Target: Barbara Hays, Manger of Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center
Goal: Demand animal shelter apologize for euthanizing a pit bull despite more humane options.
An animal shelter euthanized a pit bull, despite potential evidence that could have saved his life. An animal rescue center reached out to claim the dog but allegedly did not receive a response. Take a stand for animal rights and condemn the Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center (NACC).
The popular pit bull, known locally as McLovin, was admitted to NACC after mauling a cat to death. While the violent attack worried many, it was the dog’s premature death that stunned the community. NACC euthanized McLovin within 24 hours of his admission, despite apparent claims of ownership at another shelter. Second Chances, McLovin’s previous shelter, was reportedly willing to save his life if only NACC had returned their calls.
No animal should be euthanized when a better option exists. A thorough investigation could have shown that McLovin had a home at Second Chances. Sign below and demand justice for McLovin.
Dear Ms. Hays,
When McLovin was brought to you, you had a chance to save his life. Instead, you reportedly chose to euthanize him. We demand that you apologize for this act of cruelty.
McLovin committed a terrible act when he mauled a cat to death. However, it is his death that has caused ethical concern in the community. Euthanasia should always be a last resort. Second Chances could have given McLovin a home and saved his life. Instead, you made the decision to kill him.
We demand that you apologize for this incident and conduct more thorough investigations into all future euthanasia cases.
[Your Name Here]
