Adoption Deadline petition - Please Support

No Animal Left Behind is a coalition of individuals, shelters and rescue groups that believes that the animal victims of Katrina not be allowed to be adopted until no sooner than January 1, 2006. We believe that there are enough people willing to provide long-term foster homes to these animals in order to give the owners sufficient time to locate them. Many of these pet owners are still without reliable and consistent internet access and/or phone service. Further, many of the animals who are labeld as "hard-to-place" are those most likely to belong to someone. Pets who are older and/or have chronic health problems have someone out there who has loved and cared for them for a very long time. We are concerned about getting all pets back home and need more time, especially for those most likely to be disposed of by overcrowded shelters.
