A proposed German law would require the socialization of dogs. California may ban the use of rodenticides responsible for killing mountain lions and bobcats. Detroit police continue to wantonly kill dogs. The U.S. Supreme Court may consider a case with enormous implications for shelter reform advocates. The number of communities in the 90% Club — an important milestone on the road to No Kill — is increasing. And finally, we celebrated three birthdays: mine, Henry Bergh’s, and the No Kill Advocacy Center’s.

In case you missed it:

The number of communities in the 90% Club — an important milestone on the road to No Kill — is increasing, including:

And finally, we celebrated three birthdays this month. Mine (with chocolates). Henry Bergh’s (with a free documentary film). And the No Kill Advocacy Center’s (with a donation).

When the No Kill Advocacy Center started, mass killing in shelters was the norm. There was only one community that saved all healthy and treatable dogs, cats, community cats, rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, and all other shelter animals. It didn’t matter if they were young, old, blind, or missing limbs. They were all guaranteed a home and they all found one. That No Kill community was created by yours truly and we have succeeded in replicating its success in communities across the country. For the animals who live in those cities and towns and for the people who love them, we are making a life and death difference. Please consider a birthday gift to the No Kill Advocacy Center today.
