For those of you looking to adopt a cat or dog, the Antioch Animal Services has taken the pledge and will be joining many other animal shelters across the country on today (June 11) by participating in Just One Day. In support of this effort, all of their available animals will have a special one time adoption fee of $50.
Today, participating animal shelters across the USA take a pledge not to kill any savable animals on June 11, 2014. For Just One Day, “Euthanasia Technicians” will put down their syringes and pick up cameras. Instead of injecting animals with lethal doses of sodium pentobarbital, they will photograph them and post them on the Internet, on Facebook, on twitter. Animals will be marketed to animals to the public, they will reach out to rescue groups, they will host adoption events with discounted rates, they will stay open for extended hours, and they will ask their communities to help them empty the shelter the good way.
