You know how important it is to promote animal rescue and adoption, especially in this economic crisis. Rescues and shelters in and near New Orleans are full of animals in need of loving homes. With our government bailing out Wall Street and the automakers, isn't there something Congress could do for our furry friends?
Ask your representative to support a National Animal Rescue Day!
Last fall, Rep. Robert E. Andrews (D-NJ) introduced a bill in Congress to designate the first Saturday in October as National Animal Rescue Day in order to "create awareness for animal rescue programs throughout the year, address the challenge of overpopulation through continued spaying and neutering of adopted pets, and bring Americans together as a Nation to support this common goal."
Help us make sure October 3, 2009 is National Animal Rescue Day - sign our petition to ask your representative to support this legislation to promote animal rescue and pet adoption today!
