No Kill Nation and the Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation Are Not Affiliated With the Upcoming Protest Against Miami-Dade Animal Services

29 Jun

Miami, Florida – June 29, 2011:  No Kill Nation (NKN) and the Miami Coalition Against Breed Specific Legislation (MCABSL) would like to publicly clarify that they are not affiliated with the upcoming protest against Miami-Dade Animal Services, scheduled for July 9th.

NKN and MCABSL have had no role in planning or disseminating the information about this event.

The Facebook event was created by a woman named Hannah Steinberg, not to be confused with Hannah Sentenac of No Kill Nation. The two are different individuals, and No Kill Nation has no affiliation with the protest – although we can understand why confusion has occurred, due to the similarity in names.

While we absolutely support shelter reform and the installation of new leadership at Miami Dade Animal Services, we are advocacy groups, not activists – and we are working for reform through what we feel are the appropriate channels for our organizations, including the Rescue Five-O initiative, a national grassroots effort for shelter reform and legislation.

We hope this will correct any misinformation that may exist about the origination of the aforementioned event.
