As the Executive Director of Green Pets America Charities we are asked regularly, Do Our Companion Animals Have A Right To Life? Sadly, the answer is.
In America our companion animals do not have a right to life.
This must change! And we are working hard and working smart to make it happen.
At green Pets America we believe that our companion animals have a right to life, just as we humans. We must no longer in America categorize companion animals as “Things”. Being classified today legally as “Things” they are worth no value. They can be harmed or killed and it is legal in the eyes of the court.
We believe that our companion animals must be legally granted the classification of “Personhood”. With personhood legal status they can no longer be killed at whim in shelters, or by hateful people who have no value for the lives and joy our companion animals bring to us and this world.
Every year 7 million companion animals enter our animals shelters. About 4 million are adopted. And the remaining 3 million? They are euthanized. Why because they have no legal rights. There are no laws to stop euthanizing healthy shelter companion animals. The “Law” says they are merely “things” that can disposed of by the shelters at will. When we pass the Companion Animal Right to Life Act, CARLA setting in place the “Personhood Law” and classify them from things to personhood, then and only then will we stop killing America’s companion animals.
