With Hurricane Isaac under watchful eye, many cities have been reviewing their hurricane preparedness plans recently. Officials in Corpus Christi, TX asked animal control what their plan was for the shelter pets in case of a hurricane:
“Their hurricane response plan was to euthanize all of the animals, which is totally unacceptable,” Assistant City Manager Troy Riggs said.
Thank you to those at city hall for demanding a Plan B for the community pets when those paid to do the job would not.
Of course killing shelter pets as a means of population control is not reserved for natural disasters in this country but is the standard operating procedure at most municipal facilities every day of the year. A trailer for a documentary on the no kill movement has just been released. Watch it and be inspired to ask what Plan B is in your community.
