Demand Community Home Stop Using Glue Traps

Target: Carol Mitchell, President of the Verland Foundation

Goal: Stop the Verland Foundation from using glue traps.

The Verland Foundation, an organization that assists individuals with disabilities, has allegedly been using glue traps as a means of rodent population control. Glue traps are incredibly cruel and harbor disease. It is time the Verland Foundation manage the rodent population in a more humane, efficient way.

Glue traps work by luring the animal, typically with food, to a sticky pad that traps the animal. Once trapped, the animal panics and will go to extremes to escape, including chewing off their own limbs. In addition, the Center for Disease Control discourages the use of glue traps as they harbor and can spread disease from the animals urine and feces.

Sign this petition to demand the Verland Foundation ditch its cruel glue traps and utilize more humane and effective means of rodent control.


Dear Ms. Mitchell,

It recently came to my attention that the Verland Foundation has been using glue traps as a means of rodent control. Not only are these traps incredibly cruel, but they also harbor disease. There are alternative, more humane ways of managing rodent populations that I urge you to look into.

Glue traps work by using very sticky material to trap the animal on the pad. Once stuck, the animal will panic and go to desperate measures to escape, including chewing off their own limbs. In addition, the animal will typically defecate out of fear and their urine and feces can hold and spread disease. Even the Center for Disease Control urges against using glue traps due to the bacteria it can carry.

Please consider using an alternative, more humane method of rodent population control. With so many other options, there is no need for this excessive cruelty.

    Cruel traps. Not humane in the least. Wonder why we have crazy kids? adults? Disgusting things like leg hold traps. When a child wanders into one of those people will finally figure it out.

  3. Theses are banned in so many places for a reason. STOP USING THEM NOW!!!!!

  4. Glue traps are unbelievable cruel causing both physical and mental distress. The fear coupled with the suffering of dehydration and starvation. It really is barbaric. With more and more research showing rats and other animals as caring and intelligent beings, can’t we do the same. End this cruel practice and next time only use humane traps!
