Can America stop killing millions of shelter animals?

The question in animal welfare is can America ever stop killing millions of shelter animals?

Our belief is America CAN.

And to that end we have refocused our animal welfare organizations goal, to build a new animal welfare organization across America. It’s name is the American Companion Animal Network. Our short name is America CAN.

Our Belief

America CAN believes in America.

We believe that American’s are a kind people who love their companion animals.

We believe America no longer accepts the killing of millions of shelter animals every year.

America CAN believe’s that with compassionate leadership America Can end the killing of its homeless animals.

Further, we believe that the present model for animal welfare is broken. It must be updated for the 21st century. We believe that to achieve full adoptions in every community across America our animal industry must partner with each local animal shelter.

Shelters can no longer go it alone. Rescue groups can no longer run their organizations with little to no funding, begging for donations. Each community must come together to care for all the companion animals in its community. Each community must support and sufficiently fund their shelters.

The animal industry in each community can no longer sit on the sidelines, leaving it to welfare groups to do it alone. We believe the 21st century model must therefore be a community partnership model for each community across America. Ever community across America must build a nexus of organizations in their community of retail animal businesses, veterinary professionals, shelters, non-profit rescues, and government entities with the single focus to achieve 95% adoption rates in their community.

America CAN has 5 Core Beliefs. We believe that:

  1. America can compassionately care and protect from harm its companion animals
  2. America can adopt 95% of its healthy shelter animals
  3. America can adopt all its local rescue group companion animals
  4. America can feed all its hungry companion animals
  5. America can help all its seniors, military and families in need with their companion animals

To achieve our 5 Core Beliefs America CAN is bringing a new animal welfare model to local communities across America. America CAN is creating an alternative to the present animal welfare model in America.  

And a national/local animal welfare organization that is focused exclusively on companion animals welfare and safety. 

And the only national organization who has a set goal that every community build a nexus of organizations in their community of animal businesses, veterinary professionals, shelters, non-profit rescues, and government entities with the single focus to achieve 95% adoption rates in their community.

America CAN is a nexus of local animal businesses and non-profits working in partnership with local, city, county  and State organizations for the care and welfare of its local citizens and companion animals.

Each local America CAN will be independent yet an affiliate member of America CAN. Each one will be local but have national marketing and program support.Each will have its own community name.

As example in our community we have created “Cherokee CAN”. Cherokee CAN is comprised of Cherokee County animal rescue groups, the Cherokee County animal shelter, Cherokee County Animal Control, the Cherokee County pet industry of pet retail stores, veterinary offices and other community family and animal welfare groups.

Is higher cost dog food really worth it?

At Meals Fur Pets we are asked on a regular basis, is higher cost dog food really worth it?

There is a huge variety of foods on the market, each promising something different. “Complete and Balanced Nutrition”; “Beautiful and Shiny Coat”; “Extra Support for Healthy Joints”. The guarantees are endless, but do these food companies deliver what they say they will? If you are buying the cheap brands from the grocery store, they definitely do not. Inside the bag or can are fillers, chemicals, and junk with no nutritional value. Is there an alternative for feeding your sweet Pittie?

Yes, and it’s sold in pet specialty stores. Premium pet food has ingredient lists which are full of things you can actually pronounce: beef, carrots, apples, flaxseed, etc. Many manufacturers of these foods use components safe for humans to eat. Some are even organically grown. Better ingredients mean more nutritionally solid pet food. More nutritious food means you don’t have to feed as much as the inferior food for your dog to be satisfied. This also means you will have less waste to pick up on your potty walks. That’s because your Pit will be using more of the food to fuel her body.

Better food isn’t just about a difference in purchase price. You will also notice results when visiting the vet. Since nutrition is the foundation of a healthy dog, your beautiful DOG will thrive while eating food that’s good for her. A healthy dog means less need to visit the vet for illness.
