Ellen Degeneres Says: 'Make December a No Kill Month in L.A.'

During the month of December, many people think to buy their loved ones a dog or cat as a holiday gift. What they might not realize is that every animal bought means an animal at the shelter won’t find a home. Many dogs and cats who remain homeless too long end up on the euthanasia list.

Being an animal lover and knowing about the sad statistics for companion animals at shelters, Ellen Degeneres took to her twitter account to ask her over 15 million followers not to let any animals die this December. She wrote, “If you love animals as much as I do, find out how you can make December a no kill month in L.A. with @NKLA.”

The campaign run by Best Friends Animal Society asks Los Angeles residents (although if you live outside of L.A., make it happen in your hometown too!) to save a life by adopting, fostering, donating or volunteering. There are so many ways to give back to shelter animals. If you can’t take one home, you can still make a difference and save a life.

Joining in on the campaign is animal rescue devotee and “Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba. She tweeted, “Let’s make december a NO KILL MONTH!!! No killing at any shelter. WE can do this!! FOSTER, DO NOT BUY PETS FROM PET STORES this month”.
