Safety Net Pledge for Life
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." ~Mohandas Gandhi
What can you do? The answers are simple, yet profound. Although the plight of the homeless animal population in Dane County – and across the U.S. – is heartbreaking, there is hope. This problem can be solved, and we can all play a part. Finding the solution offers us the chance to become better people and to express the very best of our humanity. We believe solving this issue can be a stepping stone toward an expanding circle of compassion, and a call to action to create a society that is just and caring to all living beings – beginning with the precious ones "right in our own backyards."
I want to support Dane County Humane Society and help spread the safety net for homeless animals in Dane County! I pledge to work toward an "adoption guarantee" community and understand that my actions have a direct effect in creating a more humane world.
I make this pledge to the animals that I know and to the ones I may never see. I make this pledge to honor their love, companionship, and intrinsic value. I understand that the solutions are in my hands.
I make this pledge with love and hope.
