Report: Miami-Dade County, Florida -- Stops the Killing of Companion Animals for "Just One Day" -- Announcing, 1st annual North American No Kill Day
MIAMI-DADE, Fla., June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sunshine State just got a whole lot sunnier.
Miami Dade Animal Services, in association with No Kill Nation, Inc., will be holding a special adoption event on Monday, June 11, 2012, joining over 600 animal shelters across the continent that have taken the pledge not to kill any savable animals for Just One Day.
To most people, June 11 is Just One Day. But, June 11 is a day that could change everything for 10,411 companion animals, and a day that can change the world. On June 11, 2012, we could be a No Kill nation.
For Just One Day, "Euthanasia Technicians" will put down their syringes and pick up cameras. Instead of injecting animals with lethal doses of sodium pentobarbital, they will photograph them and post them on the Internet, on Facebook, on twitter. On June 11, 2012, they will market their animals to the public, they will reach out to rescue groups, they will host adoption events with discounted rates, they will stay open for extended hours, and they will ask their communities to help them empty the shelter the good way.
Instead of going into body bags in freezers, the animals will go out the front door in the loving arms of families. At the end of the day, the shelters will be emptier than when the day started. And, no one will have had to die in order to make that happen. To help them succeed, the No Kill Advocacy Center, Animal Ark and Animal Wise Radio are teaming up to offer shelters the tools they need to be successful.
To celebrate this historic event, Miami-Dade Animal Services is offering $11 dog/puppy adoptions, and $6 cat/kitten adoptions all day!
