(KSL NEws) No More Homeless Pets in Utah is asking Utah residents to cast their vote against euthanasia.

The group says every time someone adopts a cat or dog from a shelter or rescue group instead of buying from a pet store or breeder, it reduces the number of animals put to death each year.

The push is part of a five year campaign to reduce the number of pets euthanized in Utah each year by 15,000.

The campaign started in 2000, and has already saved more than 75,000 animals.

Gregory Castle/ Pres., No More Homeless Pets in Utah: "We're making progress, but there are still a lot of dogs and cats that are put to sleep in the shelters. We're trying to stop that."

Today a "pawlitically" active pooch even joined in the effort, and cast his vote.
