A woman faces jail for feeding cats abandoned by her neighbor. A dog is killed by those whose job it was to protect him. A cat named Dale finds his family for 36 cents. Pequannock, Morris, and Bloomfield are members of the 90% Club. Redemption, my film about the No Kill revolution in America, is available for free on on YouTube. A former PETA field worker provides a first hand look inside the PETA kill room. And the No Kill Advocacy Center celebrates 15 years of saving lives.
In case you missed it:
- A 79-year old woman who fed cats abandoned by a neighbor is going to jail for 10 days. Her crime? Compassion.
- The death of Vinnie at the hands of those whose job it was to protect him is being defended by a small number of hard-hearted individuals. Here’s why their view is not only dead wrong, but pernicious.
- A lesson in compassion thanks to a cat named Dale who was lost, found, and for 36 cents, reuinted with his family.
- Pequannock, NJ, is a member of the most exclusive club in the No Kill movement: communities placing 99% or more of the animals. It reported a placement rate of 100% for cats and 100% for dogs.
- Morris, NJ, is a member of the 90% Club. It reported a placement rate of 95% for dogs, 92% for cats, and 97% for other animals.
- And Bloomfield, NJ, reported a 99% placement rate for dogs, 96% for cats, and 100% for other animals.
- Redemption, my film about the No Kill revolution in America, is now available to watch for free on YouTube.
- My interview with Heather Harper-Troje, a former PETA field worker, who provides a first hand look inside PETA’s kill room, is also available on YouTube.
And finally, the No Kill Advocacy Center, my organization, is celebrating its 15th birthday and 15 years of saving lives. When we 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. Today, roughly 60,000,000 people live in communities saving at least 80% of the animals, over 20,000,000 people live in communities where the municipal shelter is saving at least 90% of dogs and cats in their shelters; and over 2,000,000 people live in communities where the municipal shelter is saving at least 98% of the animals, working to return “euthanasia” to its dictionary definition of ending the lives of irremediably suffering animals for reasons of mercy.
