Today is No Kill Day, a day during which we ask each other to imagine a world where no healthy animals are killed simply because they don’t yet have an adoptive home. Click here to read the headlines on Google News – sounds like a lot of shelters who have pledged not to kill any animals today are having record adoptions. Via No Kill Nation on Facebook:
Some shelters are reporting that they’ve run out of animals. Some have done more adoptions today than they normally do in a week. And still others have reported staff being brought to tears as animals that normally would have been killed are leaving the shelter alive in the loving arms of their new families in record numbers.
Today I’m feeling very fortunate and grateful that we have a no-kill shelter here in Tompkins County: Tompkins County SPCA. And I’m feeling very fortunate and grateful for the love of Sid, Zora, and Snow, our three cat friends. We adopted them off the streets of Brooklyn, and my only regret is that we didn’t let them in sooner.
