost effective state mandated low cost or free spay and neuter program will allow each individual county public kill shelter to offer to their own county residents a better solution to the pet over- population crisis that animals have suffered due to our own irresponsibility.

Each new approved state no-kill and spay and neuter laws would be cloned to replicate to follow the same no-kill and spay and neuter guidelines that were implemented last year at the Miami Dade County Animal Services in Dade County, Florida. (Read Miracle in Miami)


Florida’s Miami-Dade County Animal Services has become the site for an
historic milestone step in animal pet overpopulation prevention control by offering to all Dade county residents FREE no cost spay and neutering for their animals no matter if you are rich or poor. In June 2001, Capt. Mark Jeter of the Miami-Dade Police Department became head shelter Director of the county’s Animal Services Unit. He discovered that in 2000, his shelter had taken in 22, 786 animals, and had euthanized 17,123 of them a majority being healthy adoptable animals and something had to change.

Jeter undertook to reduce the number of these needless deaths. He began better shelter and pet adoption marketing and advertising campaigns throughout the Dade community by offering more pet adoption events two or three times a month, instead of the normal two or three times a year that his predecessors had scheduled. He also began work with local veterinarians to offer free pet spay/neuter services to any Miami-Dade County resident who wanted to have their pets fixed. He became a No-Kill advocate to offer other kill shelters better ideas to help increase pet adoptions while decreasing the number of healthy adoptable animals from being killed.

Through Brenda Beck's vision is to help get new spay and neuter laws
passed through legislation in every U.S. state jurisdiction. Since
Miami-Dade’s shelter relies on dog license tag sales, shelter fees,
enforcement fines, and private donations to operate, these fees is which helps to offset the costs and provide for their spay/neuter program services to the community for free. Other state legislations and county kill shelters all across America that are publicly supported by our tax dollars should find NO opposition for budgetary reasons to follow these same guidelines that have already have been proven and tested by Miami Dade Animal Services on a definite win/win to help reduce the pet over population crisis that has plagued kill shelters all across America.

Every year six million companion animals die in kill shelters all across America, over 16,000 puppies, kitten’s dogs and cats per day, with no voice fighting for them. Beck’s “Project Save-A-Pet†goal is for every county and city kill shelter to model and clone itself on that of Miami-Dade Animal Services. Beck admits that many citizens have a “see no evil, hear no evil†view toward euthanizing pets. United Pet Way, however, is a voice for animals who can only suffer in silence. To sign be a voice for those who cannot speak, please sign the “Project Save-A-Pet No-Kill†petition at:


We are looking for animal lover volunteers in every state to help spread the petition to get signatures and to help pass this petition on other fellow animal lovers to do the same.
