Did Just One Day Work?

Everybody who adopted a cat on June 11 is awesome!

You might remember that when I blogged about Adopt a Feline Overlord Month, I also mentioned that June 11 was being promoted as “Just One Day,” in which shelters were urged to put down their implements of euthanization and become no-kill, at least for the one day. So how did it go? I went over to the Just One Day Facebook page to find out. And I was amazed by many of the stories there!

Shelter parking lots were full and many facilities were running out of animals! In Tucson, 116 animals were adopted and 16 saved by rescue organizations. Houston’s Animal Control is normally closed on Monday, but they opened their doors and offered free adoptions — in fact, it was an adoption three-day weekend for them that got homes for 149 pets. Thirty-two cats and kittens were saved in Sacramento. Boone County Animal Shelter in Kentucky adopted out 37 animals. Austin Pets Alive, which already advocates no-kill discounted their adoption fees for pets over 3 months old. Shelters in Florida, Tennessee and elsewhere were emptied! There was enough room left in many facilities so that no animals had to be euthanized on Tuesday either. Just One Day was a huge success!

Want more inspiration? Visit the Just One Day Facebook page. Wouldn’t it be great if this was just the first step towards making the U.S. a no-kill nation?
