Shelter killings are the leading cause of death for healthy dogs and cats in the United States, but as Winograd proves, it doesn't need to be.

Very inspiring. There are over 170 million adults in the US. Even if you take 50% of them out for poverty reasons, there's absolutely no reason why every single animals that is currently being allowed to run feral and/or sitting in shelters or being euthanized couldn't be adopted. We just need to start opening our hearts, instead of pursuing our own lusts.

Bravo pour cette initiative qui, je l'espère, finira par transformer la réalité pour les animaux de ce monde.

I don't think it's that easy. Many cities that have gone the no-kill route have found that the intake rate at shelters has steadily increased, which means their outreach efforts are failing to control unintended breeding, and some of the adopted animals are bouncing back to the shelters - as caring for an animal costs money, and the adoption fee, even a nominal one, is a symbol of their commitment, and many have luxury of sending overflow animals to other shelters with the gumption to make tough decisions.What will come as a surprise to most people is that even PETA characterizes no-kill advocates as "detached from the reality of shelter management."

I volunteer in a non-kill shelter in NJ; the only one in the county. When we are full and cannot take anymore in, it's heartbreaking to receive calls from people who have found a kitten or dog and want us to take it in.
The law is a kill shelter can put an animal down after 5 days.
