Cookies for Killing

Four years of hard work finding homes for dogs, cats and other homeless pets at the Shelby County animal shelter never won a word of applause from PETA. But the prospect of this no-kill shelter getting out the death potion once again had PETA calling for a celebration. They sent a basket of cookies to congratulate the shelter on deciding they might need to kill some of the animals.

War and the No-Kill Movement

The no-kill philosophy extends way beyond homeless pets. It’s a way of living that takes killing off the table – in every area once and for all. You can’t be no-kill and go hunting. You can’t be no-kill and be pro-abortion, pro-capital punishment or pro-vivisection. And you certainly can’t be no-kill and support going to war.

Surfing Pooches Raise Big Bucks

Buddy was one of the remarkable pooches at the sixth annual Surf Dog Surf-a-Thon in Del Mar, California. It’s all fun, but with the serious purpose of raising funds for the Helen Woodward Animal Center – a no-kill shelter, adoption center and clinic, outside of San Diego.

Killing Shelter Pets Is Never the Answer

How do we bring an end to the killing of homeless pets in shelters? It’s simple: We stop killing them. Only when you take killing off the table do you start looking for real alternatives. First comes the commitment, then come the solutions, and that’s how we get to be a no-kill nation.

Big Apple’s No-Kill Goal
