City of Amarillo Joins Nationwide Campaign to be No Kill Nation June 11
Amarillo, TX – On June 11, 2012, our community will end the euthanization of healthy and treatable animals, even if it just for one day. The City of Amarillo’s Animal Control department and the Amarillo Panhandle Humane Society will join the nationwide “Just One Day” effort to empty the shelters in a win-win way. Loveable puppies, kittens, cats and dogs will put their best paw forward to encourage residents to open their hearts and homes to adoption.
To help those animals, the City is teaming with the Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society to host an adoption event this Monday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the shelter, located at 3501 S. Osage. Even better, those adoptions will be offered at half-price, along with other specials, through the Humane Society.
So, what is a day? There are many ways to answer that question. A day is 24 hours. A day is how we measure how much time we spend at work. A day can be something we look forward to, a celebration of some kind. But in animal shelters across the U.S., a day represents 10,411 lives needlessly lost. 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.
The City of Amarillo’s Animal Control has joined animal shelters across the U.S. and taken a pledge to not euthanize any savable animals on June 11, 2012. On that day, the United States could become a No Kill nation, even if it is for Just One Day.
