This came across my email desk and I thought it was good enough for a blog post. As my readers know, I am at odds with "No Kill" for de-valuing pets via BOGO sales, give aways, throw them out the door. Outta sight, outta mind is the motto for the "No Kill Equation".

This person is expressing a reality associated with this devaluation. Hoarders, sold to research labs, abusers, all of these take advantage of this devaluation. Now it seems that rich boy Michelson is joining the crowd to de-value pets. He is behind this particular scheme mentioned.

Subj: Thought's on Found Animal's shelter program 9 Lives for $9.00
Hi everyone,

As you may or may not know, Found Animals has a summer long program with the LA City/County and Private Shelters to encourage cat adoption for cats 9 months and older in hopes that it will reduce euthanasia .

Their “9 Lives for $9.00” program allows the public to adopt any cat for $9.00 (if they get one, two, or three...) if the cat is 9 months or loder.   I have been hearing from some non-profit rescue groups that this program is hurting their adult cat adoptions and that they feel the low price is basically giving cats away that may subject them to cruelty, hoarding, research etc.  

I am just wonderfing what people's thoughts are on this because I work with a couple rescue groups who were going to talk with Found Animals on this topic and they wanted to get some feedback from the community, good or bad. 

Please send your thoughts & ideas to me or Teri Harrington at



Please pass this along so that this person can get some responses. If the local rescues don't wise up, they will be swallowed up by the Wal-marts of the humane community.
