We, at Morris Animal Refuge, are distraught by the events that have unfolded over the past week in our city and our country. We are heartbroken for the family and friends of George Floyd and the countless others who have suffered similar failures of justice.
Morris Animal Refuge believes in love, kindness, and compassion for all of the people and pets in our society. Our organization's staff, volunteers, and community are comprised of an extremely diverse group of people and we value the lives and wellbeing of each and every one of them.
And whether four-legged or two-legged, we will always stand up for equal and fair treatment for all and against racism and hatred.
Stay safe, hug your pets tight, and we will get through this together.
