Elections are just right around the corner – Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
There are over 70 open-admission No Kill shelters across the nation who have taken killing off the table and are saving at an upwards of 90%, with some achieving 95 to 98% save rates. There is not a single No Kill community in the state of Arizona. So why not start here in Maricopa County?
Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) is funded by taxpayer dollars and has maintained around a 50% kill rate for many years. Killing shelter animals is entirely revenue negative. Under current shelter leadership, MCACC has killed well over 150,000 animals. This has wasted over $15,900,000 in taxpayer dollars. Rodrigo Silva, MCACC shelter director, refuses to take killing off the table and blatantly wastes taxpayer dollars doing so.
Killing is an act of violence. Do you want your taxpayer dollars utilized to needlessly kill shelter animals when there is proven, national success it does not have to be this way?
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, which consists of five seats, governs MCACC. No Kill Maricopa County has met with the following Board of Supervisor candidates to discuss the No Kill movement and they are committed to support No Kill efforts:
District 2 – Steve Chucri
District 3 – Andy Kunasek
District 5 – Ron Harders
Your vote can help bring positive, lifesaving changes to the shelter animals of Maricopa County. Spread the word and let’s get Maricopa County on the map to No Kill success!
