This is the story of animal sheltering, which was born of compassion and then lost its way. It is the story of the No Kill movement, which says we can and must stop the killing. It is about heroes and villains, betrayal and redemption. And it is about a social movement as noble and just as those that have come before. But most of all, it is a story about believing in the community and trusting in the power of compassion.

The film is safe for animal lovers to watch. There are no gratuitous images and while a couple of images may be difficult, it is ultimately an uplifting film about the hope, promise, and success of the No Kill philosophy. As the film demonstrates, we now have a solution to shelter killing and it is not difficult, expensive, or beyond practical means to achieve. No Kill is a humane, sustainable, cost-effective model that allows open admission animal control shelters to return the term “euthanasia” to its dictionary definition and eliminate the killing of all animals who are not irremediably suffering.
Unlike the “adopt some and kill the rest” form of animal sheltering that dominates in the United States and is responsible for the needless killing of millions of animals every year, No Kill shelters are saving 99% of all animals entrusted to their care.
- Almost 1,000,000 people live in communities where the municipal shelter is saving at least 98% of the animals;
- About 10,000,000 people live in communities where the municipal shelter is saving at least 90% of animals; and,
- Over 40,000,000 live in communities saving at least 80%.
How are they doing it? About 7,000,000 animals enter shelters, yet roughly 30,000,000 people acquire a new companion animal every year. We can adopt our way out of killing and many communities have by implementing the cost-effective programs and services of the No Kill Equation. By working with people, embracing lifesaving programs, and treating each life as precious, a shelter can transform itself.
