As one of your Constituents, I urge you to Cosponsor and PASS H.Res. 776 National Animal Rescue Day, sponsored by Rep. Donald Norcross (NJ-1). Over 6 million cats and dogs are placed into shelters every year with 5 in 10 dogs and 7 in 10 cats euthanized. They need homes. In addition, the Resolution will: 1) support the tremendous need to educate our communities on spaying and neutering to take control of the overpopulation and the 70,000 puppies and kittens born EACH day; 2) educate Americans on pet responsibility to reduce the number of pets returned to shelters after they have been rescued; and 3) create a positive financial impact on Shelters throughout the country. Your leadership with this effort demonstrates the compassion, care, and integrity for which we have entrusted you with our communities and our families. I ask that you please consider this message urgent; I look forward to your follow up.
