Rosenberg, TX, went from killing 70% to a 100% ‘save’ rate.

Archeologists have unearthed what is believed to be the world’s oldest known pet cemetery in Egypt. Wichita is considering legislation to criminalize outdoor cats. Best Friends and the City of Los Angeles are lying about No Kill L.A. Why late term spays are unethical. How we make the best possible choices in order to incentivize and reward non-violent behavior towards animals. The number of communities placing over 95% and as high as 99% of the animals is increasing. And “For the first time in our history (we had) zero negative outcomes…” – how Rosenberg, TX, went from killing 70% to a 100% ‘save’ rate.

In case you missed it:

The number of communities placing over 95% and as high as 99% of the animals is increasing:

These shelters and the data nationally prove that animals are NOT dying in pounds because there are too many or too few homes or people don’t want the animals. They are dying because people in those pounds are killing them. Replace those people, implement the No Kill Equation, and we can be a No Kill nation today.

And finally, until recently, the Rosenberg, Texas, pound was typical of many American shelters, killing roughly 70% of the animals. The leadership of the shelter never saw it as their responsibility to stop doing so. Instead, staff blamed local residents, calling them “irresponsible” for failure to sterilize and make lifetime commitments to pets. No more. Last month, “For the first time in our history [they had] zero negative outcomes…” Here’s how Rosenberg went from killing 70% to a 100% ‘save’ rate.
