According to Colorado Department of Agriculture statistics for fiscal year 2011, Colorado animal shelters euthanized 31,751 animals. Many of these animals were adoptable and needlessly died. On June 11, 2013, animal shelters across the U.S. are taking a pledge to not kill any savable animals for Just One Day. We are asking for Official Colorado support for Just One Day, encouraging all of Colorado’s shelters to market their animals to the public, aggressively partner with rescue groups, host special adoption events that have discounted and affordable rates, stay open for extended hours, and ask their communities to help them empty the shelter in the best way possible, where no animals die.
That’s why I signed a petition to Governor John Hickenlooper.
