Community Involvement – High Kill Shelters Need to be Shut Down or Be Creative to Save

4/11/15 – protest kittyVery proud of the 4 Paws 1 Heart Board members and the 4 Paws 1 Heart Support Group Joanne Marie Hoopes, Debra Berolatti, Denise Najera, Patricia DiMaggio Siergiej, who came out to protest the deathly practices of the Humane Society of Macomb. Shirley, owner/director, can justify all she wants, she can clean up the place for the media, and she can claim that her “kill rate” includes owner requests for euthanasia. But their own facts speak for themselves — 1,363 cats were taken into the shelter in 2013 and 998 were euthanized at the director’s choice (70% kill rate) and 497 were allegedly at owner’s request. Let’s keep up the fight.  This kitty is one of of small percentage who made it out alive and was adopted.  He couldn’t stop eating for three days, according to his owner. ~ diana
