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.

They sent a basket of cookies to congratulate the shelter on deciding they might need to kill some of the animals.
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.

Whenever there’s a potential danger to the animal captivity industry, you can bank on Jack Hanna showing up on TV in a funny hat, looking like he’s just back from saving animals in the jungles of Africa.
On death row at Utah’s West Valley City animal “shelter,” Andrea the cat was put in the gas chamber, along with several other cats. When they took the dead cats out, Andrea was still alive.
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.
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.
Target survived the mean streets of Afghanistan. She survived a suicide bomber. She was adopted by one of the soldiers, but the one thing she couldn’t survive was an animal shelter here in the United States
