Building A No Kill Community.

"Adopting an animal means a shelter does not have to kill. Not only can a shelter adopt it's way out of killing, it should." Nathan J. Winograd

Last night I attended a seminar titled, The Legal Landscape for Building a no Kill Community and Ending The Killing of Savable Animals in U.S Shelters. Facilitated by Nathan J. Winograd. It was great.

Nathan J. Winograd was the Director of the national No Kill Advocacy Center. He is a graduate of Stanford Law School, a former criminal prosecutor and attorney, was director of operations for the San Francisco SPCA and executive director of the Tompkins County SPCA, two of the most successful shelters in the nation. He has spoken nationally and internationally on animal sheltering issues, has written animal protection legislation at the state and national level, has created successful No Kill programs in both urban and rural communities, and has consulted with a wide range of animal protection groups including some of the largest and best known in the nation.

If you get a chance pick up his book, Redemption: The Myth of Pet Overpopulation and the No Kill Revolution in America.
