I hope you have a pawesome weekend.
Today I’d like to tell you about SENA. Better yet, I will let SENA tell you about SENA:
“SENA Animal Rescue is a no-kill organization established in October 2012. Our mission is to stop euthanasia, neglect and abuse towards animals that are scheduled for euthanasia in our shelters. Our goal is to build a no-cage, comfortable, condominium style facility, for the less fortunate cats and dogs, and comfortable stables for horses. They will be staying with us indefinitely until responsible loving homes can be found.
We will have NO CAGES and NO BIAS AGAINST BREED, HEALTH OR AGE.
Imagine walking through a hot, humid animal shelter filled with crates that are holding three to four dogs per cage. Some dogs are cowering because they are too tall for the crates. They look at you with their big brown eyes, pleading to be set free. We don’t know their life before this cage, or how they got here, but it’s not because he or she had a loving home. The leash is put on the dog that was once someone’s pet. It wags its tail-a walk!-and bounces along happily to “The Room”. Once in The Room, the dog is lifted onto the table by a couple of veterinary technicians. Apprehension is in those brown eyes. Sensing something is not right, the dog starts to struggle. The pink stuff is injected and the dog goes limp, but not without struggle, spasming and gasping for air. Those brown eyes half-close and become lifeless. The tail will never wag again. The body is stacked on top of the corpses of other dogs and cats whose lives have been erased today.
One animal is euthanized every 8 seconds in the United States, extinguishing forever the precious live of a pet that would have made a wonderful companion. Unfortunately 70% of cats and 60% of dogs that enter the shelters are euthanized. It is sad to say that 90% of these pets are adoptable.
SENA is an all-volunteer non-profit organization and stands for Stopping Euthanasia Neglect and Abuse. Our mission is to put an end to euthanasia, and stop neglect and abuse of those who cannot speak for them selves.
SENA’s Animal Rescue’s goal is to build the largest No-kill, condominium style animal care center and provide thousands of animals in years to come, with clean, comfortable quarters while they wait for their forever home in our beautiful sanctuary. Dogs and cats will have condominium living quarters, a large climate controlled room with access to their individual fenced yard, while rescued horses will be accommodated with top of the line stables. The facility will also include exercise and socialization and training areas for the animals. SENA Animal Rescue also plans to provide educational programs for both adults and children to inform them of the correct and humane way to care for and train their companion animals. Our pets that are too traumatized to be adopted will live out their life in the peace of SENA’s sanctuary.”
