So what makes us think we will be successful with our #NKBC2020 campaign to create a No Kill community for ALL of Brazoria County? And what exactly does No Kill mean?
No Kill ≠ No Euthanasia. The word euthanasia comes from the Greek for “good death.” To us, this means we reserve euthanasia for two situations: 1. when it is needed in order to give an animal relief from suffering that we cannot mitigate, or 2. when it is needed for an animal that is so aggressive that despite our attempts to rehabilitate, we cannot safely release that animal back out to the public.
We believe that killing pets that are healthy, or have treatable injuries/illnesses or rehabilitatable aggression, is exactly that: killing. We believe that every pet is an individual, worthy of love and a home.
Why do we know that we can create a No Kill community for all of Brazoria County? Because we have already had success in taking our local communities of Freeport, Clute, and Lake Jackson from a dismal 22% Save Rate to a 95% Save Rate.
We know how to do this. But saving animals takes SPACE and MONEY. That’s why we need your support to build a Community Pet Center to give us the space we need to save more lives.
This chart shows our stats as of January 31, 2017. It is organized by our budget years which are October 1 through September 30.
