    They are content with the status quo. Shelter Managers have the old guard mentality. Shelter Directors do not want to change.

    The biggest obstacles of lifesaving success in Georgia are the same obstacles faced in communities in other states where killing is the norm: shelter directors content with killing who refuse to change, uncaring bureaucrats who fail to hold those directors accountable, and the built in excuse of pet overpopulation.
    That is why any effort to reform these shelters must attack the root cause of shelter killing by removing these directors, electing animal lovers to positions of power, and exposing the myth of pet overpopulation.

    The answer was: Nathan Winograd identified three obstacles to No Kill success in Georgia, which incidentally, are the same three obstacles to be found anywhere else:
    1. Shelter directors who find killing easier than doing the work necessary to save animal lives and who are unwilling to change.
    2. Bureaucrats who don’t care enough and who fail to hold the shelter directors accountable.
    3. The tired old (and discredited) excuse of “pet overpopulation”.
    Fortunately, the animal-loving public can overcome these obstacles, and with enough resolve, get rid of said shelter directors, demand accountability, and reject excuses.
