You Gotta Get Up

The excitement was infectious at the 2015 American Pets Alive No Kill Conference. As you can see in this video, everyone was more than ready to make something happen to save the lives of healthy and treatable pets in animal shelters.

Thank you to Dr. Ellen Jefferson, Ann Lindholm and everyone at American Pets Alive for the best conference yet.

During the past century, Americans have changed the way we feel about our pets. Animals have gone from our barnyards to our back yards and into our bedrooms, yet the business model of shelters never changed. It’s time to bring animal sheltering into the 21st century. It’s time to bring our shelters into alignment with our values. You gotta get up.
