No-kill day: a celebration of compassion

    Keep getting the word out, Nathan. Thanks for the reminder, too. Sometimes it's hard to remember when dealing with current problems, isn't it? Don't give up is always a good message.

    We will never let the animals down. We will keep trying and we will never stop trying. Thank you Nathan.

    does the No Kill movement extend its philosophy of not killing to all animals? or just some animals? More than 98% of the animals killed in the US each year aren't killed in shelters---they are killed in slaughterhouses.

    Accept a grateful toast from me too!

    Hi Sara,
    I know what you mean. This is why I don't participate in that cruel system of eating tortured flesh. I am happy to say that the author of this article, Nathan Winograd, doesn't either. In fact I hear he's coming out with a vegan cookbook later this year.Just one of the many reasons why I admire and really like him.

    Rob - Sorry, but you got pretty much everything wrong in that post. The point of no kill is creating no kill communities. In fact, the adoption pact Winograd talked about created a guarantee of adoption city-wide in San Francisco. As he said, other communities have surpassed the achievements in SF.

    Furthermore, while most of the data reports numbers for dogs and cats, if you check the statistics for "others" in these communities, you will find they are saving all of the healthy and treatable hamsters, too.

    No kill is not a marketing term, it is a call to action for drastic shelter reform that is badly needed!

    The sad fact is that in refusing to educate himself, and relying on the outdated myths perpetuated by killing apologists like the Humane Society of the United States, Rob who probably thinks of himself as an animal lover, becomes nothing more than a killing apologist himself. The animals currently being killed needlessly in shelters around the nation would hardly count him among their allies.

    It is my wish that on that day every animal in every shelter across the country be kept alive and that every family looking for a new pet visit the shelters and bring one home. And then, the day after that, and the day after that....
