More than 66,000 people have signed a petition to end gas chamber euthanasia for pets at North Utah Valley Animal Shelter in Lindon.
A protest is planned for 4 p.m. on Tuesday, June 15, at Orem City Hall. Utah Animal Rights Coalition members and other supporters of the petition will make a statement to city officials directly after.
“Today, we are pleased to announce three key initiatives that have emerged from our many discussions and prayerful planning," President Russel M. Nelson said at a news conference on June 14. “Leaders of the Church have found common ground with the NAACP as we have discussed challenges that beset some of God’s children."
