Too many animals are senselessly murdered everyday!! End the murder!
Vote yes to a no kill shelter
After reviewing the budget proposals it appears that this worthwhile subject is more of a campaign rather than a budget issue. There are many enterprises such as Friends of Homeless Animals (of Virginia) www.foha.org who might offer help in expanding their operations to the Harrisonburg area.
I support:Due to citizen concerns with the RHSPCA's high kill rate, the city and county funded a shelter study last year. The independent consultant found the RHSPCA to be "a decade or more behind shelters of it type in the region and in the state". Animal advocates in the community support no kill animal sheltering with a focus on positive outcomes for over 90% of the animals that find their way to the shelter. A no kill model would best reflect the values of Harrisonburg, a progressive and compassionate city.
