Join our campaign to ensure every companion animal enjoys the love, health, and happiness they deserve. Be the change in a pet's life today!
In a world where our furry companions give us unconditional love and joy, it’s our duty to ensure they receive the highest standard of care.
Inspired by Tulsa, Oklahoma's recent law to improve pet welfare, we're here to champion similar change in our community. This law, a beacon of progress in animal welfare, mandates comprehensive care for pets, especially those living outdoors1.
The Urgency of Improved Pet Care
Many pets suffer due to lack of proper care, facing issues from neglect and inadequate shelter to poor nutrition and health problems. The alarming number of preventable illnesses and deaths among pets, particularly in extreme weather conditions, underscores the need for immediate action. By embracing higher care standards, we can significantly enhance the lives of our pets2.
What This Means for Our Pets
Proper care goes beyond feeding and shelter; it encompasses regular veterinary check-ups, appropriate nutrition, and mental and physical stimulation.
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) highlights the importance of preventive medicine, adequate living conditions, and regular exercise for pets' overall well-being3. These are not just guidelines but necessities for a pet's health and happiness.
Your Role in This Movement
Your involvement is crucial. By understanding and advocating for these care standards, you can make a real difference in the lives of pets. It's about more than just personal responsibility; it's about building a community that collectively values and protects all animals.
Take the Pledge
By signing the Compassionate Pet Care Pledge, you're not just making a commitment to your pet but also setting an example for others. This pledge is a promise to uphold the dignity and well-being of every pet, inspired by the trailblazing steps of Tulsa.
Your signature signifies a commitment to a healthier, happier future for pets and their humans. Together, we can transform our community into a haven of care and respect for all companion animals.
Sign the pledge today and ensure every pet experiences the love and care they rightfully deserve.
