My "no breeding" campaign

A friend who is on the board of our local Humane Society suggested I do “no breeding” and promote it to the different Humane Societies around the country. So I created that section today and did a little research and wrote this press release:

Online store "givitup" has items, which allow Humane Societies, Animal Shelters, and just people who love animals get the word out to stop breeding.

Everyday over 70,000 cats and dogs are born. There can never be enough homes for them, therefore over five million are put to death in shelters across the country each year, with millions more dying homeless and unwanted through starvation, disease, automobile accidents, abuse, etc.
Puppy mills are places of over breeding, inbreeding, minimal vet care, poor quality food and shelter and the killing of unwanted animals.

February is spay and neuter month for thousands of Humane Societies around the world. They are getting the word out that neutering your pet is not only good for you, neutered pets have better temperaments, it's better for the pet, they live longer healthier lives, and for the community, communities spend millions of dollars controlling and eliminating unwanted animals.
givitup has "no breeding" buttons for a fun promotional item for centers staff and volunteers.
The shop also has t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, hats, mugs and more.

I also created a “no drama” section today thinking the teen girls would like it. Sent it to a couple My Space groups, but only one person has clicked on it so far.
