Target: Christine Fatheree, Director of the Summit County Animal Control Center
Goal: Applaud a shelter for adopting every animal in its care during an adopt-a-thon.
Every year, over 7 million animals are put in the care of animal shelters in the United States alone. So many of these animals have been abused or are ill and run a slim chance of being adopted. However, an Ohio Animal Shelter is proving every animal can find a forever home. The Summit County Animal Control Center, directed by Christine Fatheree, defied the odds this Saturday when they hosted their annual adopt-a-thon. During the first 90 minutes alone, 93 animals had been officially adopted.
“It was insane, there are always 20 or so animals left over from adopt-a-thons, but the place was completely empty,” said Fatheree. People had been lining up at the doors since 6 a.m. the day of the adopt-a-thon and did not leave empty handed. Thanks to this amazing day, hundreds of cats and dogs now have loving forever homes. If every shelter in the United States was this effective, over 7 million animals would be in a caring and loving home rather than a confined cage waiting for adoption.
Sign this petition and praise this animal center for doing such an amazing job. Thanks to them, hundreds of animals are free from the threat of euthanasia.
Dear Director Fatheree,
I am writing to you today to congratulate you on the wildly successful adopt-a-thon that was held at your establishment, the Summit County Animal Control Center. Thanks to you and the hard work of all the workers and volunteers at the shelter, hundreds of cats and dogs are in the loving arms of the families that adopted them. Your center is credited for providing hundreds of forever homes for lonely animals that were desperate for love and care.
With over 7 million animals placed into shelters annually in the United States alone, your shelter sets an amazing example of how much we can do to combat the unfortunate case of animals without a home. Thank you for the work your shelter puts towards giving animals homes and saving the lives of these animals who no longer face the threat of euthanasia.
