NO KILL SHELTERS WORK
Thousands of puppy mills exist in the United States, as well as overseas, and the dogs they produce are sold via the Internet, newspaper ads and to brokers and pet stores across the country. The overwhelming majority of pet stores (just about all) obtain their puppies from puppy mills or puppy mill brokers.
Don't buy while shelter pets die.
But while puppy mills thrive, animals are killed by the thousands in shelters. Why? "Generally, pet stores succeed when a shelter is not meeting market demand or competing effectively, and because animal lovers do not want to go into a shelter that kills the vast majority of the animals" Nathan Winograd. The key to getting people to adopt shelter pets, is offsite adoptions.
"Our ambition is to fill the bus up with cats and dogs and set up adoption events at locations and public events throughout the city. By taking animals to where people work, live and play, we want to make it easy for them to adopt a shelter animal rather than buy one from a breeder, pet store, or elsewhere." says Amanda St. John, Founder of MuttShack Animal Rescue.

"There are many challenges and roadblocks to No Kill. From bureaucrats who are content with the status quo, to uncaring shelter directors who are hostile to reform even when presented with overwhelming proof that the No Kill model saves lives. The roadblocks to No Kill are considerable, but not undefeatable.
We have a choice. We can embrace No Kill as our future or we can continue to legitimize the failed “adopt a few and kill the rest” method.
Demand better. Demand change. This is your community and these are your community animals that are being killed."
