Kelly Clarkson is singing a tune against killing shelter animals.

The “American Idol” winner wants everyone to show compassion for Nashville animals, which are sadly being killed at an extremely high rate.

Yesterday, Clarkson tweeted, “Nashville, please help! Lets show other cities how we are not only progressive but compassionate!” She then shared the following petition link.

The petition presented by concerned citizens is asking Mayor Karl Dean to make a change when it comes to Nashville’s Metro Animal Care and Control (MACC), which is operating at a 76 percent kill rate.

According to facts presented in the Nashville City Paper, there were a little over 1,200 animal adoptions and an astonishing 7,179 (76 percent) euthanizations in 2012 in the city of Nashville.

That’s a terribly high number. With a budget of $1.7 million dollars, the city has the money to make changes. The petition also offers suggestions on how the MACC can make improvements including the establishment of rescue and volunteer programs.

20,000 signatures are needed, but so far only a little over 7,500 people have signed.

If you agree with Clarkson and Nashville’s concerned citizens head on over and sign the petition.
