Stop Kitten Killing Shelter in North Carolina

Nationally, one in every five cats surrendered to a shelter does not make it out alive. However, the Burke County Animal Shelter in North Carolina kills at a rate of more than four of every five cats it takes in! It kills a shocking 87% of cats and kittens surrendered to its care. That figure is horrifying enough, but it gets worse. The Burke County shelter has been selling the bodies of the cats it kills for use in laboratories. Act now to reform this Frankenstein shelter and save cats and kittens from being sold off for body-parts.
