Nathan Winograd’s No Kill Advocacy Center Reviews US Statistics On American Shelters — 8 Comments

  1. No-Kill Rescues have paid staff, volunteers, adopters, fosters in their network who ensure cats are happy — keeping cats in crates 23 hrs pr day, 7 days a week is unacceptable & beyond cruel — I hope this is NOT the norm in your neck of the woods and an ABERRATION at that.

  2. What is the number of dogs leaving kill shelters going to no kill rescues. We call them hoarders around here. Living in crates 23 hours a day for months on in some cases years.
    Successful exodus from a shelter is only valid when the animal is the primary pet in a household or a long term until adopted foster.

  3. I’m happy that Nathan is happy, for sure.
    I, seriously, question his stats.
    In particular, it’s hard to believe that 80% of dogs entering a shelter are saved.
    I’m confused as to whether he is referring to private no-kill shelters or the dreaded county kill shelters or both.
    I would like to hear him elaborate on what innovative methods kill shelters have come up with to reduce their euthanasia rates, because I’m not seeing any.
    What I believe to be true is that TNR, along with its rules of “no touch Animal Control” has made an impact on the number of cat euthanasia today

    • I believe the stats to be accurate — there has been improvement over recent years — he DOES in fact make mention that there is still work to be done — that NOT ALL Shelters have yet complied — our work is still cut out for us — let’s keep working to ensure more & more animals are rescued, TNR’d, adopted.

    • Yes, I think he is a great man. He is very thoughtful and intelligent. His book is quite hard going but very important.
