We don’t like the idea of anyone being homeless: human or animal. And we’re happy to hear that Ashley Judd shares our compassionate disposition.

Judd is the latest star to sign the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s petition to urge Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear to protect Kentucky’s homeless animals through tough enforcement of the state’s Humane Shelter Law.

Here’s the problem: although the current Humane Shelter Law provides “basic care for its stray cats and dogs, including food and water, shelter, and humane euthanasia,” the Animal League Defense Fund says it isn’t being upheld. Boo!

As a Kentucky girl, Judd felt it important to sign the petition, which states:

“As a supporter of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, I strongly urge you to step in and end the suffering of all innocent animals in Kentucky by pressing the legislature to act and have the state take back responsibility for oversight of these shelters.”

Sound like something you’d like to get behind? Visit the Animal League Defense Fund site and sign away!
