Meet the Man Who is Rescuing Animal Welfare

Nathan Winograd is the leader of the No Kill movement, a genuine revolution in animal welfare. Over three million healthy and adoptable pets will be killed next year in America's shelters.

Many Shelter Animals Face the Needle, But You Can Make a Difference

I woke up to a full inbox: 66 cats to be euthanized at an Ontario pound, 70 dogs in peril in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. All scheduled for the fatal needle Tuesday morning. Canadians, please don't breed or buy while shelter pets die; please make adoption your first option; please take the time to find out how your municipality deals with pet overpopulation. I guarantee that if you knew, you would be shocked into action.
